News & Interviews for Beauty Shop
Critic Reviews for Beauty Shop
As in the other two movies, the plot is a thin cardboard box carrying an assortment of observational doughnuts.
Take one part "Barbershop," one part Queen Latifah, sprinkle in a tablespoon of 'you-go-girl' and stir to get the confection of "Beauty Shop."
This bottom-feeder's sophomoric, locker room approach to black-white, gay-straight, and male-female issues cannot be undone by a saccharine storybook ending.
Audience Reviews for Beauty Shop
This movie was funny and really entertaining. I'm really liking Queen Latifah. Her attitude is just awesome.
OK, so what's the plot? A hair stylist (Queen Latifah) walks out on her boss (Kevin Bacon). Boss doesn't think she'll make it. She makes it while stealing all of his customers in a comedic process. Meets hot guy (Dimon Hounsou). Boss tries to get revenge.
Yes, you have seen this movie before.
It has a few funny moments, some of them not intentional, but Beauty Shop really is your standard, predictable, recycled film. File this one under "Been there, done that".
