Picture from Hairspray


In this Broadway play adaptation, charmingly chubby and sporting a dashing 1960s do, Tracy Turnbald (Nicole Blonsky) is willing to use all the Hairspray it may take to win a spot on Corny Collins' (James Marsden) televised dance show. But when she actually gets the part, she upsets reigning dance queen Amber Von Tussle (Brittany Snow) and begins throwing her weight around for the cause of racial integration.

MPAA Rating PG for language, some suggestive content and momentary teen smoking.
