1.0 out of 5 stars Rubbish 8 Jan 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
It wasn't paticularly funny or heartwarming. The lead character was annoying and the story tired. I thought I might enjoy this film being of the larger persuasion, and this being a true story about a girl with a weight problem achieving the envied status of prom queen, but it was a waste of £3. I do not recomend wasting your money.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well made, surprisingly in-depth 18 Feb 2009
By S. Morales - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Nikki Blonsky plays a teenage girl trying to become homecoming queen despite the fact that she isn't a "model" figure. She's overweight, has a overprotected mother who while having genuine care for her daughter's health, still comes off as controlling and discriminatory with her approach.
The fat-acceptance movement in America has been looking for something that best expresses the viewpoint of overlooking stereotypes, and I would say that they probably aren't going to find a better outlet or voice in their argument than this movie. Nikki plays a fat girl, but a REAL one, and yes, she DOES have a somewhat eating/snacking problem that has caused a lot of her weight, but she also does have friends who love her, does hold love for herself despite her flaws, and isn't a princess the despite the fact that she's the "underdog." The movie does portray her mistakes she makes with her friends and goes to show that an underdog, fat or not, does make the same mistakes anyone else does and is really no different from anyone else.
It's a cute and warm movie that people as a whole will geniunely like.

5.0 out of 5 stars Centenary College of Louisiana & Nikki Blonsky 5 Nov 2008
By Christy J. Wrenn - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
This is A great movie for the whole family to watch. Anne Potts does a great job playing an overworked, too busy, neglectful mom who pushes her teenage daughter to take care of her younger brother. Nikki Blonsky of the movie "Hairspray" is the overweight, used, teen daughter who has no social life who decides to run for prom queen with the help of her friends. No thanks to her "bad girl" enemies in school, has more difficulties than any teenager should have to put up with. However, this wonderfully talented young woman does prevail and does wear the crown of queen for her school.

4.0 out of 5 stars Long live the Queen! A pleasant surprise 13 May 2011
By MortensOrchid - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I picked this DVD up by mistake, as I was reaching for something else on the library DVD shelf. When I brought it home I decided to watch it anyway, and it was a rather pleasant surprise. The commentary this movie made was rather hard to watch, sad to see, and difficult to accept here in society.

Nikki Blonsky of 'Hairspray' fame stars as overweight high school senior Maggie Baker who was nominated for homecoming queen by the mean girls cliche at her high school. Instead of bowing out and hiding in the corner, Maggie decides to lead the charge and become kind of a champion of the people. She appeals to the outcast (the nerds, freaks, etc. - that is, everyone who is not directly part of or victimized by the mean girls cliche) set and, like the title and movie poster front suggest, wins the crown. We are routing for the underdog, seeing what happens when all of us who felt like outcasts rise up and become victorious over the powers that be.

However, look past the obvious plot of the story and you will see things that you may or may not have ever experienced. Maggie is haunted by the voice of her insecurities, that horrible demon that lingers over everything you do and say, who just happens to be in the form of her glamorous, thin mother (Annie Potts). You see her stuffing her face with ice cream and candy and garbage, eating her feelings, trying to hide herself in food. We have all been there at some point or another, but when something happens that makes you eat and eat and eat until it hurts. Soon your find yourself 45 lbs heavier than you used to be, and people are telling you the same thing as Maggie's mom is "Loose some weight and you'll be happy." Unfortunately, that really is the only alternative. The world is not going to change, YOU have to change. Maggie's weight did not budge through this movie, but she did learn to be a better person and to transform, because she hit rock bottom several times through this movie. I would have liked to have seen what happened to Maggie after the homecoming events were over, let alone what happened to the person this story was based on.

Why not 5 stars? The movie in general has a very adolescent tone about it. Understandable as it is a movie about adolescents, but this could have had a more mature nature about it. It is just as much an adult based movie as it is based on our teenage years.
