Goofs

Gloria's trailer is visible next to the barber shop the first day she arrives to work on the books; it shouldn't be there yet. The storyline calls for the trailer to be parked next to the shop the following day. When sitting behind the shop and she informs him of the business's financial woes that afternoon, Art's Mustang is parked beside the building, as it should be. See more »

Fun, whimsical tale about a barber, a girl, and a new life
4 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Cheers" alumni John Ratzenberger stars as Art Leroldi, a grumpy barber who holds some personal issues of his past a bit too closely. When troubled times come, he is forced to hire Gloria, a female - something he never thought he'd do. Although she comes across a bit brashly at first, she ends up being his business mind that might save the day. Enter other characters along the way, that both add and disparage each of them, and the tale keeps the viewer watching. The filming was done well. The story is interwoven with subplots, and moves ahead at a good pace. The characters are interesting, and each has their own tale to tell, while intertwining with each other. For a first effort, director/writer Chris Ford strikes a winner with this piece. Expect great things in the future. Don't miss this flick though.
