Hmmmmm.......whilst often cited as a blaxploitation version of the 1975 Warren Beatty hit, Shampoo, the only real similarity between the two films is that the main protagonists are hairdressers...and of course the titles are ever so slightly similar of course....um....anyway, in this offering, our hero, Mr Johnathan is a man as much in demand for his man tool as for his curling tongs. And in a nutshell there is the intrinsic plot of the film. Well, OK there is a bit more to it then, involving one of our heroes conquests being the 'property' of a mob boss and the said slimebag's subsequently ever more violent methods of trying to get her back, however, it has to be said that the film itself is sadly, for the most part so mundane that it is hard to pay much attention to the unfolding 'events'. Thankfully, the final twenty or so minutes do kick into overdrive with a particularly gory climax but such a bizarrely violent finale ultimately seems strangely, completely juxtaposed with all that precedes it.
Certainly I've seen far worse flicks in my time but in all honesty I can't recommend this for either Blaxploitation nor bad movie fans; Note: Tedium doth not a good film make.
