A couple sites earlier this year had announced Cry Baby with Universal's June catalog line-up but it was cancelled without explanation from Universal (as far as I know). Speculation here was that it is delayed to make it an SE (it was announced as bare-bones). Since seems likely to me since Waters has done commentary for each of his movies currently on DVD. If that is the case, hopefully it's not delayed too long.

Since Hairspray (1988) was made into a musical and cleaned up on Broadway, you'd think releasing Water's musical, Cry Baby (1990), would be a no brainer.

I'd buy this in a heart beat! It's the first Waters film I ever saw.

I'd like to see his pre "Pink Flamingoes" movies released as well. I found "Multiple Maniacs" on pre-viewed VHS this weekend for $5, and would love a DVD with commentary (Waters commentaries are absolutly priceless!)I'm guessing music rights are prohibitive for these films. (Elvis is heard in Multiple Maniacs).

And I have my DVD Posted Image This was released (but has since been discontinued) in Japan in the jewel case format... the print is passable (albeit full screen) and the audio barely acceptable, but unfortunately the Japanese subtitles are burnt in. Still, better than nothing at all I suppose Posted Image

I would love it if they would also include the TV version that has played on the USA Network several times. In addition to the occasional extra bits you might expect in a broadcast version, it has many completely different scenes including more songs and a different finale.

I have thison order as well, any reviews, anyone have it?

Anyword on an updated Serial Mom? It's the only other Waters movie I'm missing, and I've heard conflicting reports on the quality of the current disc.

Doesn't this film have a girl with a nasty puss? If so, I saw it in a theater years ago - loved it.
