Plot Summary: In 1960s Baltimore, during the nation’s television dance show craze, plump, but pleasant high school outsider Tracy Turnblad (Nicole Blonsky) attempts to break out of the boundaries set upon her. Along with her best friend Penny Pingleton (Amanda Bynes), Tracy auditions for a part on the popular local TV program for teens, “The Corny Collins Show.” No one is surprised more when she makes it on than Tracy herself, but her newfound popularity is quickly in jeopardy when it catches the attention of a scheming and jealous rival, the attractive Amber Von Tussle (Brittany Snow). Things turn even more dramatic when Tracy wins the heart of Amber’s ex-boyfriend Link Larkin (Zac Efron). Together with her bitter TV station owner mother, former beauty queen Velma Von Tussle (Michelle Pfeiffer), Amber attempts to destroy Tracy, get her off “The Corny Collins Show,” and off the air for good.
