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.
This is one of John Waters lighter films. This is in my oppion better than the musical remake of the movie. Divine is better than John Trovolta. This is very enjoyable to watch it is not out there like other john waters movies. I really recommend it for a good laugh and a good story and a great cast
