YOU CAN’T STOP THE BEAT

HAIRSPRAY (2007)
– 4 out of 5 stars

Caught Hairspray and it’s fantastic!

Fancy 60s costumes, slick dance moves and cans of hairspray complete the movie. Amidst racial inequality, Tracy Turnblad fulfills her dream of entering the Corny Collins Show and faces tight competition from the von Tussle mother-daughter team who are guarding their Miss Teenage Hairspray title. Link Larkin is trying to charm the socks off girls by giving his signature wink and seeing catfights between the entire crew against Amber von Tussle is deservingly funny, like dropping her on the ground or smacking her face. Ouch. Seeing James Marsden sing is kinda weird cos he seems so masculine most of the time and watching John Travolta and Christopher Walken flirting with and exchanging gooey eyes with each other can be quite disturbing.

If you like to sing and dance, use saliva to keep stray hair from your pretty face (guys) or like high hair on your head (girls), Hairspray is your movie!
