"I am not black. I am not a woman. I have never had a weave or extensions, and I try to stay out of the ghetto as much as possible.
Yet I got a kick out of Beauty Shop for some reason???
The script itself is not all that strong, but the performances by QL and the rest of the ensemble cast are watchable and engaging.
Props to Kevin Bacon. His outrageous and flamboyant Jorge' is a nice departure from his other roles and he comes across as quite convincing in the part.
The movie only gets 3 stars from me because the storyline is quite conventional and played out. However, for the most part the jokes are funny and the actors deliver them nicely.... so tack on an extra star for that.
While it won't win any awards, "Beauty Shop" is pure mindless fun.

"In this movie we have a woman, Gina, played by Queen Latifah. Gina works in a beauty parolor owned by a rude, self-righteous man. She finally is fed-up with working for someone else and strikes out on her own. It's hard for her, she has a daughter to support but her determination is strong.
I really liked this movie, it was fun, yet had the message in it to never give up, never. QL does an outstanding job portraying the feelings of Gina and the supporting characters worked well with her. If you get a chance sit down and watch this,very entertaining and upbeat, a story with heart and soul."

"This movie was hilarious. I saw it in the theatre and I laughed the entire time. People should not always expect a comedy to be all serious and have a perfect plot... this movie is about having fun and that's exactly what i did. It was "FIIIIIEERCE FIIIIEEERCE"!!!"

"Queen Latifah & Alicia Silvestone scintillate as hairdressers in this Black-Is-Beautiful movie. As the Queen sashays into her own shop, where she sells her 'hair crack' conditioner, and Alicia wins as a wanna-be black girl, Djimon Hounsou really glistens as the hunky upstairs electrician who becomes the Queen's handyman.
All the ingedients are here, as comedy mixes w/edginess. Kevin Bacon is Jerome, a nasty Eurotrash hairdresser who ab/uses the Queen until she quits, taking a shampoo girl w/her. Winning a loan for her new shop, a place that looks like 'somebody ate the 70's & threw up', the Queen loses 2 loser hairdressers & learns to cope w/her ghetto location. Alfre Woodward is another, winning 'do do-er, & Della Reese is a surprise quick cameo. Go see it ... unless you're not into humor & beautiful black babes!"
