Just as good as 80s version

I love the 80's version of this film - which rocked Riki Lake to talk show fame and had a cameo from one of my all time heros - Debbie Harry. This Hairspray is just as good. Travolta, of course, delivers a well crafted performance and Queen Latifa prooves again she can actually act. The character of Tracy the exhuberant, optimistic and fat girls can do anything lead role is superbly reprised. Special mention must go to Christopher Walkin - if you don't know his dancing ability You Tube him after to see him do his thing in a Fat Boy Slim video. Hairspray: Go see. Its a happy movie.
