    While it’s certainly true that nobody can replace Divine, Harvey did a great job on Broadway. Like others, I’m thinking Travolta, not so much. But I’ll try to keep an open mind.

    I have to disagree – I think this looks hysterical.
    And remember, he is actually a talented singer.
    I’ve said it before, Best Supporting nomination coming his way…besides, these days if you fart in a musical you generate Oscar buzz (Dreamgirls for eg.)

    Hmmm, I don’t know about him either. I am trying to keep an open mind however I liked Bruce Vilanch as Edna Turnblad (and I’m not even a fan of musicals). Time will tell…

    Loved the John Waters movie. The Broadway musical (saw it with Harvey as Edna) not so much. Most of the “attitude” was gone/watered down for Broadway. I have a feeling this movie version will be even more watered down than the stage version. And John does look scary!
