Movie: Hairspray: 8-10:30 p.m., BRAV
It started as a John Waters-directed movie, then transitioned into a hit stage musical. Now it comes full circle by taking movie form again in its more tuneful incarnation. The entertaining tale lets John Travolta make an amusing gender switch as Edna Turnblad, mother of aspiring 1960s dance-show participant Tracy (newcomer Nikki Blonsky). Others (Michelle Pfeiffer, Brittany Snow) don’t want plus-sized Tracy to have a spotlight.
