Guess what? Hairspray has officially passed $100 million at the box office. This is a real achievement for a musical (only five have ever done it). Not only that, only three musicals (Grease, Chicago, and The Rocky Horror Picture Show) have ever made more money. And the movie is really fun and warmhearted; the music is great. (The more I listen to the soundtrack, the more I appreciate Queen Latifah’s performance especially.)
But you know what the really great news is? According to this list of movies featuring fat suits (I am amazed this list exists, by the way), Hairspray has made more money than Norbit. Now if that doesn’t put the “good” in “feel-good Friday,” I don’t know what will!
