"Beauty Shop" is the female sequel to "Barbershop." It's filmed in color but most jokes are in black and white. Kevin Bacon is the flamboyant, egotistical boss of the posh salon where the Queen works. She soon tires of his criticism and storms out deciding to open her own salon and takes the shampoo girl, Alicia Silverstone, and a key client, Andie MacDowell with her.

When you go into business for yourself, you inherit problems and they all cost money. She gets sabotaged by her ex-employer. Help comes from an upstairs electrician who also helps her fall in love.

Most of the laughs come from the gossip and banter between the beauticians but it seems that half of the audience didn't get it because of a language barrier called "Ebonics." Still "Beauty Shop" cuts two stars.

Rated: PG13 MGM Studios
