Good morning Baltimore!"

First of all: musicals are not my thing. The latest The Producers remake equalled poison for upcoming musical movies due for release.

Hairspray, however, is a different story. The film is clichéd, predictable, cheesy, corny beyond all belief, childish, features a few annoying teenager heart-throbs with no acting skills - but it is fantastic!... read more

Very Silly and Fun

I've never seen the original "Hairspray", but as it was John Waters I didn't expect the remake to be a "Family Film", but that's what it is. The setting and costumes are great, and although it's a musical the star of the show is the choreography. The storyline is how a chubby short girl in the early 60s wants to be chosen as the next cast member of a local rock'n'roll show (like American Bandsta... read more

It was absolutely hillarious! Seriously - I didnt think it would be this good!

It was truly an amazing musical and had many many funny parts to it aswell. I was surprised to see so many good actors in it like Christopher Walken, Amanda Bynes and Queen Latifa who I didnt think were in it!

Description: Tracy Turnblad, an overweight teenager with all the right moves, is obsessed with the Corny Collins Show. Every day after school, she and her best friend Penny run home to watch the show and drool over the hot Link Larkin, much to Tracy's mother Edna's dismay. After one of the stars of the show leaves, Corny Collins holds auditions to see who will be the next person on the Corny Collins show. With all of the help of her friend Seaweed, Tracy makes it on the show, angering the evil dance queen Amber Von Tussle and her mother Velma. Tracy then decides that it's not fair that the black kids can only dance on the Corny Collins Show ... (more)

“Zac Efron showed some courage in working with John Waters so soon after all his High School Musical successes. He is an excellent actor. Everything I've seen him in since the HSM series has been very satisfying.” read more

"I absolutely adore this! Amazing cast, catchy songs, great story, what more do you want?!? If y'all aint seen it, you aint lived! The cast were nominated for a Screen Actors Award for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture, but lost to the cast of No Country For Old Men. (BOO!) So, this stellar, SAG nominated cast includes: Christopher Walken, John Travolta, Queen Latifah, Michelle Pfeiffer, (Sex God) James Marsden, Amanda Bynes, Brittany Snow, (Sex God) Zac Efron, Allison Janne"

When IMDb and Rotten Tomatoes disagree (65 movies items)

"Rotten Tomatoes: 91% IMDb: 6.9 Difference- 22 Critics were overjoyed with the bopiness and fun of 'Hairspray', but musicals with big casts aren't too popular with IMDb voters (see also Chicago and Mamma Mia!). Personally, I don't think they get the credit they deserve from audiences. Thank goodness for critics then! :P "
