For anyone who wanted something bigger, there comes a time to break all the rules.

Tracy Turnblad, an overweight teenager with all the right moves, is obsessed with the Corny Collins Show. Every day after school, she and her best friend Penny run home to watch the show and drool over the hot Link Larkin, much to Tracy's mother Edna's dismay. After one of the stars of the show leaves, Corny Collins holds auditions to see who will be the next person on the Corny Collins show. With all of the help of her friend Seaweed, Tracy makes it on the show, angering the evil dance queen Amber Von Tussle and her mother Velma. Tracy then decides that it's not fair that the black kids can only dance on the Corny Collins Show once a month, and with the help of Seaweed, Link, Penny, Motormouth Maybelle, her father and Edna, she's going to integrate the show.....without denting her 'do!

My 7 year old daughter loved this movie and watched it over again a few times, before we went to see the live show. Very good.

Enjoyable and full of fun. Light and bright with a good music score.

Good family movie, don't think the teens will enjoy it as much though!

This was just FUN to watch. John Travolta is the most "refreshing" female face on the screen!! Really enjoyed this movie. Loved Christopher Walken in his role as the dad.

The first song in this movie nearly tipped me over the edge but after that it settled down a little and was pretty enjoyable. Loved John Travolta.
