I'm starting to accept this movie for what it is. Barring Zac Efron, it's not going to be so bad!

Marissa Jaret Winokur on the Hairspray OCR. Okay look. I completely understand the usage of the "Tracy voice". That I can take. But she CANNOT sing. I don't even care what anyone says. When I saw Hairspray Las Vegas, Katrina Rose Didikerson did the standard Tracy, but MY GOD she could sing. There's a difference between using a character voice and no vocal chops to back it up and using a character voice and using your pipes to BLOW MY FACE OFF.
