It is really a great musical, and a little comedy if you listen close for the one liners.
Great mother/daughter night out! We dressed the kids up with "big hair" wigs, party dresses and went out and enjoyed a great movie. Go See It!
Not only it's one of the best movies of 2007, but the best musical in the past 10 years. "Hairspray" is a delight. It's started as a 1988 movie by John Walters, then it became a musical in 2002, and five years later, it became a movie again, which is better than the 1988 version. The minute Nikkir Blousky sprang out of bed as the film opens, the energy level never lets up. John Travolta is great as her mother. He played more a character and less of a publicity stunt. the movie has captured the mood of 1962 from the hair right down to the civil march scene. A mother and her daughter are out to crush Nikki's dreams of dancing on television. But that won't stop Nikki or her friends. As for the hairstyle, my favorite is the hairstyle wore by Amanda Bynes. You can't stop the fun the movie has gernerated. "Hairspray" is the word.
If you can get past the cheesiness of the film quality, the movie's plot and music is very good.
