Hairspray Movie Online
Hairspray is a 2007 American musical romantic comedy film based on the 2002 Broadway musical of the same name, which in turn was based on John Waters's 1988 comedy film of the same name. Set in 1962 Baltimore, Maryland, the film follows the "pleasantly plump" teenager Tracy Turnblad as she pursues stardom as a dancer on a local TV show and rallies against racial segregation. Adapted from both Waters' 1988 script and Thomas Meehan and Mark O'Donnell's book for the stage musical by screenwriter Leslie Dixon, the 2007 film version of Hairspray is directed and choreographed by Adam Shankman. Hairspray features songs from the Broadway musical written by Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman, as well as four new Shaiman/Wittman compositions not present in the original Broadway version. Tracy Turnblad (Nikki Blonsky) is an overweight high school student living in Baltimore, Maryland, where she attends school ("Good Morning Baltimore"). After school, Tracy and her best friend Penny Pingleton (Amanda Bynes) watch the The Corny Collins Show, a local teen dance television show, hosted by Corny Collins ("The Nicest Kids in Town"). The teenagers featured on the show attend Tracy and Penny's school, among them Amber von Tussle (Brittany Snow) and her boyfriend Link Larkin (Zac Efron), the lead male dancer. Amber’s mother, Velma (Michelle Pfeiffer), manages WYZT, the show's broadcast station, and makes sure Amber is prominently featured. Corny Collins and the dancers on the show are white, and Velma only allows African-American kids on the show once a month on "Negro Day", hosted by R&B disc jockey Motormouth Maybelle (Queen Latifah).
