I haven't seen it yet and wonder if its worth paying a theatre ticket. What's the pro's and con's of the movie.

Its really good!! Its really fun, and something you would get up and start singing and dancing along too!!! Also (Zac is really cute in this movie!!! I'm not really a huge fan of Zac Efron, but...in this movie, he looked really cute!) But,....other than that, its really fun and you will enjoy it!!! Well, I went with my family, and the three of us, (mom, my evil twin, and I) LOVED IT!! But my dad, wasn't so thrilled about it. My mom said it was a chick flick. And some one even asked us is it good? And me and mom told them, I just want to warn you, your son probably wont like it. And after the movie we met up with them again, and their 14 year old son was like, "That was not that good." And their daughter who was 16 was singing the songs. (very off key..but..lol) You might want to take a few of your girl friends with you, you might enjoy it more by yourselves.

Have fun!!!

I loved it! I went to see it twice (with dance friends and my school friends). I enjoyed the music (beware: it might be stuck in your head for a day at least), the actors, and the dancing. It was the first time I liked Zac Efron (playing Link, the Elvis-type charactor), and Nikki Blonsky was a perfect Tracy. It's a very colorful, "feel-good" movie; I think I smiled the whole time.

I haven't seen it either, (my won't let me because the main character plays a lady or something like that, and is really a man, she says it doesn't teach good values, although I don't see how) but I want to! From what my co-workers have said, its really good! If I could I would definetly go out and pay full price to see it, not to mention how CUTE Zac Effron is!

Hairspray is the best film I've seen for a LONG time. Anyone who hates musicals, like my boyfriend, will hate it, but it's just SO fabulous!

I'm also not a big fan of Zac Efron, but I agree he was cute in Hairspray. It's just so feel-good and uplifting... you can't help but smile all the way through it.

I'm listening to the soundtrack right now (the only one I've felt compelled to buy in a very long time!).

I thought that it was amazing, and definitely worth it! I usually can't stand musicals, I can't even deal with Grease, but I loved it. The songs are all so catchy, and I really wanted to join the characters in dancing, but my friends restrained me. And it must be said that it helped that Zac Efron = droolworthy.

GAH.
HATED IT.
Right from the beginning you knew how it was going to end, whole of it was really quite obvious, and the songs went on a bit. About 3 stars. Sorry to be a bummer x

The movie was cute. I saw the touring version of the Broadway musical, and it was cute, too. Not great, but cute. Still, the original movie (with Ricki Lake) is one of my favorites, and I still like it best (although it's not a musical). I just saw legally blonde on MTV, and I actually liked it better than Hairspray.

I saw the tour and loved it. I am always hesitant in seeing the movie because you are tainted by the original one you saw. I want to see it, anyway. I am glad that you liked it.

I went to see it on Sunday at the Kids Club - we paid for the kids and two adults got in free - so a bargain.

But it was well worth it, I thought it was a great film, I loved the music although didn't know the songs it didn't make any difference. The actors were all great and I now know why everyone loves Zac Efron - even I do now - what a hunk !!! And he's young enough to be my son.

My husband kept saying "not another song" but he did seem to enjoy it and at the end said it was good, my nine year old daughter loved it and my six year old son played his gameboy through the last 20 minutes - slightly too long for him but we couldn't get a babysitter and we needed his place to get my husband in free ! (Cheapskates).

I would say it's a "must see" film and santa might be getting the DVD for my daughter this year!

Love Debbie x x x

i actaully hated hairspray. i love the 1980's version. to me the new Hairspray was cute but it put too much empasice (spelling>?) on the relationships, where as the origional was all about the discrimination and racism.
but thast just my opinion. the songs were great and so was the dancing but the way they arragned the scenes and put the emphasis on the relationships wasnt my thing.

My personal view of Hairspray is that its awesome!!!!! If you like musicals, romance and happy endings you should really see it! The songs were amazing [well I really liked them] and Zac Efron looked sooooo hot as Link Larkin! Its a really good movie & I was given it for xmas on dvd. So yey hairspray!!
