"Hairspray" - Must See Movie

"Hairspray" debuted in movie theaters nationwide yesterday. Rarely do I see movies on release dates since I loathe cinemas being packed to the hilt with noisy crowds of people. But I had nothing better to do on a Friday night, so I tagged along with my parents to a 10 o'clock showing. From the first song, to the very last, I never stopped laughing. The audience loved it (except for my parents who needed constant nudging on my part to stay awake...10 is late for them ya know) and at least every 10-20 minutes, everyone was genuinely laughing out loud.
"Hairspray," based on John Waters' Broadway production and a remake of the 1998 movie musical, is already garnering great reviews from critics. They claim that director Adam Shankman retains Waters' theme of feeling like an outcast and overcoming that feeling. The film's story of embracement and tolerance provides "a beautiful message wrapped in crazy paper" Shankman says. Not only does it stick to the original, intended theme, it lures in the audience and makes every second count.
Director: Adam Shankman
Cast includes: Nikki Blonsky, John Travolta, Amanda Bynes, Michelle Pfeiffer, Christopher Walken, Queen Latifah and Zac Efron.
