The last movie I saw in a theater was “Happy Feet,” until tonight, when I saw Hairspray. I haven’t seen the musical, but I loved the original ’80s movie. I must admit when I heard they were doing a new one, I was not amused. I thought the first one was perfect. But then, the more I saw the clips on TV, the more I knew I would need to go see it. Because every single time I watched one, I found myself smiling. And tonight, for just over 100 minutes, I smiled. A big ol’ can of Ultra Clutch is, so far, the best treatment I’ve received for WTF. I had moments of being able to ignore the &^%&* symptoms, thanks to this most delightful movie. If you’re droopy and need a pick-me-up, or if your ‘do is a little flat, do go see it. Watch for John Waters and Ricki Lake, too. I was so tickled that they weren’t left out
Oh, and the title here is a line by Penny Pingleton in the movie. There are quite a few endearing lines. And did I mention there’s Christoper Walken? I probably should’ve said that first. Go see it!
