Aro Favourite Hairspray


USA 2007, 117 minutes
Dir. Adam Shankman
Rating: [PG]
Genres: Comedy / Musical, Dance

Topics: Period 1960s.


Aroview: Sweet, plump Tracey Turnblad (newcomer Nikki Blonsky) twists and do-wops her way into her own dream - a place in the core cast of the Corny Collins dance show - and into U.S. civil rights history, in this toe-tapping, butt-wiggling, beehive-jiggling 1960s period musical.

Adpated from the Broadway show, the '07 edition lacks the B-grade bubblegum tang of the 1988 John Waters original, but amps up the musical pep and feelgood fun, and features the spectacle of a fat-suited and in-drag John Travolta in the Divine role as Mrs Turnblad.
