      I watched the movie Hairspray this evening. This was the 2007 updated version. I have to admit that I did not really like the original movie. I did not expect too much from this version.

      Hairspray is a musical/ comedy.

      I have to say though in my opinion, that the cast


      made this version a bit more bearable. There were quite a few recognizable faces in this movie. Some wonderful singing voices. Queen Latifa as Maybelle was excellent, she has a wonderful voice.

      The setting of the movie is a dance show in the 1960’s, the integration of the dancers is a point ...


      • of the movie.

        Nikki Blonsky who played Tracy is an unknown actress. She did an okay job in the role.

        Other faces I recognized were Zac Efron, Michelle Pfeiffer, Amanda Bynes, Christophe Walken and John Travolta. Ricki Lake, who played Tracy in the 1980’s movie makes a cameo appearance.

        Travolta’s portrayal was very, very

        funny. He was definitely a character I did not expect, of course he is an excellent dancer in any role.

        I was interested to see Travolta working with Pfeiffer I had wanted to see them collaborate for years.

        The movie was campy, but was enjoyable as long as you don’t expect too much from it.
