We end Musical Month Deux with a musical remake of the John Waters-directed original that features one of the strangest screen performances ever: Hairspray (2007). Film critic Josh Hurtado and Alamo Drafthouse's Jackie Stewart join the episode to talk all about John Travolta's role, the music, and the film's message in 2024.

A remake of the 1988 Waters film of the same name, it follows Tracy Turnblad, a teenager in 60s Baltimore who is obssessed with singing and becoming a star. Her journey to stardom takes her to the Corny Collins Show and innercity Baltimore as she attempts to make a name for herself and right the societal wrongs of the time.
