Hairspray or Hairspray

Last night I watched the new remake of Hairspray. It got me thinking... Which one do I like better??
The original Hairspray, written and directed by John Waters, was made in 1988, and wasn't a musical. It starred Ricki Lake as Tracey. Some people might not know this but the Hairspray made in 2007, is actually based on "Hairspray" the Broadway musical and not John Waters original movie. The Broadway musical is actually based on John Waters Hairspray, and all the musical numbers were added.
After much consideration, I actually enjoyed John Waters Hairspray. I'm a sucker for originals. But the most recent Hairspray does have it's good bits... Zac Efron... John Travolta is drag... and a cast of Hollywood actors that actually perform the singing and dancing themselves.

HAHA look what my blogs are reduced too. HAHA nevermind... can you say GEEK!!??
