Arya & Gendry02

Hairspray was AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Never have I been more happy to be a fan of Allison Janney. I never would have watched the movie were she not in it, and I'm so glad I did (and my sister is too). It was so much fun, so boppy and bouncy and utterly delightful. All of the casting was spot-on and wonderful.

Nikki Blonsky - delightful and a MUCH better singer than the Broadway version.
John Travolta - PERFECT!!!
Michelle Pfeiffer - Divine and in the last scene together with Travolta I whispered to my sister "Grease 1 and Grease 2!!"
Zac Efron - I remember that I did find him charming in High School Musical and he was here as well.
James Marsden - LOVE. HIM!!!!!!!
Brittany Snow - Susan from Guiding Light is all grown-up. And to think? She and Hayden Panetierre played step-siblings on GL once upon a time.
Queen Latifah - I simply bow to her (pun intended)
Allison Janney - Small role, but she sold every second.

The whole cast was wonderful. The movie was just utterly fabulous. If you want some light, fun, funny entertainment that will make you grin from ear to ear and tap your toes (and shimmy your body) ... GO SEE THIS MOVIE!!!!!!!!!!!!
