Hi Kids. Remember, always look both ways before crossing.
When Cry-baby is talking to Allison in the beginning of the movie, Wanda takes the lollipop out of her mouth but in the next shot it is back in her mouth.
The film begins with an old-fashioned 50's style Universal logo. It's also accompanied by 50's doo-wop music. A stage curtain opens up the movie.
In the original version, the courtroom scene has an exchange between Wanda (Traci Lords) and her mother and father (Patricia Hearst and David Nelson) where Wanda asks her parents to get her out of the situation. Specifically, she asks them to get her "the fuck" out of here. "Fuck" is beeped out when Wanda initially utters it, and subsequent uses of the word are beeped as well when Wanda's mother asks her husband what the F-word means. The beeping-out continues until Wanda's mother asks the judge if she can take her daughter "the fuck home," uncensored, causing the courtroom audience to chuckle. In a version being aired on "Indie" channel in November, 2007, the scene is intact, but the word "fuck" is not beeped out.
