Hairspray is directed by Adam Shankman, and it stars Nikki Blonsky, John Travolta, Michelle Pfeiffer, Christopher Walken, and Amanda Bynes in a musical comedy about a high school student in 1962 that wants to be a TV star in a dance show called The Corny Collins Show, but the manager of the show would not let her in because she is against big people for being in TV shows. It's been almost a decade since this movie was out in theaters, and I haven't seen it for a while, so I wanted to watch it again, even though I haven't seen the original yet. So with this, it's a really great film. The acting is pretty good which I'm surprised I haven't seen much of Nikki Blonsky in more films, and it's honestly really strange for John Travolta to be the main character's mother, and I thought he did fine, even though the singing is quite questionable in some moments. The songs are memorable, and the choreography is pretty fun to watch which the director did a good job of doing so. The subject matters that we're in the film were pretty interesting to see in a kids film, and it has a great balance and it done in a smart way that kids will understand due to a tight script from Leslie Dixon. The villain is a bit of fun from Michelle Pfeiffer just being enjoyably over the top. If there's one legitimate issue that I do have with the film, is that the last song in the end lasted a bit too long for me, and was stretched out for me. Those are the only issues as I had a lot of fun with Hairspray, more then I remember of it, and with the 2016 Academy Award Best Picture route coming to a close, the next film will definitely be the last one, which with this being a musical, you know what it might be.
