Hairspray started as a movie comedy about a chubby girl in the 1960s who loved dancing and had a strong sense of social justice. Then it became a Broadway musical, and finally came this movie version of the musical - which got headlines because John Travolta stars as the heroine's mother (that's right, her mother!). In fact, he does a fine job, as do the rest of the cast in a film that has lots of good songs and makes its political points in the sweetest possible way.
