Rent Hairspray on DVD


1988 Rated PG 1hr 32m

Ample teen Tracy Turnblad (Ricki Lake) wants nothing more than to be on the hip local TV dance program, "The Corny Collins Show" -- and when her dream comes true, her lively moves and bubbly personality meet with unexpected popularity. But after witnessing firsthand the terrible state of race relations in 1960s Baltimore, Turnblad becomes an outspoken advocate for desegregation. John Waters's comedy inspired the Broadway musical of the same name.
