Film Review: HAIRSPRAY (2007)

Ebullient musical version of John Waters’ transgressive classic about a chubby teen (Blonsky) whose joie de vivre topples racial barriers, aka DIRTY DANCING goes Baltimore. Travolta plays Mom (!); Walken play Dad; Efron plays the love object. Pfeiffer has great fun as the skinny blonde nemesis, & Walters gets his Hitchcock moment. More on HAIRSPRAY.
