Movie Info

Blood may be thicker than water, but it doesn't hold a candle to hairspray, as we learn in this urban comedy. Angela (Kellita Smith) is a successful hairdresser who operates her own salon based in Los Angeles. One day, Angela gets an unexpected visit from her sister Peaches (Mo'Nique), who runs a beauty shop of her own in Baltimore. The family reunion turns out to not be as happy as Angela may have hoped -- Peaches is trying to stay a step ahead of IRS agents who want to collect 50,000 dollars

The story here, by Andrea Wiley, Sherri A. McGee and Devon Gregory, is slapped together with such poorly drawn stereotypes and lapses in logic as to provoke not shaking bellies but shaking heads.

An anemic sitcomsitcom pilot dragged out to an excruciating 108-minute running time.

The plot is slender but serviceable, and under Leslie Small's attentive direction, not only do Mo'Nique and Smith excel, but those playing salon staffers -- Taraji Henson, Keiko Agena, Cee Cee Michaela et al -- also make lively impressions.

A predictable urban comedy set mostly in a chichi Beverly Hills beauty salon, Hair Show is a female-oriented Barber Shop -- minus the steady humor and pointed social commentary.

The story is so slight, a low-wattage hair dryer could blow it away.

A Baltimore hairstylist takes refuge, and umbrage, in her buppie sister's Los Angeles salon in this sputtering star vehicle for the comedian Mo'Nique.

Coiffure competition at center of sibling rivalry comedy!

stars Mo'nique, who's both fatter and sassier than [Queen] Latifah, but alas, not a whole lot funnier.

This chop shop is a tad shabby.

What this rehash desperately needs is some real style, but even an industrial-strength can of hair spray can't keep it from coming undone.
