Baltimore, 1962. Chubby Tracy Turnblad (Ricki Lake) is devoted to 'The Corny Collins Show', a local pop program in which white teens dance to cleaned-up black music. Tracy fights her way onto the show and leads a crusade for integrated television that soon sparks off riots in the local carnival.
Thoroughly deserving of its cult status
