Have you ever like the remake more than you did the original? The majority of the time the answer has been yes. In this case, the answer is a huge no! I never was a fan of the original 1988 "Hairspray", So when the remake was announced, based on the Broadway musical, I went in with a bias against the film. I am glad to report that I was wrong about that.
The films cast pulls this film off so that there is not a bad acting role in the film.
Now please realize if you see this in a Korean theater, you will be the only one catching allot of the jokes.
What I really like was Tracy Turnblad family with John Travolta, filling in for the late great Divines role, and Christopher Walken portraying her father, seeing John and Chris act as a married couple was hilarious.
Please give it a look when it arrives in Korea.
