The good news is that I can see HAIRSPRAY in the theaters again. The bad news is that John Travolta looks terrible in drag. they couldn't do any sfx to fix his hugungus man-hands?! They didn't want to max out the make-up to? He just looks like a mannish mom, not the over the top drag queen that Divine & Harvey Firestein played. Mannish moms are not as fun as queens.
I hope Travolta doesn't ruin it. But the cast looks good, with Christopher Walken playing the dad and Queen Latifah as Motormouth Maybelle. Sadly, USA Today is the only one with the sense to use this amazing photo in their article. everyone else chose to show him looking "distinguished." Pssht! Let's not forget he's a scientologist.
