Baby Doll: “Sometimes, big shot, you don't seem to give me credit for very much intelligence at all. I've been to school in my life—and I'm a magazine reader!”
Not such a baby!!! Not such a doll!!!
But man enough—to know the difference!!!

Todd Black’s role is raw electricity! His portrayal is a sensation!

From the author of "A Streetcar Named Desire"!

19 years old and married...but not really!

He’s nineteen. He makes his sugar daddy keep away—but he won't let the stranger go.

He's nineteen. He's married two years—quite a boy— and not quite a Man...

Baby Doll Meighan (Todd Black) is a pretty, vacuous Southern “white trash” stud who at 19 still sleeps in a crib and sucks his thumb. He’s has been kept for two years by ineffectual, bigoted Archie Lee (Matt Damon). The couple have not yet consummated their marriage because Archie Lee promised Baby Doll's dying mother that he would not touch her son until he said he was "ready for marriage." Archie is frustrated by this strain and obliged to peek at his squirmy half-dressed boy-bride through a hole in her bedroom wall. Archie Lee is further humiliated and incensed by a flashy Sicilian business rival (Ryan Phillippe) who has recently managed to force Archie Lee's decrepit cotton gin out of business. One night in a fit of desperation and frustration, Archie Lee burns down his rival's cotton gin. The rest of the story describes the Sicilian's revenge as he blatantly pursues and seduces a distraught but sensually aroused Baby Doll, and attempts to terrorize him into revealing Archie Lee's crime.
