Give Us Your Opinion of This Movie!

My Review:

My absolutely FAVORITE movie of the year so far!  Wow!  I couldn’t stop smiling all through it –  I was tapping my toes, I wanted to get up in the aisles and dance!!!  This is my kind of movie.  I haven’t seen the stage version, or the 1988 original film by John Waters, so I can’t compare this new film to its predecessors, but I believe this Hairspray is destined to be a classic – I absolutely LOVE it!

I had my doubts about John Travolta in the role of Edna Turnblatt, but he is absolutely precious!  And Nikki Blonsky couldn’t be better.  Zac Efron, who made a name for himself in High School Musical, is just darling.  Michelle Pfeiffer is a hoot.  James Marsden has the moves, and a GREAT voice – who’d have known?  He’s so hot – always my favorite in the X-Men movies, this guy has talent!  And Queen Latifah – LOVE her, as always, she’s just awesome.  Everyone is just really good.  The music is wonderful, the choreography is fantastic.  I hope to see this movie have lots and lots of nominations come awards time, because it deserves it.  The best part, you leave the theatre humming and smiling – and SO glad you had the experience.  Go see Hairspray!
