I was very disappointed in this movie. I too am a Jennifer Lewis fan and she attracted me to renting the movie. Yet, the only characters I enjoyed were Lewis (Nora), Jones, and Ali. Lil' Kim, Bobby Brown, and Whitney Houston should not have been in the movie. The director, in his interview said that they were looking for a hip hop element to be included in this "Urban" film. Wrong Idea. If you look at Barbershop, although Ice-Cube and Eve were the so-called "Hip Hop" element you forgot that they were rappers, in how good they performed. I don't really see Ice-Cube as a rapper, but a actor now. Nora's Hair Salon, needed to be innovative and try something new. It gets tiring to see the same old "Black" movie do the same thing, which is nothing. I want someone to make a movie that is going to appeal to other aspects of life than me going to the Beauty Salon. Yes I seen Barbershop 1 and 2, and enjoyed it. (Barbershop 1 was Better) and yes there is a Beautyshop movie with Queen Latifah coming soon, and I pray that this one fairs better than Nora's Hair Salon. I just hope that they stop making silly movies with Black stars, just to make a movie. Nora's Hair Salon had quality Actresses and Actors, I just hope that they can get quality scripts to make quality movies, not this junk that has been given to us. How do producers and diretors expect to be supported when they give audiences the same old junk? Then they cry that no African Americans are being nominated for awards. "Make quality movies with fresh new story-lines" No wonder most of our "Black" movies are on video in a month after release or go to video without being in one theater.
