I did not have a particularly good time at Hairspray, and found it very hard not to boo when Travolta was onscreen.
However, the girl in the pre-show hair contest who squealed—rightly—"It should be me!" stole my heart.
Someone has yet to explain why this movie needed to be re-made at all.
No Debbie Harry?
No Ricki Lake?
And most importantly...
No Mink Stole?
Yeah, I don't get it -- a movie from a play from a movie? And Travolta is such a huge step down. "There's nothing gay in this movie" -- is he an idiot?
Yes, he is an idiot.
Though his idiocy is not what is speaking. His closet door is screaming those words. He obviously went all out to explain to the world that the movie and his role are not gay...when they obviously are. He's having trouble finding the keys to the closet, and in his frustration he's continuing what many of us gays once did: totally flippin' out at the idea that people think, er, know he's gay.
i cannot understand why anyone wants to see this movie.
travolta's role is not JUST gay - its META-GAY.
"There is nothing gay in this movie... I'm not playing a gay man."
- John Travolta
Wow. Is there a special kind of complete self denial I'm previously unaware of? Holy crap!
Newsflash, John: That character is about as gay as gay can get. Sorry to burst your bubble. Carry on.
Oh, and I totally agree with Original Andrew @2. There was absolutely no compelling reason to remake this movie, and no possibility that this remake could in any way be an improvement over the original.
When they do a pointless cheesy remake of Pink Flamingos, I wonder what star will do the singing butthole scene?
Bruce Willis is the biggest butthole in the universe, plus he has singing experience.
I want to watch Mel Gibson fuck the angry chicken. Drew Carey can eat the dogshit.
he's in a fat suit?!
Fnarf....excellent casting choices! If only......
