1.0 out of 5 stars Don't bother January 25, 2005
I rented this movie (with a free movie rental coupon) and even having paid nothing I was disappointed. I really love Jennifer (Nora) and think she is a highly underrated actress. It's unfortunate that she has to take roles like this that underutilize her talent.

THe storyline is predictable and the characters underdeveloped. The storyline depends upon too many stereotypical depictions of characters - the "good" girl, the "bad" girl, the thug, the homosexual male.

I'm a big supporter of Af Am books and films, but I wouldn't recommend spending your hardearned money on this one.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not the female version of Barbershop!!! August 4, 2004
After Barbershop you knew a hair salon movie would follow. Nora is a beauty shop owner. She is the mamma to everyone who works, or does not work in her shop. She is also keeping a secret, and also suffering from heartbreak. Nora also has a hair care line that she is hoping to sell, but finds the formula is too strong. You have Ming the manicurist who is a smart talker "where you get your feet from Prison?" You have sexually confused Devon, and his flamboyant "boyfriend" Delicious. Chole (Tamala Jones)is the hair stylist who thinks she knows everything and does what she wants.

You have the Latina stylist by day and the stripper by night. Then you have Lily. Lily is a new stylist hoping she will belong to the "family", and dealing with a guy who is abusive to her. Lily is young, and she is naive. She has skills when it comes to doing hair, and great ideas that could help Nora. Bobby Brown also has a part in the film as Benny, he is the abusive guy who won't leave Lily alone.

This movie had moments that will make you chuckle. The movie pretty much showed the whole dynamic about the beauty shop being a place where women congregate, talk, and share the gossip. My favorite scene in the movie is when this woman has a relaxer on her head and it starts to burn and burn bad. She does what every woman has wanted to do in a shop. Totally freak out!!! Now that was the one scene that made ma laugh. Another scene that I found funny was when some guy was sent to get Lily and Nora punched him out, and then everyone in the salon made him look like a woman while he was out cold.

This movie is NOT the female Barbershop. It's no where in the same league. Lil Kim has a small part that is forgettable. (...) This movie was made with a small budget and it shows!!

2.0 out of 5 stars Could have been great, what a waste December 24, 2004
What a waste of great talent. All this film needed was a bigger budget. The screenplay was mediocre at best. It was obviously shot on 16mm film. Looks like it was trying to be a Barbershop clone. There were some funny moments thats why I gave it 2 stars.

1.0 out of 5 stars Cancel your appointment at this salon March 28, 2005
I caught Nora's Hair Salon on Christmas Eve last year on UPN. I started watching the movie at 8:00; it was so terrible I wound up turning off around 8:20. If they tried really hard they could have made a bad movie.

There is a total lack of effort onscreen. No one tried to make this movie work. Not the writers, because the script is about absolutely nothing. All I know is Nora owns a hair salon and people work there. I wanted to who Nora was, and why this hair salon is so important to the community. Why do people want to come here? Why do I want to know about this place? But the screenplay doesn't answer these questions. Instead it takes stock characters and a stock situation used in a dozen other hair comedies and warms them over. Since the writer took no time to tell a story, I wasn't interested in watching the rest of the movie.

The actors don't try to act either. Most are just standing there saying their lines looking bored. I think I saw someone actually look at their watch a couple of times! Cameos by Lil Kim, Bobby Brown and others are a total waste; as they do absolutely nothing except look out of place onscreen. I guess the only thing of interest to them was the paycheck.

Please don't spend your hard earned cash on this DVD It's a total waste of your time If the writers directors, actors and producers of this movie aren't willing to try onscreen why you make an effort to spend 90 minutes of your valuable time watching them do nothing. If you're looking for a good DVD buy Never 2 Big or Diary of a Mad Black Woman instead. At least the actors in those movies try to make an entertaining movie.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the greatest.. June 2, 2004
By A Customer
I was actually excited to get this movie. I had ambitions that it was going to be a hysterical laugh from beginning to end. I was wrong. There are it's funny parts, it's sterotypical parts, and it's parts that get your heart to warm up. Although it has a good meaning and theme goin on, I got tired of it quickly. It's like a low budget film and something that should have been on Lifetime. All of the actors played their role well, (although I thought that Delicious was being overly dramatic and portraying homosexuals in an ill manner). Overall, I can't say I liked it nor disliked it. It was OK. I just learned not to have many high expectations of a movie based on it's lead actor.

4.0 out of 5 stars Funny... laughing all the way through July 21, 2004
Grrl pleazzz this was soo funny Jenifer Lewis is great no matter what she's in... the basic beauty shop with all of the drama...
I think Queen Latifah's Beauty Shop will be similar to this...
This was good even though it wasn't a blockbuster as far as the amount of money it made... The guy who plays half of the gay couple was actually one of the producers he played in another movie with Lisa Ray and Lil Kim I can't remember the name.
Ms. Tamala Jones is always good and right on point... I brought this from (...) and have watched it over and over and over..
Good Buy
