From Amazon.co.uk

Shampoo was billed as a sex comedy when it was first released in 1975, cashing in on the priapic reputation of its leading man and producer Warren Beatty. More than a quarter of a century on, that tag looks somewhat inadequate. Against a background of aimless bed-hopping and power-broking, Shampoo satirises the cultural and political wasteland of late-1960s Beverley Hills society. Ladies who lunch are married to ambitious, unfaithful husbands with mistresses; their daughters are dysfunctional; and the mistresses spend more time with their dogs than their lovers. George, the philandering hairdresser, is the common denominator who services them all. But he has private ambitions and is hustling for investment in his own salon. Beatty's restless performance as the man who can't say "no" is intriguing, waking up suddenly and too late to the chaos and vapidity of his life.

The humour is bleak, sharpened by the background of Nixon's ascent to the White House: Shampoo is a cynical by-product of the Watergate scandal. There are good performances from Julie Christie and Goldie Hawn as two of George's leading conquests, and from a pre-Star Wars Carrie Fisher as the teenager who tries to seduce him. But Lee Grant garnered the awards as the embittered wife who finally calls "time".

On the DVD: Shampoo is presented in 1:85.1 anamorphic widescreen, replicating the glossy production values of the original theatrical experience. The mono Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtrack is well balanced. There are no extras apart from standard subtitles. --Piers Ford

An unpredictable film that crosses through different genres, from sentimental comedy to satire, to drama, with a end that you don't expect and a kind of impressionistic and improvised acting and a seventies independent directing style applied on comedy.
From the brilliant director of The Last Detail, Being There and Harold & Maude

'Shampoo' was directed by the late, great Hal Ashby in 1975 from a script written by Robert 'Chinatown' Towne and Warren Beatty (who would go on to co-write 'Reds', which he would also direct)...The film is located in 1968, set over the night of the election that would bring Richard Milhous Nixon to power. It is significant that Beatty wrote speeches/orated for Robert Kennedy. 1968- the year of the barricades, the continuing civil disorder, Vietnam, Woodstock, Altamont, Cielo Drive/Manson family; the end of the hippie dream. 'Easy Rider's final lines by Fonda and Hopper: "We blew it".
Nixon's election is the backdrop to the incestual, venal set of relationships between the characters here. This is an extension of the worlds found in 'Bob and Carol and Ted and Alice' and 'The Graduate'. The utopian possibilties of the Sixties 'counterculture' (Lester believes George is 'anti-establishment'). This is a precursor of Lawrence Kasdan's 'The Big Chill'- which presents the counterculture as really, when it comes down to it, just as corrupt as their previous generation. Coincidence that Ashby's film is at the centre of the American film renaissance of the Seventies, as captured in 'Easy Riders,Raging Bulls' (which refers to this film). The pursuit of hedonism, the "no regrets" George declares to Jill, is the moral abyss of cocaine and business interests and provides a potent allegory for the corrupt nature of Nixon's Presidency. The Nixon themes are as potent as the Watergate backdrop in Ang Lee's 'The Ice Storm' (based on the Rick Moody novel)- which also parallels the hedonism and moral-digressions at the heart of the American philosophy.
All this is of interest, but shouldn't get in the way of what is a highly amusing satire- with some great comic moments and lines.

Interesting movie. It explores well known saying if You dance with too many partners You may end up alone at the end, so there is nothing really new. However the film is really good because it probably captures the essence of the time in America. Liberation, money, Talent, success drives to Hedonism and leaves heros in emptiness. Those two people probably love each other, but she is too scared and chooses the safer option for life. Warren Beatty is really good, especially in scenes with Julie Christie, but honestly all cast is great! Hollywood style at it's best!

Robert Towne, who has written a number of popular movies and at least one critically acclaimed one--Chinatown (1974)--and Warren Beatty wrote this satire of Hollywood. Beatty plays George Roundy, a not entirely bright but nimble hairdresser on a motorcycle who is much beloved and desired by woman. The women doing most of the desiring are Lee Grant (Felicia), Julie Christie (Jackie), and Goldie Hawn (Jill). Jack Warden plays Lester a successful investor who, to his chagrin and ultimate amusement, learns that his wife, his mistress, and his daughter Lorna (Carrie Fisher) are being bedded by the guy he thinks is gay. (Shades of the sham eunuch in the harem!)

This is a premise that many in the Hollywood Hills could not resist, the irony cutting so beautifully through the canyons and swimming pools and the lavish parties. Most of the action takes place on that November day in 1968 when Nixon and Agnew were swept into the White House by the "silent majority." Lester and his friends are quite pleased and are celebrating as the election returns come in. Meanwhile George is trying to raise money so he can open his own shop since he's got the "heads." Keeping the heads though turns out to be more than he can handle--and to be honest jumping from bed to bed several times a day with several different women might be too much for any man.

Will Georgie-Porgie, puddin' pie (who kissed the girls and made them cry) get the money for his shop and the girl he loves--and which girl is it, that he loves? Goldie Hawn wears a micro-mini (but there's no peeking!) and Julie Christie sports a short pony skirt with boots while Lee Grant has to play the eldest woman. Now, who gets George and would she really want him?
