Overall, this movie itself is worth the price, what with all the amazing songs and dancing, and a script that's about real issues that, though the movie is set in 1962, are still relevant today (race, size, friendship, loyalty, etc...), but when you put a great extras-filled 2-disc DVD inside such a wonderful gift set, you really can't go wrong!
This is one feel-good movie, with energetic song and dance numbers every few minutes that will absolutely have you smiling and tapping your toes. I soon forgot about Travolta playing Tracy's mother and just enjoyed the performance, which is very good. Nikki Blonsky is adorable and does a spectacular job in her first movie; Pfeiffer is convincing in the unsympathetic role of a bigot. Christopher Walken is a joy to watch as always, totally charismatic and loveable as the eccentric dad. This movie is a lot like Grease but much more wholesome and positive. It's a happy, family film with lots of catchy tunes and talented actors.
Essentially a musical with a message, this version takes the original 1988 John Waters film and the Broadway musical, and combines them with a new style and a fresh application of Ultra Clutch hairspray to get out any kinks.
The time is 1962, and segregation still exists in Baltimore, especially at the local TV station managed by Velma von Tussle. Tracy Turnblad is a plus sized teenager of sunshiny disposition and big heart, and her dream is to appear on the popular teen show "The Corny Collins Show" and maybe one day to win the Miss Teenage Hairspray pageant.
(To the tune of "Grease")
She sees no difference between black & white
She's just a teenage girl
With a good appetite
There ain't no danger she can go too far
She just believes right now that she can become a star
Hairspray's the word
They think her dream is just a growing pain
They just don't understand
Though it's so very plain
Her hips are moving
Tracy's so surreal
She starts the fight right now
The segregation appeal
Hairspray's the word.
(is the word, is the word, that you heard)
It's got groove.
It's got meaning.
Hairspray's the time,
It's the cast,
It's the dancing
Hairspray's the way we are feeling.
She took the pressure and she threw away
Discrimination should belong to yesterday
She never knew that she could make it that far
By just believing that
People should be who they are
Hairspray's the word.
(is the word, is the word, is the word....Read more ›
