More Info:
  • Jack Mathews

    A great big sloppy kiss of entertainment for audiences weary of explosions, CGI effects and sequels, sequels, sequels.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    The best and most entertaining movie adaptation of a stage musical so far this century - and yes, I’m including the Oscar-winning "Chicago."

    New York Post Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    Movie magic.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Michael Sragow

    In its entirety, Hairspray has the funny tilt that only a director-choreographer like Shankman can give to a movie.

    Baltimore Sun Full Review
  • Albert Williams

    With its wisecracking screenplay, period-perfect pop score, and Shankman's splashy choreography, this may be the funniest, dancingest screen musical since "Singin' in the Rain."

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    A feel-good musical that, for a change, actually makes you feel good.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    A fizzy and delirious high-camp message-movie musical that may just turn out to be the happiest movie of the summer.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Shawn Levy

    So good at what it does that it can exhaust you: In the later going, one big number follows on the heels of another so quickly that it feels more like an opera than a regular musical.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • William Arnold

    Broad and funny, its sensibility is very campy and it's out to be loved by everyone.

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    It's hard to resist the film's exuberance.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    Just plain fun. Or maybe not so plain. There's a lot of craft and slyness lurking beneath the circa-1960s goofiness.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Carrie Rickey

    A rocking, rollicking crowd-pleaser.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    If you look fast, you'll see Waters himself in a cameo (as a flasher; what else?), proof the new film is in touch with its dyed roots.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    The film's an irresistible time capsule of that Camelot summer, blending girrrrrl power, social consciousness and faux-'60s pop with the fizz of a soda jerk whipping up a root beer float.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • Will Lawrence

    Offering plenty of body and a lot of lift, Hairspray gels kitsch styling with show-stopping tunes to mould a memorable musical.

    Empire Full Review
  • Carina Chocano

    What it offers isn't really a nostalgic look at a "more innocent time" so much as a saucy wink at a casually vicious time that is constantly being sold to us as innocent.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    The overall mood of Hairspray is so joyful, so full of unforced enthusiasm, that only the most ferocious cynic could resist it.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • David Ansen

    Shankman and his screenwriter, Leslie Dixon, prove you can make a lightweight Broadway musical into big movie fun.

    Newsweek Full Review
  • Dennis Harvey

    It's one of the best Broadway-tuner adaptations in recent years -- yes, arguably even better than those Oscar-winning ones.

    Variety Full Review
  • Steve Davis

    If ever there were a happy summer movie, it’s Hairspray. But for all its bubbly musical numbers and effervescent good humor, this film adaptation of the hit Broadway musical feels oddly lacquered -- it’s John Waters by way of Disney.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    Less polished but more fun than "Dreamgirls." Both are drag revues at heart, one funny, the other serious. I prefer the funny one.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    Delivers an even bigger sugar rush than the hit Broadway musical.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Maitland McDonagh

    For all the flash and flutter, the movie overall lacks, well, HEFT.

    TV Guide Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    John Travolta may stand out as a plus-size laundress who is hesitant, drab and retiring, but Hairspray is a consistently flashy, rousing and rambunctious movie spectacle.

    USA Today Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    The film isn't deep or thematically rich or filled with amazing characters. Instead, it's an excursion into song and dance, and works admirably on that level.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Glenn Kenny

    This Hairspray really is a lot of fun -- colorful, sassy, and brisk.

    Premiere Full Review
  • Scott Tobias

    Though the film is too slick and heavy-handed in its pro-integration sloganeering, and it's burdened by Travolta's ill-conceived star turn, its infectious high spirits and catchy tunes still pack one hell of a sugar rush.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Michael Rechtshaffen

    John Travolta takes on John Waters in Hairspray, and the result is anything but a drag in this appealingly goofy, all-singing, all-dancing screen adaptation of the Broadway musical based on the 1988 film.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Pete Vonder Haar

    Hairspray isn’t all that bad, frankly. The songs are catchy, most of the leads are engaging enough (Blonksy and Bynes especially), and there’s just enough low-key subversiveness to keep everything from getting too saccharine.

    Film Threat Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    Travolta, looking believably pretty and sweet under layers of fondant Latex, is a wholly different incarnation of Edna. And he's not bad. But that right there is the problem with Hairspray: It's all so "not bad" that it isn't nearly enough, even when Shankman and his cast work hard to send it soaring over the top. Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    Adam Shankman's movie of the Broadway Hairspray gets better as it lumbers along, but there’s something garish about its hustle--it’s like an elephant trumpeting in your face.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    This movie-turned-stage-show-turned-movie-again is intermittently tasty, if a little too frantically eager to please.

    Slate Full Review
  • Joanne Kaufman

    In the musical numbers, where by rights Mr. Travolta should shine, he's almost out-danced and certainly out-charmed by Edna's better half, Wilbur (Christopher Walken), who is one of the movie's great assets, an oasis of calm amid the twisting and shouting.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Peter Marks

    When Hairspray is twisting and shouting and swiveling its hips, you can even dare to believe a great society is waiting in the wings.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • David Denby

    The movie version of the hit Broadway musical Hairspray is perfectly pleasant--I smiled to myself all the way through it--but it’s not as exhilarating as the show.

    The New Yorker Full Review
  • Rick Groen

    What completely undermines that appearance is Shankman's chronic inability to shoot the damn scene. His camerawork is so stiff it should be interred in a pine box.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Scott Foundas

    The movie is visually flat: not pasty and garish in the Waters signature style, but merely serviceable and competent in the worst tradition of Hollywood "professionalism."
