Idol Chatter

It was my favorite movie of the summer, it will probably make my top ten list of movie favorites for the entire year, and now it is the perfect choice for a feel-good movie to rent this Thanksgiving week. Yes, movies about Big Important Issues are needed, and so are movies that Make Us Think, but sometime we need a break from cynicism, doomsday prophecies and pseudo- important social and ethical controversies. That’s why “Hairspray” stands out as a joyous, hopeful celebration of life that shouldn’t be missed.And best of all, if you rent the two-disc deluxe “shake and shimmy” version, you can work off your turkey day dinner learning those really keen “Hairspray” dances.Whet your appetite with this clip, the opening song in the movie, “Good Morning, Baltimore.”
