Film Review: Hairspray

3 Aug

Plot: Set in Baltimore during the 1960s dance TV craze, a zaftig high school hair-hopper, Tracy Turnblad (Nikki Blonsky), graduates from outsider to celebrity trendsetter and along the way she stars on “The Corny Collins Show,” wins the heart of resident hunk Link Larkin (Zac Efron) and kicks down the barriers for black and white integration on local television.

I was skeptical about this film but was surprised that I ended up really, really enjoying it – the catchy tunes, the feel-good factor, most especially the wonderful, colorful characters. It’s a real hoot to see Christopher Walken and John Travolta playing husband and wife, and Michelle Pfeiffer is just perfect playing she-devil. I can’t wait to see it again and get the soundtrack.
