Joyous and fun!

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. 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!

Walken-A-Thon (53 movies items)

"We get both a Singin and Dancin Walken and Fatherly Walken all in one here. This movie has always been one of my personal favorites because of its positive message about diversity and acceptance as well as making one's own dreams come true. The songs are catchy as all heck and Walken and Travolta were perfect as Wilbur and Edna."

film diary 2013 (297 movies items)

" 3 Mar Not by kind of film, but decided to watch it on TV. + Loved Christopher Walken in this film, he can sing too + It was pretty funny to see Trevolta as a fat woman + The production design was great, love this setting - The songs weren't catchy at all - Didn't like the main character - The story was pretty lame"
