Movie Review by Movie Addict
April 19th, 2008

Our bazooms are our weapons.

Favorite Movie Quote: "My brother wouldn't touch your titties with a ten foot pole. He likes his women bad, Lenora, not cheap."

This has to be the funniest send up of those teen musicals that could only come from the imagination of writer/director John Waters (Hairspray, Pecker).

Starring Johnny Depp and Amy Locane (Blue Sky, Going All the Way) with a supporting cast that is familiar and fun: Polly Bergen ("Desperate Housewives"), Iggy Pop, Ricki Lake (both Hairsprays), porn queen Traci Lords, Troy Donahue, Willem Dafoe, and many more' with fantastic singing by James Intveld and Rachel Sweet (I have to get this soundtrack!).

If you like John Waters and the music of the 50s, then this is a movie that you will not want to miss. Depp and Locane are to die for! Yes, it has some Waters wildness peppered in and that makes it a must-see.

I love this flick. I could watch it over and over again and never tire of it. Johnny Depp's humility and sense of sarcasm in here are supreme.

I know what you mean. I plan to watch it again tonight. I love the music and Depp is fantastic.
