Storyline

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 <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Goofs

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 »

Different . . . but there's nothing wrong with that!
7 August 2000 | by (bristol,uk) – See all my reviews

I found this film to be rather unique. It wasn't too 'mockumentary' but it wasn't exactly a beautifully edited screen play either. It took a while to get used to the pace, but then its merits shined through. I love subtle humour, and the thought that went into those adhoc comments and little facial expressions made it extremely funny. (Check out Martin's face when Crawford refuses to talk about his childhood) The storyline and ending maybe predictable, but aren't they all? Definitely worth a giggle. Oh . . .and any movie with a kilt scene can't be wrong now, can it?
