Good Hair Reviews

Though Rock's affable nature and probing comic instincts ensure the tone is always light and jocular, his discoveries are sometimes jaw-dropping...

Daily Telegraph

It's an eye-opener, if a blatantly chauvinistic one: Rock's main beefs seem to be that men have to pay for it, and upkeep of such a coveted accessory is a barrier to intimacy in the bedroom.

Shadows on the Wall

Chris Rock hosts this exploration into hair issues in the African-American community, talking to celebrities, experts and hairdressers. What's surprising is that this is such a big issue, although the film isn't much more than entertaining fluff.

Little White Lies

All Christopher Guest-allusions aside, this is a crucial documentary about race and gender today.

Despite dozens of interviews and Rock's personal agenda, this isn't the hard-hitting expose it should have been.

Rock fronts this informative rummage through the $9 billion US black hair industry in a style much like his stand-up comedy: hilarious, insightful and charming enough to let him get away with the flammable stuff.

It's just about sharp and funny enough to make you wish it was a bit sharper and funnier.

Radio Times

Though its production values are on the low side and it flounders a little as it bounces from Hollywood to India, overall it's a fascinating, energetic and enlightening film that'll ensure you'll never look at hair the same way again.

...an amiable and mostly funny spotlight on a part of black culture...

Mr. Rock and Mr. Stilson don't beat you up with a tiresome polemic a-la Michael Moore. Never does he put himself at the center of the film, condescend to the audience, or insult his interview subjects regardless of their views...

The "Girlfriend, ya gotta see this movie!" of the year for an entertaining and provocative tour of some of the permutations of African-American women with their hair.

Good Hair stands as an informative and entertaining documentary, and one that's pulled off with no small measure of style.

Educates more than it entertains, even though there's plenty of colorful subjects (Chris) Rock could have gently lampooned.

One of the best movies of the year seems to be lost in the Halloween-time shuffle.

Despite the padding, there's enough interesting sociological digging here -- not to mention the easygoing presence of comic Chris Rock -- to keep us entertained and even enlightened.

Good Hair...uncovers a multibillion dollar industry relying on misinformation, misrepresentation, and misguided personal opinions about fashion to maintain its beauty salon stronghold.

Unlike most documentaries with a message, 'Good Hair' invites moviegoers to a conversation, not a lecture.

Full of sweetly sardonic observations, the docu-comedy is one of the funniest movies of the year.

Rock sheds new light on this old story through a poignant mix of interviews, investigation and his trademark satire.
