Nikki Blonsky (right) stars as “Tracy Turnblad”

Hairspray “is ultimately one of the more engaging and fun movies of the summer”, says Todd Gilchrist (IGN.com). Read on to get full scoop:

The decision to release both I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry and Hairspray on the same day indicates that July 20, 2007 may signify the start of the gayest summer-movie weekend in Hollywood history (in recent memory, anyway). Ironically, even with Kevin James and Adam Sandler’s staunchly straight leading men in the former and John Travolta’s cross-dressing housewife in the latter, the far more broadly appealing of the two films is Hairspray, primarily because it shatters stereotypes rather than simply using them as a set-up for another formulaic (not to mention dumb) punch line.

Based not only on a popular Broadway musical but a movie of the same name by gay icon/natural-born iconoclast John Waters, the update/adaptation revels in its enthusiastic destruction of social and cultural expectations, and yet feels infinitely wholesome, fun and family-friendly. In fact, the only thing even remotely offensive about Hairspray is Travolta’s performance — not so much in terms of the singing or dancing, mind you, but how unattractive he looks as a woman.

The film stars newcomer Nikki Blonsky as Tracy Turnblad, an energetic high school student whose plus-size shape keeps her from landing a spot on Baltimore’s top TV dance program, “The Corny Collins Show,” despite a repertoire of dance moves that puts her slimmer classmates to shame. After accidentally landing in detention, Tracy meets Seaweed (Elijah Kelley), a black student who not only introduces her to a few new steps, but the idea that her exclusion may be part of a bigger problem — namely, to segregate anyone different from the blue-eyed-and-blonde-haired “standard” that dominates the show.

Enlisting her equally-plump mom Edna (Travolta), dream-guy dance partner Link (Zac Efron), best friend Penny (Amanda Bynes), and the show’s “Negro Day” host Motormouth Maybelle (Queen Latifah), Tracy decides to stand up for all of the folks who have been forgotten or cast aside. But she soon discovers that station manager Velma Von Tussle (Michelle Pfeiffer) and her daughter Amber (Brittany Snow) will stop at nothing to ensure that this ’60s TV show integrates black and white only when it broadcasts over the airwaves.

Synopsis:
It’s 1962—the ’50s are out and change is in the air. Baltimore’s Tracy Turnblad, a big girl with big hair and an even bigger heart, has only one passion—to dance. She wins a spot on the local TV dance program, “The Corny Collins Show” and, overnight, is transformed from outsider to irrepressible teen celebrity. But can a trendsetter in dance and fashion vanquish the program’s reigning princess, win the heart of heartthrob Link Larkin, and integrate a television show without denting her ‘do? Welcome to the ’60s!

Cast: John Travolta, Nicole Blonsky, Amanda Bynes, Christopher Walken, Zac Efron, Elijah Kelley, Queen Latifah, Michelle Pfeiffer, Brittany Snow, James Marsden, Allison Janney, Taylor Parks, Jesse Weafer; Directed by: Adam Shankman
