Co-love and Betty recommmmmend: Hairspray


Betty and Co-love just finished watching the 1988 version of Hairspray after having seen the 2007 version on the big screen. We enjoyed the more outrageous antics and hair of the original, as well as the vintage music. However, we still appreciate the wonderful and more profesional performances of the new one, including John Travolta, Zac Efron, and Michelle Pfeiffer who updated 3 roles that were originally played by non-actors. Both versions are worth seeing to compare. If you like wacky and silly, we recommend the first. But, if you like slick and Disney-ful, the second one is better.

I haven't seen the second, but...this post is heresy. "Non-actors"; I am sorry but I would take Divine over John Travolta any day. And you guys spelled "profesional" wrong. Enough said. Cute picture, though.

I'm glad you guys can at least agree on the photo, even though the camera shadow makes me look like Homer Simpson a little bit.

I think that first commentator is a co-founder of this site...
