Golden Glober nominee Nikki Blonsky of 'Hairspray' fame stars as overweight high school senior Maggie Baker who knows she'll never be as pretty, skinny or wealthy as the popular girls. But when a cruel prank nominates her for election as Homecoming Queen, Maggie decides to go ahead with her campaign against the advice of the school administration, her widowed mom, and the mean girls who will do anything to keep Maggie feeling like a loser. Based on a true story.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well made, surprisingly in-depth February 18, 2009
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 November 5, 2008
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 May 13, 2011
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Reinforces every unjust stereotype about the overweight February 9, 2010
Format:DVD
It is ironic that, though the mockery, pain, and condescension which the 'fat girl' here has to endure are utterly true, there are stereotypes reinforced which could lead to more of the same. One might think that those unaware of the abuse to which an overweight teenager can be exposed could develop some understanding from the presentation, but indeed viewers (who have not struggled with the problem) could think their criticism and misjudgement was justified and even helpful. Nikki is the stuff of prejudice - the girl with the stash of junk food under her bed, who orders and eats a whole pizza while tossing the 'healthy' meal into the rubbish bin, and so forth. As well, though there is a suggestion that her (thin) mother is nagging, judgemental and controlling, most of the words which Nikki 'hears' are in imagination - one could receive the impression that her 'caring' mother is only concerned that the girl not meet an early death from diabetes (as did her father), since the mockery of her appearance is a daydream.

Decades ago, I was an overweight teenager (though nowhere near the size of our heroine). I'd love to see a film which shows what many of us really experienced - constant struggles to lose weight, mockery of our weight loss efforts, assumptions that we were stashing junk food or eating sweets when we were not, being unable to be in the company of many people without instant criticism and condescending 'advice.' Such a film would need to include what it is actually like to have a nagging mother - I can remember my own poking me with 'is that all you?!', dressing me in dowdy dark clothes so I looked like a frumpy woman of 60, crying about her misfortune in having the fat daughter no matter how many awards I won for arts or academics.
