9. Edna and Wilbur Turnblad – Hairspray
An unconventional couple, not least because Edna is in fact John Travolta in a woman suit, but a loving duo nonetheless. They stand behind their daughter even though they’re not quite sure what it is the kids are into these days. Edna and Wilbur work hard to provide Tracy with a future and when it all goes a little racistly pear shaped, they drop everything to support her. Even if they are having marital problems themselves, their daughter comes first. And anyway, who wouldn’t want a female Travolta as their mum and Christopher fucking Walken as their dad?
