11 Movies You'll Love on Valentines Days: #6

#6 Hairspray: The Valentines Day movie for people who love to dance...

Plot: The same as the 2007 remake except better! Watch as Tracy Turnblad, a pleasantly plump teenager played by Ricki Lake, engages in 60's style pop dancing, becomes a small town TV star, meets a hottie named Link and becomes a civil rights activist all in one movie! Oh and it's NOT a musical.

Why you'll love it: This film is a John Waters classic. (A writer/director I hold in high esteem) It's his dance movie as he calls it and it sure does have dancing in it. You'll learn 60's classics like the Madison without even trying and this movie will bring back the wonders and magic of the mash potato into your eyes for sure. Oh and did I mention that it's better then the remake...because it is.

Prepare for: The urge to tease your hair and break out the vintage dresses for a night out with a real swinger. Don't fight it, the bigger the better.


  1. Love, Love, Love!
