John Waters made a film that's rated PG. Who could've predicted that?
Hairspray was the first Waters film I saw. I was in 7th grade - young, impressionable, naive (okay, maybe not naive). From that moment on, I was in love. I had no idea what I was in love with, of course, until I had seen more John Waters' films, but there was a glimmer of it in Hairspray. The underlying promise of perversity and depravity to be revealed with each new John Waters' film that I would view.
