HAIRSPRAY (1988) - Watched all of it tonight on TCM.  I haven't looked at it in decades.  I do listen to the soundtrack - which are all old forgotten records that JOHN WATERS dusted off and had all these people dance to... the original movie is NOT the Broadway musical (which I saw and enjoyed!) but the same story.  And it is NOT that JOHN REVOLTS YA freak show movie.  The original has a great soundtrack...  Ridiculous constructs like a comic book and what a joyous message of acceptance!  The movie is a box of candy.

Can't say I am a big John Waters fan. Intentional camp never worked for me.

i love the film i even met him in (1995) he was a nice guy i think one of the funniest things he ever said about hairspray was he accidently made a family film he didn't know how that happened and that it was never going to happen again

It's a fantasy, kitschy, but nostalgic and fond and politically correct.  Unlike his previous films, this film is naive.  One of the funniest bits was JOHN WATERS as the "psychiatrist".

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
