Adam Shankman's adaptation of the stage musical Hairspray, itself an adaptation of the non-musical John Waters film of the same name, stars Nikki Blonsky as Tracy Turnblad, an overweight high-school student whose only dream is to be on a local Baltimore teen dance program. While her father (Christopher Walken) tells her to follow her dreams, her mother Edna (John Travolta in drag) reminds her that she doesn't look like the girls on that show. After impressing the show's host (James Marsden), Tracy earns a coveted spot on the program, but when she becomes a popular addition to the cast, she earns the wrath of the prettiest girl in school -- a girl whose mother (Michelle Pfeiffer) just happens to operate the local television station. Tracy's visit to detention hall opens her eyes to the racial tension on the show, as does the budding relationship between her best friend (Amanda Bynes) and an African-American boy named Seaweed (Elijah Kelley). Thus empowered, Tracy attempts to integrate the races on her favorite program. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi

Some New Trailer For Hairspray
New Review For Movie HairsprayFor a star-studded big-budget musical, Hairspray does a nice job of retaining the funky sweetness of the original.
'Hairspray': An unabashed, unapologetic movie musical that nearly jumps off the screen and challenges all of your silly hang-ups about movie musicals
Joe Baltake-Passionate Moviegoer
Bright, campy and wonderfully light, Hairspray reminds us that fun comes in all shapes and sizes. It's also one of the few 'event' movies this summer that doesn't outstay its welcome. That's worth singing about, no matter what your name is.
Paul Clinton (CNN.com)-CNN.com
It's amiable, it's bouncy, it's got a sweet unknown in the lead flanked by a cast of bankable stars and, providing as it does an amiable and bouncy and sweet escape from a summer's worth of clunky blockbusters.
Rick Groen-Globe and Mail
Hairspray is an infectious aerosol comedy with nearly every hair in place.
John Moore-Denver Post
Hairspray is one of the most enjoyable translations of a Broadway musical to the big screen ever.
Lawson Taitte-Dallas Morning News
It pays respect to the original while also carving its own image as a truly good musical.
Felix Vasquez Jr.-Cinema Crazed
In alchemy the transmuting of materials between forms distills them to their purest elements. In film, the opposite is true. The more iterations, the more muddled things get. Hairspray is good at what it does but not everything it does is good.
Much of the fun comes from director-choreographer Adam Shankman's happy acceptance of musical staples
Fernando F. Croce-CinePassion
Shankman's crassly theatrical attenuation of Hairspray only draws gay culture away from a moment of American history with which it ought to have a great deal in common
Leo Goldsmith-Reverse Shot
It falls to individual efforts by the cast to keep the eye and ear coming back for more.
S. James Wegg-JWR
Hairspray is an energetic romp, but as a social statement -- which it pretends to be -- it's cartoonish. And as a playful look back at a time and place, it's simplistic shtik. It's a mountain of whipped cream, with an occasional chocolate sprinkle.
Tony Macklin-Fayetteville Free Weekly
I will confess that Travolta totally turned me around. A mountain of a woman in his female fat suit, he commits 150% to the role.
The most refreshing and enjoyable musical of this century%u2014Hairspray.
Tim Basham-Paste Magazine
Even if the new Hairspray seems a welcome return to camp for Travolta, his mock seriousness is as frozen as ever.
Matthew Sorrento-Bright Lights Film Journal
The film works best for me when they are making fun of the racial climate of the 1960s.
Jeff Bayer-The Scorecard Review
An amazing cast sings and dances across the screen with such flair and passion its completely infectious.
Wesley Lovell-Cinema Sight
Caso tivesse 20 minutos e alguns números musicais a menos, Hairspray poderia ser uma surpresa tão divertida quanto o original (que tampouco é um clássico). Inchado como ficou, porém, é apenas um passatempo pouco memorável.
Pablo Villaca-Cinema em Cena
Like your high school's production of "Grease": A musical about sex with a chastity belt strapped to its waist.
Stephen Himes-Film Snobs
One's enjoyment of Adam Shankman's motion picture will largely depend on one's tolerance for conflict-less, feel good musicals.
Some magical balance between the cast members, the set design, the songs and director Adam Shankman makes it work.
Jeffrey M. Anderson-Combustible Celluloid
