Did You Know?


Al: [with long hair] You think I want this? Do you think I appreciate old guys in granny glasses asking me if I like the new Grateful Dead album? That is the problem with everything. They try and make it better without realizing the old is fine. They take away the pinball machine, bring in the video game... I do not care if a monkey can make it to the top of a building, unless he was going up there to defenestrate his wife! I do not want a hair salon, I want the barber pole, I want the dog in the ...

Al's beloved barber dies!
28 May 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Al refuses to go to a salon after his longtime barber dies. He and his friends suddenly find themselves in need of a haircut. So they comply with today's standards and go to a unisex salons with men that they wouldn't spend time with. When Al mentions about the Bears, a guy thinks he is talking about actual bears and not the Chicago Bears football team. Okay, Al and his friends would love to go out but their new hairstylists complain that it would make their hair frizz and it's bad for their hairstyles which are positively atrocious. Al is determined to find a barber while one of the men claims not to be comfortable with being a plumber. Al jokes "we're going dancing." He replies "I'm not dressed for dancing." Saturday Night Live original cast member Garrett Morris plays one of Al's friends.
