Awesome feel good movie... Maybe not the best in terms of continuity or originality but good nonetheless.

This movie has been on TV many times and I actually avoided it for a long time, thinking it wasn't "my type of comedy." I really enjoy Queen Latifah though and one day there was nothing else os so - What The Heck!!! I was so surprised! I thouroughly enjoyed the movie and have watched it just about every time it was on television and then thought of my Swap-A-DVD account. Glad I did. This is a very funny romantic comedy that, if you enjoy that genre, you should definitely watch - for that matter, you should own it so you have a laugh available any time you want.

Anything with Queen Latifah and Kevin Bacon has to be good. This was hysterical, and I thoroughly enjoyed the whole movie. Not one to miss.

"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."
Monkey Bread... EEEK!

"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"!!!"
