I admit I was wary when news came down about Hairspray 2, a sequel to the 2007 screen adaptation of the stage adaptation of John Waters' 1988 cult classic movie. All versions were fun escapes and modern fairytales, and it seemed like going for another outing would just be tempting fate. It would be like going out in the rain once too often with your new bouffant 'do... Sooner or later, the hairspray that held the whole thing together would dissolve and leave you with a flat, tangled mess. My apprehension faded a little, though, upon learning of Waters' plans for the sequel. Read on for the skinny.
