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.
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!!Read more ›
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.
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..
