  • Welcome To The Sixties Again

    Aug 20, 2007 by pmills1210 is a Top Reviewer on Epinions in Movies
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Cast, especially Blonsky, Walken, and Pfeiffer, music
    Cons: Some will find Travolta in a woman's role a bit bizarre

    Summary: Three popular comedies that can hardly be considered light-hearted have become the inspiration for some light-hearted musicals. First came Roger Corman's The Little Shop Of Horrors, then came Mel Brooks's Oscar-winning story, The Producers. ... read more

  • You Can't Stop The Beat ... As If You'd Want To!

    Nov 2, 2010 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: The music, dancing and inspiring dialogue
    Cons: I literally can't find anything wrong with this film

    Summary: This is absolutely on of the most fantastic movies to see if you love musicals. It is a celebration of not only being big and beautiful or black and beautiful but it is a celebration of being yourself. After watching this movie there is no doubt that ... read more

  • FUN, FUN, FUN!

    Jul 23, 2008 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Fun, upbeat musical.
    Cons: None! It was fun!

    Summary: We loved, loved, loved this movie. Yes, it's another redo off another old movie but this was soo good! This is one of my daughters favorite movies and she is 4! The storyline is fun, the plot is light hearted and the music is catchy and makes you want ... read more

  • Nice lively music

    Nov 16, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Lively music, dancing, acting.
    Cons: I didn't want it to end.

    Summary: This movie will keep you awake unlike some movies I have seen recently. The movie starts out right away as being very lively. The star (the teenage girl who wants to be on the show) is a cute girl who has a good opinion of herself. I can't think of ... read more

  • A Great Remake!

    Sep 19, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: cast, script
    Cons: it's a musical

    Summary: I, myself, am not a fan of musicals but found myself dragged off to see this film with my mother who was very much in love with the original John Waters' film. The cast was great, John Travolta as Edna Turnblad was priceless. I found myself laughing ... read more

  • Very well done!!!

    Sep 8, 2007 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: The whole cast was great; very catchy songs
    Cons: none

    Summary: Although this is a remake of the original musical, I highly recommend Hairspray. The casting was wonderful! Michelle Pheifer is beautiful as always and perfect for the meany, manipulative role. Newcomer Nikki Blonsky, who used to work for Cold Stone ... read more

  • Hairspray versus The Brady Bunch

    Sep 6, 2007 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Great singing and dancing, great costumes, catchy songs
    Cons: No Ann B. Davis

    Summary: This reviewer like to compare each film to something of a higher plane; something at a completely different level. This higher entity will be television's The Brady Bunch, which aired for from 1969 to 1974. In this review, we shall compare and contrast ... read more

  • Hairspray - my new No.1 Musical!!

    Sep 3, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Funny, great songs, great music, great dancing, great cast, even deals with racism etc...
    Cons: ... Walken not completely convincing... nothing else really!

    Summary: I haven't seen the 1988 version of Hairspray which starred Ricki Lake (who gets a small role in this movie), nor had I seen the stage version, so I had no real expectations regarding this film. The trailer made it look like it had some good moments and ... read more

  • Hairspray: Good, But Could Have Been So Much Better.

    Aug 24, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Generally entertaining, good messages
    Cons: Some poor acting, not as funny as it should have been

    Summary: I’ve been very excited to see Hairspray ever since seeing and absolutely loving the musical version in New York. Both this 2007 movie and the musical versions are based on an original 1988 movie. ... read more

  • Hairspray: just can't get enough

    Aug 24, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Family friendly, funny, musical, great message, cute and innocent love story
    Cons: Swear words come out of now where, songs can seem long, awkward moments with Travolta

    Summary: When I first heard a new "Hairspray" was coming out based on the Broadway show, I was a bit skeptical, but I decided I had to see what Hollywood could do with it. I was especially impressed with the rating-PG. Finally, a PG movie meant for those past the ... read more

  • Hairspray (2007)

    Aug 15, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: good cast, music, fun
    Cons: sorry, but John Travolta didn't need to be in this

    Summary: The highest compliment I could possibly give to this summer's Hairspray is that, while it is not my kind of movie at all, I still found myself enjoying it. I wasn't one of those kids who watched Grease over and over, who had any desire to ... read more

  • Hairspray Exuberantly Examines the Notion of Othernes

    Aug 5, 2007 by bilbopooh is a Top Reviewer on Epinions in Movies
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: generally joyous, important message
    Cons: all the attention on Travolta makes it rather hard to accept Edna as a woman

    Summary: I've been hearing a lot about Hairspray over the last couple years thanks to the enthusiasm of my young cousins, who were such fans of the show that they went to see it on Broadway. Aside from hearing the effervescent opening number, Good ... read more

  • Hairspray from Broadway to the Big Screen still #1

    Jul 20, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: A must see for all movie goers.
    Cons: None

    Summary: What kind of movie do you get when you put people like John Travolta, Queen Latifah, Michelle Pheiffer and so many others together? One of the best comedy/musicals that I have ever seen. I just wasn't too sure about seeing John Travolta in drag, it ... read more

  • Hairspray: This High School Musical Stands Up and Shines

    Jul 20, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Blonsky, Travolta, Efron, music, dancing, lots of fun, true to the original without repeating it
    Cons: a few cringe worthy lines, a few characters could use a tad more screen time

    Summary: I love the original Hairspray which made me slightly leery of the remake despite its outstanding cast and potential for fun music and strong story. Much to my delight, this incarnation of Hairspray is even better than the original. The ... read more

  • It's Loud, But at Least it Can Sing

    Jul 20, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great songs, most of the cast is good
    Cons: John Travolta, the movie is very silly at times

    Summary: Possible minor spoilers The fever “Hairspray” is spreading about seems to be contagious, but I never caught it while watching it. Most critics love it, while I’m more on the fence here. I’m not too crazy about it but in the end, “Hairspray” did have ... read more

  • "Hairspray" keeps the beat in latest version

    Jul 18, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: The toe-tapping energy is hard to resist.
    Cons: The pacing is uneven, as is John Travolta's performance.

    Summary: Singing, dancing, social commentary, and John Travolta in a dress. Really, what's not to love about "Hairspray," the motion picture adaptation of the Broadway musical adaptation of the John Waters film? Well, to be honest, the film is far from ... read more

  • Of Hair and Social Responsibility

    Jul 15, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great translation of a Broadway musical to the Hollywood venue..
    Cons: Musical means it will appeal to a somewhat niche audience.

    Summary: Hairspray is a classic musical to see. At least that what everyone has been telling me since I was in high school, but the opportunity to see it had never come along. The closest I got was playing the rock and roll introduction to Hairspray's "Corny ... read more

    Pros: Singing, Dancing, and a relevant story line
    Cons: There no cons for me, the movie is Great!!!
