Arguably shockmeister John Waters best film, Hairspray comes to DVD with a widescreen transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1. English soundtracks are rendered in both Dolby Digital 5.1 and Dolby Digital Surround. There are no subtitles, but the 5.1 soundtrack is closed-captioned. Supplemental materials include an entertaining commentary track featuring Waters and star Ricki Lake, and the original theatrical trailer. This is a strong release from New Line Home Entertainment that will please both Waters' ardent fans as well as those unfamiliar with his more grotesque offerings.

If you are looking for any of the songs that were in the Broadway musical, you won't find them here. Other than that, the story line is the same and it's a fair watch.

I've seen this movie Its got Riki Lake in it Ok so People like the new movie of Hairspray but trust this one is better I mean come on if your gonna do a remake of a movie you know that the first one is the best Cause on the second one John Travolta dressed up as a woman now that's stupied The original Hairspray from 1988 is much better and it has Rikii Lake who also played on the movie Crybaby So this movie is better than the new one Much better

This movie has to be one of the best movies ever! Ricki Lake does a really good job, unlike some of her movies and plays a great character. Over all I would say if you are in to comedys and enjoy musicals I highly recommand this movie!

I buying this movie because i saw it at a friends house and loved it. I'm watching it before the new one comes out to really get into the music and it really makes u want to dance!

I have loved this movie since the first time I saw it and while the new one is good in its own right it can not match the love I have for the original just remebering the first time I watched it and knowing now that my children are entering a world were they can love whoever they want no matter what they look like is so inspiring.

Although I will never rate this version of "Hairspray" higher than the Riki Lake version I feel as though it is definitely almost as funny. The best part is that while it does not change the overall plot of the movie the writers of the script changes just enough to not make the viewer feel as though they are just not watching an exact duplicate of the first movie. I strongly reccommend watching this movie.

This is a great movie! I just saw it 2 weeks ago and I have been watching it every day. And the dancing is awesome. My favorites are the bug, the madison time, and shake a tail feather. And I really want 2 c the play and the new movie that's coming out. I don't kno about u, but I feel like dancin'!

John Waters shows off more of his weirdness in this movie about a dancing show during the civil rights movement. It's alright, nothing special, and nowhere near as good as the praise it gets. And to the less than intelligent person who complained about the Broadway songs not being in the movie...hahahahhaahahha, the broadway play was BASED on this movie, fyi.

I love this movie and the music in it. It makes me want to get up and dance! This was one of my favorite movies when I was a child. This is a fun movie for both kids and adults alike! I highly recommend it.
