Movie Reviews

Disapointed !!!!!!!!!
Lovin Locs | Chicago, IL | 04/08/2005
(1 out of 5 stars)

"The play was not worth the money. The humor is bad and the characters are horrible. This was so unlike the other plays that I've seen. I was really disappointed because I thought it would be better. The camera was too far away and the script was awful. The plot was all screwed up and I kept falling to sleep.

Don't buy it!!!!!"
Even as a play alone it's pretty bad

"What's the point?

I have a particular fondness of theatre, but the best part of theatre is being there. This movie tries hard to give that experience by showing reaction shots of the audience, but it's not the same.

Some stage shows are open enough and large enough to translate well into a filmed narration without changing sets or adapting. This isn't one of them. In fact, even as a play alone it's pretty bad. The characters are one-dimensional caricatures, the script is lousy, most of the acting is pretty bad, and it doesn't really have a storyline... really...

The only part that's even remotely interesting is the scene where Big Mama wears the zebra suit and the cast just loses control and completely breaks the fourth wall. Yet even still that moment would be a lot more special and a lot more endearing had I actually been there than have to rely on shoddily shot video editing to tell me where to look.

All in all, it was a pretty ridiculous experience, not worth even the price of a rental.

It Wasn't That Bad!

"Even though I thought that sweetness was overdoing his gay roll, it had it's perks. It kept me awake and had me laughing to the point where I couldn't breathe. Especially when Big mama pulled the gun out on the girl and waltzed out in that zebra cat suit and the cast thought it was so funny, they forgot their lines and had the guy come out and tell them what was to be said next. The play has its ups and downs, but you gotta be in a certain mood to watch it."
Beauty Shop: Original Staged MESS!!!!
D. Pruitt | NYC, USA | 07/21/2005

"This is the worst mess I've ever seen. The cast is lousy and the actors stink. The sound is horrible and some of the cast members are shouting there dialogue instead of speaking loud and clearly. There is a difference in speaking loud and clear or just plain shouting. It's hard to watch because of the lack of structure-In short this stage play is a HOT MESS!! Don't waste your money on this one. Do not rent or buy this dvd if you do you will be highly disappointed. So if you must see it borrow it from a friend that will probably thank you for taking it off there hands."
