Fabulous Movie, Odd Casting
I saw Hairspray on Broadway, so I guess I had big expectations. While
the movie was energetic and happy, sticking somewhat close to the
on-stage version, the casting of John Travolta as Edna was wrong,
wrong, wrong! He looked nothing like the masculine, haggard woman Edna
was supposed to be. Remember Divine, Harvey Firestein, Bruce Vilanch...
all embodied Edna. Travolta looked just like an ordinary fat woman...
and that accent he was trying for. What was that? Amanda Bynes looked
way too cute for the entire movie to be Tracy's ugly duckling friend.
She didn't shine in her big break out at the end because she didn't'
look much different. That said... the movie was still fabulous. The
music, the dancing, the singing. All wonderful. Nikki Blonsky has a set
of pipes on her and Queen Latifah was great as usual. While some songs
from the musical were cut, some new ones were added. "Ladies Choice"
sung by Zac Efron was a great addition. Also kudos for the John Waters
and Ricki Lake cameos, too!.
abinversie watch Warlock movie

samanthasammy watch Tokyo! movie
Most of the casting in this movie is spot on, but I just can't stand John Travolta as Edna Turnblad. He smirks and minces through the whole thing, and changes his voice to try to sound more like a woman. And I like John Travolta in most things. His performance cannot measure up to the standard set by Divine in the original film, or Harvery Fierstein in the Broadway musical. Zac Efron was so good as Link, and Queen Latifah kills it as usual as Motormouth... but I just can't bring myself to watch the movie again. I'd have to miss half the movie fast forwarding through all the John Travolta parts!.
WHAT THE FUCK WAS DAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!??????????????/.
I saw this film when it was reeased in the cinema and don't think me and my friends enjoyed a film that we all liked as we normally disagree. However i think that the storyline along with songs and John Travolta as a woman make it a great film to watch with friends or family. .
great movie fun and entertaining..
i really loved the movie.
Fun Fun Fun!
I have to say that i loved this film, its so good and funny and i
really didn't expect to like it this much. Everyone played their
characters extremely well, you couldn't ask for more. The set and
costumes were also amazing, i just love everything about this film. Zac
Efron is especially hot and is the perfect choice for Link. I love the
old one but i have to say that this is miles better. I found myself
just smiling all the way through it and i couldn't stop, i just wanted
to get up and dance, even my boyfriend loved it and he wants to go
again (which we will be doing.) Very enjoyable and worth seeing! Best
movie all year!.
