Based on the Broadway musical (which was based on the 1988 film by John Waters), the 2007 film adaptation of HAIRSPRAY finds the story coming full circle back to the silver screen. Driven by the star power of Queen Latifah, Michelle Pfeiffer, and John Travolta (who steals the show with his dressed-in-drag performance as the protagonist's mother), the film features all the upbeat, foot-stomping songs that made the Broadway production such a hit, including "Good Morning Baltimore," "(The Legend of) Miss Baltimore Crabs," and "Big, Blonde, and Beautiful."
Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman, the authors of the original show, wrote three new songs for the film: "New Girl in Town," "Come So Far," and the single-worthy "Ladies' Choice," and these tunes blend (in quality and in character) with the originals. Likewise, songs from the original Broadway production that do not appear in the film, including "Cooties" and "Mama, I'm a Big Girl Now" appear here in new versions. Fans may quibble over the relative merits of the stage version verses the screen, but both should enjoy these energetic performances of HAIRSPRAY's familiar songs.

Thank you. Your feedback will help us create the best experience for our customers.
I bought this for my neice for Christmas and never actually watched the whole thing but the beginning looked very funny. My neice is 17, not sure in the suitability for all ages, i don't have kids.
Shipping was very quick and this was a little cheaper then if I would have bought it in the stores and i didn't have to fight through any crowds.
The movie is awesome and those that enjoyed it will be thrilled by the soundtrack. A wide variety of talent. The quality is awesome. The price is better than other websites I searched. And overstock is reliable.
