Beauty Shop Reviews
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".
Gina is a hairstylist that works at the largest stylist's shop in the city. Unfortunately, the owner treats her poorly making her feel unappreciated. Eventually, she quits and opens her own beauty shop. Her shop is in a rough neighborhood and is barely operational at times, but she develops a fan base and eventually business takes off. Can she keep her shop operational long enough to make some money and get out from the tremendous debt opening her business has caused?

Bille Woodruff, director of Bring it On: Fight to the Finish, Honey 2, Rags, A Very Larry Christmas, Addicted, and Drumline: A New Beat, delivers Beauty Shop. The storyline for this picture is fairly straightforward and as you'd expect. I did enjoy watching it unfold. There are some funny lines here and there and the acting isn't bad. The cast includes Queen Latifah, Alicia Silverstone, Andie MacDowell, Mena Suvari, LisaRaye McCoy, and Kimora Lee Simmons.
"I'd do him in a heartbeat if I wasn't so damn fertile."
I came across Beauty Shop while scrolling through movies on Netflix and decided to give it a shot (surprisingly, I had never seen this). I can say I did not have very high expectations for this film and found it better than I anticipated. Overall, this is far from a classic but also far from a waste of time. I recommend seeing this once.
