In a loosey-goosey parody of Eisenhower-era rebel movies, John Waters reworks the same gleefully synthetic early rock & roll material he sent up in Hairspray — only here the satire is muted and scattershot. There are some funny moments, but this may be the first time the director’s scabrous, anarchic wit seems vaguely depressed.
