Hairspray (2007)

Sorry for no posts lately. Beth needed to use the computer Thursday night, and last night we had to go to Boulder to get my car from the body shop, so we stayed and watched Hairspray at the new movie theater.

Hairspray is surprisingly good. I haven't seen the original since it was first released, so my memories are hazy, but the new movie is a totally enjoyable musical, with fun song and dance numbers and a an appealing lead in Nikki Blosnky. The John Travolta stuff almost works, and the integration storyline comes close to taking itself too seriously (during the "I Know Where I've Been" number), but all in all I recommend it!

After seeing Hairspray, Beth thinks we should watch High School Musical -- because she was impressed with Zac Efron. I've recently become impressed with some of Vanessa Hudgens's recent work, so I think I could sit thru HSM...

NOTE: Don't expect much posting this weekend, as I'll be at Nan Desu Kan for most of it... See you there!

Click on the blurred picture and you get a clear picture, I think...

How come my post regarding the NS4W pic is grayed out? Did you delete another one of my posts again?

No, just hid it. You got kind of personal there, and I didn't feel it was proper for the general public's consumption...

How should I feel about this?

Fine, I guess. You didn't say anything wrong, just a little too personal for an open forum. Maybe email would have been better...

My girlfriend agrees with you to a degree. I've deleted it anyway, so it's a moot point.

I love "Hairspray", the original one...Devine makes an awesome woman...;)
I NEED TO SEE THE NEW ONE! I am so mad no one put it online yet so I have not gotten it...I might actually have to rent it/wait for it on tv...:P
Nikki Blosnky is SO CUTE, as cute as Rikki Lake in the first one...:)
HAHA I so want to see JT as a woman, just watching the commercials crack me up horribly...:)
HSM (both of them) are SUCH GOOD MOVIES...I didn't know I would love them so much, but as soon as I saw HSM the first one, I got the soundtrack and listen to it ALLLLLL the time...
Plus the plot is so cute...:)

Thanks for the vote on HSM -- others are telling me that the movies aren't very good. I guess I'll have to see them now just to fine out for myself!
