Storyline Heading
Gina Norris is a long way from the Barbershop - now she's in Atlanta making a name for herself at a posh Southern salon with her cutting-edge hairstyles. But when her flamboyant, egotistical boss takes it one criticism too far, she leaves his salon to open a shop of her own, taking the shampoo girl and a few key clients with her.

DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy - This spinoff from the Barbershop films is a sometimes-raunchy comedy aimed toward a young urban female audience. Those looking for a strong plot will be disappointed as it's more a collection of scenes, set pieces, and dialogue. Fans of the parent series of films may be disappointed by the lack of references to those movies.

Very Mixed

The above rating is an average of the critic reviews below.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good Latifah is profoundly comfortable with herself, and 'Beauty Shop' is comfortable with itself. It isn't simply trying to turn up the heat under a 'Barbershop' clone, but to be more plausible (not a lot, but a little) in the story of a woman starting her own business. It's more of a human comedy than stand-up or slapstick.

USA Today Full Review
Above Average Its tone set by the savvy character created by the talented Queen Latifah, Beauty Shop has some funny gags and broadly comic moments. The plot progression can be guessed early on, but the film is more about humor and heart than a clever story.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

We collected 134 moviegoer opinions. The ladies, who "Beauty Shop" is obviously targeted more towards, thought it was great. They gave high percentages of "Fantastic" and "Excellent" opinions with very few low opinions. Their opinions got even better as their age decreased so "Beauty Shop" makes a great mother daughter movie.

While there weren't as many male opinions the ones we got were great, especially for this type of movie. Again, there were lots of very high opinions and very few really low opinions, which is a great combination. The only somewhat negative thing about the male opinions is there are quite a few opinions of "Good." This isn't bad, it's just a little on the low side and indicates these moviegoers thought "Beauty Shop" was an Average/OK movie at best.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Leaving the Chicago crew behind, Gina Norris (Queen Latifah) is a long way from the Barbershop – she now lives in Atlanta and is making a name for herself and her cutting-edge hairstyles at a posh Southern salon. But when her flamboyant, egotistical boss, Jorge (Kevin Bacon), takes it one criticism too far, she storms out of his salon to open a shop of her own, taking the shampoo girl (Alicia Silverstone) and a few key clients (Andie MacDowell, Mena Suvari) with her.

Gina risks it all to buy a rundown beauty shop and gets to work making it her own, inheriting an opinionated group of headstrong stylists (including Alfre Woodard, Golden Brooks, and Sherri Shepherd), a colorful clientele, and a sexy upstairs electrician (Djimon Hounsou). It's a rocky road to fulfilling her dreams – and Jorge does his best to ruin her plans – but you can't keep a good woman down…and you can't keep a shopful of outrageous women from speaking their minds! Join Gina and her stylists for a raucous good time at the Beauty Shop.
