Product Description

Queen Latifah heads an "excellent ensemble" cast in this "warm, funny, empowering" (New York Post) comedy from the producers of Barbershop and the producer of Bringing Down the House! Co-starring Alicia Silverstone, Andie MacDowell, Alfre Woodard, Mena Suvari and Djimon Hounsou - and featuring Kevin Bacon in a hilarious performance - Beauty Shop "will slap a smile on your face and keep it there" (Premiere)! When Jorge (Bacon), the egotistical boss at a posh salon, pushes his star stylist, Gina(Latifah), a hair too far, Gina leaves and opens a beauty shop of her own. Inheriting an opinionated group of stylists, a colorful clientele and a sexy upstairs neighbor, Gina proves that you can't keep a good woman down - and you can't keep a shopful of outrageous women from speaking their minds!

Pretty predictable story line.
What sells is the great cast of characters and the clever writing.
Queen fans will love it and is good for all family viewing.

Format: DVD
If you examine this movie with a critical eye, you'll find a pretty lightweight, formulaic plot, a lot of superficial characters, and more than one questionable performance - but the critical eye cannot gauge the comedic beauty shop atmosphere or quantify the aura Queen Latifah exudes over the whole movie. There are ample doses of humor spread throughout the entire film, and thus Beauty Shop succeeds fairly well - albeit unevenly - as a comedy. I actually watched this film because Mena Suvari is in it, and I just have to say: Mena, the magic is gone. What in the world happened to bring Mena down to the level (nay, below the level) of Alicia Silverstone?

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. Mena is particularly disappointing, and it didn't help her or the story when her character suddenly underwent a complete personality change for seemingly no reason whatsoever toward the end.

Enjoyable! Jan. 26 2006
By Shirley Priscilla Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
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"!!!

Get Your 'Do On! April 1 2005
By Samanda b Jeude - Published on Amazon.com
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!

Beauty Shop Jan. 3 2010
By TREND700 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Leaving the Chicago crew behind, Gina Norris is a long way from the Barbershop--she now lives in Atlanta and is making a name for herself and her cutting-edge hairstyles at a posh Southern salon. But when her flamboyant, egotistical boss, Jorge, takes it one criticism too far, she storms out of his salon to open a shop of her own, taking the shampoo girl and a few key clients with her. Gina risks it all to buy a rundown beauty shop and gets to work making it on her own, inheriting an opinionated group of headstrong stylists, a colorful clientele, and a sexy upstairs electrician. It's a rocky road to fulfilling her dreams,and Jorge does his best to ruin her plans,but you can't keep a good woman down,and you can't keep a shopful of outrageous women from speaking their minds. Queen Latifah is irresistible. Good-natured and warmhearted fun.

Cute and funny but nothing new or original... Feb. 13 2008
By Andrew Ellington - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I absolutely love Queen Latifah. She makes any movie worth watching in my humble opinion. It's a shame that Latifah aside `Beauty Shop' is rather dull. It's not that it doesn't bring the funny; it's just that it's all funny we've seen many times before. I understand that it's harder and harder these days to find an original concept for anything, but really, watching `Beauty Shop' is like major deja vu. I've seen this done almost word for word before, I swear it.

The story revolves around Gina, a hairstylist who's fed up with working for the man (that man being the snobbish Jorge). Gina decides it's time to take her talent to the next level and open her own salon. Jorge of course doesn't like this much and begins working to shut her down. Things are difficult, being a single mother and all but she has the support of her friends and this gives her strength to push through. In the meantime Gina is given a huge opportunity when her own conditioner recipe (would it be called that?) is brought to a big wig corporation by a wealthy client. Things look to be going up for Gina, but will they stay up?

Latifah is funny as Gina. I just love her to death and she always creates the most likable characters. Even if her movies are all B-Grade at best (`Chicago' and 'Set it Off' aside) she always makes the experience worth it. The real standout here though is Kevin Bacon who is obviously overjoyed to be hamming it up as Jorge. His blonde locks and wispy attitude is just such a huge departure for him it's hilarious to see. I don't normally like Bacon but he had me in stitches. Alicia Silverstone also makes her return to the screen here, but her impression is less than impressive. Her accent is obnoxious and I found myself wishing she would get off the screen.

The cast is huge here with names like Andie MacDowell, Mena Suvari, Alfre Woodard and Djimon Hounsou showing up every now and then. Everyone does a decent job with what they are given and they all seem to work well with one another, feeding off the others energy.

As far as comedies go this one is funny, it's just very unoriginal. It doesn't mean that you can't find enjoyment out of this one since the laughs are there, just know that you'll have laughed at these gags before. If you're a fan of Latifah or anyone else in the cast then by all means check this one out. I have yet to see either of the `Barbershop' movies but I really need too since I hear they are a laugh riot. I'm sure they are better than this film as far as plot goes.
