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 clichรฉd, 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.

"Here's a movie that's based off of a musical stage play that it itself was based off of a movie. And, of course, that were named Hairspray. Now I'm not usually a fan of Broadway musicals, particularly those that have been adapted for the big screen. The fact that this movie is on the list shows that every once in a while, one does come out that ends up sticking to my hair. Oh, and BTW, check out Christopher Walken and John Travolta in this movie..... Last time these two "guys" starred in th"
