I just saw this movie last night and was so totally blown away by the cast, the singing and just everything about the film. I am a fan of the original and I cannot even begin to tell you how great they were able to remake this one. Not to take away from the original cast (Divine, Ricki Lake, Deborah Harry), but this new cast really did this film justice. For those of you who loev the original and really enjoyed Divine as Edna Turnblad, just know that John Travolta really did an amazing job as the character. He was so funny. At times a bit creepy, but I think Divine did the same in the role. A must see film for those who loved the original. The soundtrack was fabulous! Oh yeah and John Waters makes an appearnace in the film as a flasher and Ricki Lake also makes an appearance as an agent. Awesome! I forgot to add Jerry Stiller as the dress shop owner.
