Movie Reviews Hairspray

Synopsis:

Tracy Turnblad, a big girl with big hair and an even bigger heart, has only one passion – dancing. Her dream is to appear on "The Corny Collins Show," Baltimore's hippest dance party on TV. Tracy seems a natural fit for the show except for one not-so-little problem – she doesn't fit in. Her plus-sized figure has always set her apart from the cool crowd, which she is reminded of by her loving but overly protective plus-sized mother, Edna. That doesn't stop Tracy because if there is one thing that this girl knows, it's that she was born to dance. After wowing Corny Collins at her high school dance, Tracy wins a spot on his show and becomes an instant on-air sensation, much to the chagrin of the show's reigning princess, Amber Von Tussle, and her scheming mother, Velma, who runs television station WYZT. Even worse for Amber is the fact that it's not just the audience who loves the new girl in town; Amber's sweetheart, Link Larkin, seems to be smitten with Tracy's charms as well. This dance party gets personal as a bitter feud erupts between the girls as they compete for the coveted "Miss Teenage Hairspray" crown. At school, however, a short stint in detention and raised-eyebrows caused by the budding relationship between her best friend Penny Pingleton and Seaweed opens Tracy's eyes to a bigger issue than the latest dance craze or the coolest hairdo – racial inequality. Throwing caution to the wind, she leads a march with Motormouth Maybelle to fight for integration and winds up with an arrest warrant instead. Tracy is on the lam now and goes underground--literally--to her best friend Penny's basement. Has Tracy's luck finally run out? Will she miss the final dance-off against Amber and forfeit the title of "Miss Hairspray," or will she sing and dance her way out of trouble again?

Movie Reviews Hairspray - Robert's Review

"Hairspray" is a very fun and entertaining movie musical that has a great message. The main theme (for anyone who hasn't seen the original) is about ending racial segregation and just accepting people as people, not as whites, blacks, etc. I really enjoyed the songs and the performances by the extremely talented cast… including John Travolta, Queen Latifah, Amanda Bynes, Zac Efron, Michelle Pfeiffer, Christopher Walken, and the star of the movie – newcomer Nicole Blonsky! "Hairspray" is the kind of movie that can entertain you the entire time, having you singing and tapping your feet the entire time, and also really make you think at the same time. Of all the performances, the strangest was John

Travolta, who plays Tracy Turnblad's mother. Seeing him as a woman was at the same time very creepy and very hilarious, especially when he was doing a duet with Christopher Walken, who plays Tracy Turnblad's father. Even crazier yet was Amanda Bynes' role… all she did for 95% of the movie was stare wide-eyed at the camera and suck on a lollipop. She didn't have many lines of dialogue and she really didn't do much of anything until the final part of the movie. Wow, she sure got a deal (and I wonder how much she got paid to stand around and eat candy like that). I really want that job! Overall, "Hairspray" is a great movie and I happily recommend it to everyone.

All in all, I'd give this movie 4 Travolas in Drag (out of 5). Re-watch value: HIGH.

Movie Reviews Hairspray Brett's Review

"Hairspray" is everything a movie musical should be: fun, entertaining, a pleasure to watch, and something to tap your feet to. Hairspray not only translates to film wonderfully, it transcends in a very addictive way! From the opening scene with the subtle rhythm of the car horns and construction banging... Tracy Turnblad (Nikki Blonsky) riding a garbage truck to school singing "Good Morning Baltimore," it was all put together perfectly. The performances were exceptional, especially newcomer Nikki Blonsky, with Queen Latifah, Christopher Walken, John Travolta, and of course Amanda Bynes. The duet with Walken and Travolta (You're Timeless to me) was both hilarious and fun. This movie will have you tapping your feet, nodding your head and singing to the music. It was a good movie and a great joy to watch.

Overall Rating: 4 Songs (out of 5) Re-Watch Value: High (Yes another DVD for my collection, and maybe once more in the theatre.)

Trivia: (1) Cameo: [John Waters (director of the first 'Hairspray (1988)')] "the flasher who lives next door." (2) Cameo: [Ricki Lake (Tracy Turnblad in the first 'Hairspray (1988)')] William Morris talent agent." (3) Amanda Bynes' character, Penny, is seen constantly eating suckers. Her father, who is a dentist, became very worried for Amanda's dental health, as it was estimated she ate about 40 sucker's a day. Amanda told him that she wasn't really eating all of them, when in reality she ate them all.
