Fun, romance, friendship. Everything you need for a Sunday afternoon at home
The basic idea is that Latifah decides to open her own hair salon after being unappreciated and taken advantage of by her boss (Kevin Bacon). That's basically it. You see the ups and downs that she goes through, but the actual main parts that make the story come across as rushed - a lot of the dialogue is generalised to the day to day life in the salon, and this takes up the majority of the film. The interesting parts just aren't elaborated enough.
The ending hasn't exactly got a twist, or not something I would call a twist, but it does finish the film off nicely. However, this "twist" along with the other significant parts of the film should have had more put into them.
Overall, Beauty Shop is quite watchable and funny, with a couple of laugh out loud moments. Unfortunately though, it does seem to plod along and loses the significant storylines into the background.
Gina works for Jorge, an egotistical, self-absorbed, self-proclamied hairstyling genius, whom you once see even touch a pair of scissors, with his own salon and hair products.
Jorge is constantly on Gina's back, talking down to her, putting her down in front of customers and casually handing her his own clients while he skips out to go to exercise classes without a 'please' or a 'by your leave'.
Things come to a head and Gina leaves and (after a brief period of unemployment and a visit to her bank) opens up her own shop. Complete with colourful cast of characters and problems.
It's not an epic of 'LotR' standards, but it's a nice enjoyable film about carving out your own place
The story's pretty simple. Gina (Queen Latifah) is a hairstylist for the fabulous Jorge – until he pushes her past her breaking point and she makes a few references to certain posterior body parts and leaves. Let's just stop and talk about Jorge. Just when I was beginning to take Kevin Bacon seriously as an actor, he shows up in what has to be the most excruciatingly embarrassing role I've encountered in years. Anyway, Gina decides to open her own shop. It's rough going early on, but she and a bevy of outspoken women soon turn her dream into a reality. Oh, there are more problems later on, of course, but it doesn't take her (and her hair crack conditioner) very long to start stealing some of Jorge's best customers away from him. This is where Mena Suvari and Andie MacDowell come in – I don't think either one will want to put these roles anywhere near the top of their acting resumes.Read more ›
