“(Hair)spraying” Happiness


I have never seen a film so sincere and remain very entertaining. The movie musical Hairspray radiates with so much optimism that it can brighten your view of the world! It will leave you smiling even after the credits have ended and you’re out of the cinema. Hairspray is an adaptation of the Broadway musical of the same title (also adapted from the 1988 comedy film by John Waters). The story takes place in `60s Baltimore and revolves around Tracy Turnblad (newcomer Nikki Blonsky), a plump teenager whose dream is to become part of the “coolest” teenage dancers in the local TV program of WYZT station, The Corny Collins Show. She finally gets her chance when Corny Collins announces that one of his council kids (the teenagers who dance in the show) is taking a leave of absence and there will be an audition for a new dancer. Tracy’s timid best friend, Penny Pingleton (Amanda Bynes)-whose mother won’t even allow Penny to watch the show, accompanies her to the audition. But Tracy is instantly turned down by Velma von Tussle (Michelle Pfeiffer), WYZT’s station manager because of her size and her support for the integration of the white and black people of America. Velma also choreographs the dances in the show. She is also Amber’s (Brittany Snow) mother–one of the council kids-and being such makes sure that her daughter gets the most exposure in the show. When Tracy finally gets in the Corny Collins show, she becomes a threat not only to Amber’s popularity but to the latter’s relationship with the show’s heartthrob Link Larkin (Zac Efron), as Link becomes increasingly fond of Tracy.

    ur absolutely ryt Girl!!! of all musical films that I already watched (baka may ipahihiram ka diyan?) “Hairspray” is the best. It has wonderful story, great cast and inspiring music.

    John T. – grabe! His acting? Exceptional! landi-landi n’ya pero i love it.
    Michelle P. – without words to say, she can act well – mata-mata lang pare.
    Queen Latifah – mas na-aapreciate ko siya when she sings “I know where I’ve been.” Her voice complements the beautiful and inspiring song…

    sa mga kabataan… mas gusto ko iyong character ni amanda bynes. i don’t expect for a sidekick but she’s cool. saka pala si Taylor Parks, okay s’ya.

    pero all in all for me the best talaga si John Travolta!!!
