Since I dearly love the original film, I was highly suspect of the "Hairspray" remake... but I loved it! Great period costuming, locations, sets, color and detail, fun music, still a great message. Nicely shot and cut. They even managed to get a vivid "Technicolor" look in the print. JT is no Divine, but he is not objectionable (save his singing). Not as rich in fascinating specifics, character moments and laughs as the Waters original, but a very, very fun time. I want to live in that world! I'll see it again.
Be sure to note Tracy's bedstand reading library...
The film is rated PG and only a shade above "G". Wolfette would love Hairspray, and it would love her, too. HS is both zany and touching at the same time. They were giving away free DVD previews at Circuit City yesterday.
