Perfect for preteens and adults

Brilliant film on many levels. Our kids (9 and 6) loved the singing and dancing and my wife and I thought the broader themes were also terrific. We've seen it about 6 times! Exceptionally well done.

Not appropriate for little girls lots of sex related issues

I was very disappointed with the movie, I was in shock when I watched this with my 9 year old. First starts out that they need a new dancer becuase she needs 9 months OFF!! So shes pregnanent how absurd, Hollywood has us parents that our kids need to be exposed to sex at a young age. Hollywood needs to get their you no what out of their BUMS!!!!! I would not reccomend this to any child under 14 period!!!!!!!!

Entertainment for the older kid crowd

Hairspray is a fun movie to watch, but be warned, it's not for younger kids. Lots of sexual innuendos and body language. I would not recommend it to children under 13. That being said, you know your own children. If you choose to let them watch it, be prepared to discuss it!

The first, the best!

The new Hairspray has nothing on this John Waters classic - something great for practically the whole family.
