When big hair meets big dreams anything can happen - and does - in this high-energy comedy that proves you don't have to fit in to win. Grossing £12.5 million at the UK box office so far, the show-stopping musical Hairspray will be available as 1-disc and 2-disc editions to rent and buy on both DVD and blu-ray on 19th November 2007 from Entertainment in Video.

Based on the 1988 John Waters cult classic film and the critically-acclaimed Tony Award-winning Broadway hit musical, Hairspray features an all-star cast which includes John Travolta (Pulp Fiction, Face Off, Get Shorty ) as over protective mother Edna Turnblad, Michelle Pfeiffer (Dangerous Liasons, The Fabulous Baker Boys, What Lies Beneath) as the scheming Velma Von Tussel and Christopher Walken (The Deer Hunter, Sleepy Hollow, Catch Me If You Can) as off beat father Wilbur Turnblad and introduces eighteen-year-old newcomer Nikki Blonsky as Tracy Turnblad.

Hairspray follows the hopes and dreams of Tracy, a big girl with big hair and an even bigger heart, as she battles to overcome prejudices to pursue her one passion - dancing - and learns along the way that in racially segregated 1960's Baltimore, she's not the only one who doesn't fit in.

An upbeat musical comedy, Hairspray is directed and choreographed by Adam Shankman (Bringing Down the House, The Pacifier) from a screenplay by Leslie Dixon (Freaky Friday, Mrs. Doubtfire). The music is by Emmy, Tony and Grammy Award-winner and five-time Oscar® nominee Marc Shaiman (Hairspray: The Musical, Sleepless in Seattle, The American President, South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut) with lyrics by Tony and Grammy Award-winner Scott Wittman (Hairspray: The Musical) and Marc Shaiman and features several brand new songs created specifically for the film adaptation.

Tracy's dream is to appear on the dance party TV sensation The Corny Collins Show but she doesn't fit in. Her plus size figure has always set her apart from the cool crowd, a fact she is reminded of daily by her over protective plus size mother Edna but this doesn't stop Tracy. She knows she's born to dance.

After wowing Corny Collins (James Marsden), Tracy wins a spot on his show and becomes an instant sensation, much to the irritation of the show's reigning princess, Amber Von Tussle (Brittany Snow) and her scheming mother Velma. A bitter feud erupts between the girls as they compete for the coveted "Miss Teenage Hairspray" crown. But the feud pales into insignificance as Tracy's eyes are opened to a bigger issue than the latest dance craze or the coolest hairdo - racial inequality.

Wanting to make a difference, Tracy risks losing her spot on The Corny Collins Show and joins a march with Motormouth Maybelle (Queen Latifah) to fight for racial integration but winds up with an arrest warrant instead. Has Tracy's luck finally run out? Will she miss the final dance-off against Amber and forfeit the title of "Miss Hairspray" or will she sing and dance her way out of trouble again?
