Hairspray Movie Review by Movie Addict (7/1/2008)

This was a thoroughly enjoyable movie and the casting selection was excellent.

Hairspray Movie Review by gina (9/9/2007)

I know a little something about hairspray. Saw the original movie—saw the Broadway play—wouldn't be caught dead outside with using the product. As an "expert," I must disagree with the rave reviews this film has received.
It's not that it isn't lighthearted, fun, and entertaining—it is. But I think that if a film is a...
