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).

If you can handle weepy smiles and lots of hairspray, then go.

A real crowd-pleaser and one of the more successful of the recent wave of '50s-style, small-town British comedies in the wake of The Full Monty.

Few things can be counted on to lift a person's spirits better than a good haircut. If Blow Dry isn't quite so sure a bet, it probably comes close enough.

If Blow Dry isn't a rousing triumph on the order of The Full Monty and Brassed Off, Rickman, Richardson and Nighy make sure it's a winning film.

You find yourself liking many of these people and even sort of rooting for the Cut Above team.

Scintillating and heartwarming.

If Blow Dry doesn't succeed with flying curlers, it still has much to offer those who possess a patient sense of humor.

It doesn't matter if you know or care nothing about hairstyling. You'll probably enjoy this movie more the less you care about hair.

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

The whole enterprise is awash in a combined farcical obviousness and drippy sentimentality to induce more audience groans than laughs.
