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

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.

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!

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)

Movies I Watched On An Airplaine (19 movies items)

"This was the third movie that I tried to watch on my return flight home to Sea-Tac from Amsterdam Schiphol (in May of 2009). I say "tried to watch" because 'Hairspray' was so stupid and annoying (not to mention boring) that I eventually gave up on it (and moved on to random TV show episodes, or decided to just listen to music for the rest of the flight home or something). I should add that I've never seen the original 'Hairspray' (and I don't really want to), but I certainly HOPE that it's be"
