Believability-wise, it lacks a lot. But in terms of fun, hilarious dance numbers? It goes above and beyond in that area. I mean, it's generally silly and kinda crazy too, but we can give a few nods to the spectacular dance numbers and amazing actors (especially Zac Efron!!!). I thought the romance was sweet (especially between Seaweed and Penny), and even if the storyline was a tad frivolous we'd better just accept 'Hairspray' for what it is—a fun musical with plenty of jokes and a touch of romcom too.
