I am not black. I am not a woman. I have never had a weave or extensions, and I try to stay out of the ghetto as much as possible.
Yet I got a kick out of Beauty Shop for some reason???
The script itself is not all that strong, but the performances by QL and the rest of the ensemble cast are watchable and engaging.
Props to Kevin Bacon. His outrageous and flamboyant Jorge' is a nice departure from his other roles and he comes across as quite convincing in the part.
The movie only gets 3 stars from me because the storyline is quite conventional and played out. However, for the most part the jokes are funny and the actors deliver them nicely.... so tack on an extra star for that.
While it won't win any awards, "Beauty Shop" is pure mindless fun.
