A fun breezy musical comedy about Tracy Turnblad (Nikki Blonsky) a bubbly fun loving teenager with some extra weight, who’s obsessed with the Corny Collins Show that she, follows religiously everyday after school. As she rushes home with her best friend Penny (Amanda Bynes) fantasizing about the dreamy Link Larkin (Zac Efron), much to the surprise of her mother Edna (John Travolta). When a cast of the show suddenly leaves, auditions are held to pick a new cast member. Aided by her friend Seaweed (Elijah Kelly) Tracy is able to take the part and join the show. However, not everyone is pleased with her addition, at least not dance queen Amber Von Tussle (Brittany Snow) and her Momma Velma (Michelle Pfiefer). But Tracy was eyeing bigger issues than a rivalry with some teenager queen, her purpose was a much nobler one; social Justice. A touch and sensitive issue treated with such grace and lightness to brighten the darkest of hearts, with colorful characters and dance numbers to tap your feet to.

Did we mention (John Travolta) is her Mother Edna? Yes Mother.
