After yesterday’s post, featuring Nikki Blonsky’s fashion choices, I decided I must go and watch Hairspray. I had been meaning to watch the movie for a while now, but you know how it is, sometimes life just gets in the way.
Well I’m glad I put life to the side for one night as Hairspray turned out to be a fantastic, entertaining and ego boosting movie! I love musicals in general, but this one in particular is colorful, fun and makes you feel like standing up and dancing along to the songs all througout the movie. Visually it is a pleasure to watch, with great dancing and beautifully made costumes.
I loved Queen Latifah’s performance in this movie, she looks absolutely fabulous in every outfit, and makes you feel proud to be plus size when she’s performing the song ‘Big, Blonde and Beautiful’! You’ll be constantly amazed by John Travolta’s performance (and appearance), and Christopher Walken is just a sweethear as Wilbur. Nikki Blonsky totally rocks the show!
I encourage everyone, especially plus size women, to watch Hairspray. It is the ultimate feel good movie which you should go watch right away!
