You can't stop the beat!!

Boo loves movies..especially ones where they sing and dance. She loves soundtracks, and learns all the words. She was enthralled when I forced allowed my kids to listen to Les Miserables in the car a couple weeks ago. She defiantly got that from me, since Hubby hates musicals.

Her latest love is the new Hairspray. I love the old Hairspray and the new, but I must admit that the new is wonderfully cheesey. In Boo's mind it doesn't hurt that he is in it...

The dancing is fabulous, the singing wonderful, and it is definitely a 10 on the cheese factor. It is rated PG, so I don't have to worry about the kids watching it (there is one swear word that I can think of, but Boo tunes it out so well). Hunter is not a fan as much as Boo, but he will sit and watch it with her.

The soundtrack is great, and even has Ricki Lake singing on a song (she has a cameo in the movie).

This is one that I recommend for the music lover in your house!!

I have yet to see either movies. I did however see the musical tour of Hairspray recently and loved it! I have to add that movie to my netflix.

Thanks for popping over to my blog! I too love musicals although I haven't had the kids listen to the soundtracks just yet. Hairspray is on my list of to see - old and new!
