Hairspray is a musical turned into film about a highschool plumb teenager who faces the obstacles of discrimination against black and over bias for beautiful tall, white races to get into the hip TV show for teens.
Nicky Blonsky is a natural - her smile, her dyanamism, her voice. She is definitely the right choice for the character of Tracy. Although the casting director made an excellent job in choosing all the actors and actresses led by John Travolta and Michelle Pfiefer. The songs are all excellent. The film in general is an excellently crafted film.
Content-wise, this film is totally admirable. Its seamless screenplay effectively brings the message across. While it tackles the serious issue of discrimination, it brings it to an inspiring conclusion that is favorable to the audience.
