It's Baltimore, 1962, and a rebellious "pleasantly plump" teenager with the biggest bouffant on the block, Tracy (Daytime Emmy Award-nominee Ricki Lake - "Serial Mom," TV's "The Ricki Lake Show") attempts to be one of the featured stars on a popular dance show and win the coveted "Miss Auto Show" crown as she fights against racial discrimination in this film written and directed by John Waters ("Cry Baby," "Serial Mom") in an ode to the dance craze of the 60's. Featuring Divine ("Polyester," "Pink Flamingos") in his/her last gender-bending role as Tracy's mother. Also starring Emmy-nominee Sonny Bono ("The Sonny and Cher Comedy hour"), Emmy-nominee Jerry Stiller ("Zoolander," TV's "Seinfeld"), and Deborah Harry of the legendary rock band Blondie.]]>

Great movie. Better than the John Travolta version. The music is great. I adore John Waters work and his point of view. And yes, he does have one.Published 16 days ago by Kevin J. Doherty
