Blow Dry Reviews

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.

I really don't know who the heck this is supposed to appeal to...

The material just isn't up to par.

The half-hearted release mirrors the efforts put in by nearly everyone involved.

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.
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.
