A large ensemble of talented British actors is wasted in this disappointing comedy by Simon Beaufoy, the scribe of the Full Monty.

January 2, 2007
The whole enterprise is awash in a combined farcical obviousness and drippy sentimentality to induce more audience groans than laughs.
July 18, 2003
In the end it may be nothing but hot air, but like a warming gust of conditioned wind after that cold morning shower, Blow Dry feels good (enough).

Shows a hairdresser and his wife learning how to be a family in a new way at the National Hair Championships.

I really don't know who the heck this is supposed to appeal to...
August 19, 2001
The material just isn't up to par.
| Original Score: 2/5
May 3, 2001
The half-hearted release mirrors the efforts put in by nearly everyone involved.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
March 9, 2001
The script by Simon Beaufoy of The Full Monty fame is far more soapy than bubbly as it concentrates on extended family entanglements and allows its comic potential to be bleached out by a ponderous mawkish streak.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
March 9, 2001
Marred by mixing a supposedly touching and tragic family story with a half-blown, numbly campy send-up of the world of hair, Blow Dry just doesn't jibe.
March 9, 2001
Blow Dry seems both overplotted and underimagined.

March 9, 2001
Blow Dry is enjoyable in a low-key way, but it's far from an unqualified hit, and lacks the infectious energy of Beaufoy's earlier effort.

March 9, 2001
Blow Dry has some wonderful moments, but the laughs are thin and the serious bits skid into melodrama.
March 9, 2001
By the end of this dispirited piece of regurgitated Full Monty NutraSweet, you'll wish someone were pointing a nail gun at your head instead.
March 9, 2001
For all of its attempts at fluffing up this could-be-cute tale, Blow Dry lays flat -- padded down by subplots about broken marriages, struggles with cancer and an unnecessary Romeo-and-Juliet story.
March 9, 2001
A tedious comedy.
March 9, 2001
This comedy is like the worst kind of hair: limp, unattractive, dull, full of split ends and needlessly dirty.
March 9, 2001
What Blow Dry needs, though, is less connect-the-dots and a little more of the waywardness that Warren Clarke's mayor-turned-emcee manages to wring from his limited assignment.
March 8, 2001
Most of the characters are just plain boring.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/10
March 8, 2001
It's fun.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

Blow Dry, the British comedy opening today, has a cast to die for, but that's about all that it has.
