Flamboyant Glasgow hairdresser, Crawford Mackinzie, gets a letter from the World Hairdresser International Federation inviting him to its prestigious annual contest in L.A. Filmmaker Martin Samuels is making a fly-on-the-wall documentary about Crawford; he and the crew go too. After maxing out his credit card at the Century Plaza Hotel, Crawford discovers he's been invited to participate in the audience, not the contest; he tries every angle imaginable to get in the competition: he phones fellow Scot Sean Connery, he gets a union card, he asks the reigning champion for help, and he connects with Connery's publicist, who's having a bad hair day. Will he succeed, for the little people? Written by
The working title for the film (Je M'Appelle Crawford) was rejected by Warner Bros because they doubted it would receive high audience appeal with a French title. See more »
Crawford rents a car that was apparently stolen from a Korean cook named Chokko. When Crawford visits Chokko's house, the camera pans and reveals a sign above the doorway on the ground floor displaying what seems to be 'Asian' characters. However, it's neither Korean nor any other Asian language. The characters are entirely fictitious. See more »

No one will mistake this as art, or even a mainstream film. But what it is is fun, campy and entertaining. The stereotypes are plentiful, and so are a few belly laughs. Not the best movie I've seen this month, but far from the worst. See it for what it is, light and fun with a few jabs at the hairdressing work.
