Beauty Shop DVD Review

Queen Latifah is back on the big screen, and she's brought a bunch of your fave actors with her in the new flick, Beauty Shop. Find out if this movie is hair-raisingly funny or if it just falls flat!

Beauty Shop - Cute Coif

Queen Latifah play Gina, a single mom who's paying for her daughter's expensive music school by working as a hair dresser. But, when her demanding and demeaning boss (played by Kevin Bacon) pushes her too far, she quits and starts her own salon. But starting her own business is a little more complicated than Gina bargained for. Crazy employees, even crazier customers and a city inspector that just won't leave her alone has Gina wondering if she can really do this. But, along the way she manages to make some good friends, who definitely keep her on her toes.

Beauty Shop - Bad Hair Day

Beauty Shop has a lot of laughs, especially when you see Kevin Bacon running around in his Uggs, but it also kind of drags at times. There are a lot of different story lines and characters being thrown in, which can get a little bit confusing. It's definitely a tolerable film, but the storyline could have been better written.

Beauty Shop - DVD Features

Beauty Shop isn't jam-packed with extras, but it's got enough to satisfy your extras craving. Like most funny flicks, this DVD has a great gag reel of all the silly outtakes. You also get a Inside the Style of Beauty Shop feature for a behind-the-scenes look on how they put everyone's wardrobe together! You also get commentary from directory Bille Woodruff (who also directed the flick, Honey!).

Beauty Shop - Bottom Line

If you're just looking for a fun flick that you can check out on a Friday night with your pals, Beauty Shop is a good choice. Catch peeps like Alicia Silverstone (Cher from Clueless), Mena Suvari (Heather from American Pie) and little Rudy Huxtable from the Cosby Show, Keshia Knight Pulliam. There are lots of lovable characters and you'll end up rooting for Gina to sort things out and really have a successful shop. If you're more of a Disney movie fan, you'll probably wanna skip this one.
