Beauty Shop :- Watch Beauty Shop on Youtube on Fire, A determined hairstylist (Queen Latifah) competes with her former boss (Kevin Bacon) after opening her own business in Atlanta. Queen Latifah reprises her role from Barbershop 2: Back in Business as sassy stylist Gina Norris, who has now moved down to Atlanta. When her annoying boss (Kevin Bacon) at the fancy salon where she works goes too far, Gina decides to set up her own business, bringing along the shampoo girl (Alicia Silverstone) and many of their clients. In her new beauty shop, women have a lot on their mind and they’re not afraid to speak out about it. So, the premise is pretty much just a female version of Barbershop. Barbershop appealed to everyone and it was fairly interesting to watch. Beauty Shop is the exact opposite and it’s just not as interesting nor as funny to watch. The characters aren’t as good and some are just bad stereotypes. The dialog is also pretty weak and the film just doesn’t work sometimes. In this type of film, if the characters aren’t interesting then the film is dead. Luckily, Queen Latifah has a likable personality and she carries the film by herself. It doesn’t make the film good but she did save it from being a complete disaster. She’s not as good as Ice Cube but can still carry her own film. The rest of the actors are only okay though they seem to be having a good time and this helps. Alicia Silverstone gives a decent performance as Lynn. Her really annoying accent takes away from the performance though. Andie MacDowell’s role is pretty small, which is a good thing since her performance isn’t very good. Kevin Bacon gives a funny performance as Jorge. Unfortunately, he isn’t in the film very much. The rest of the actors aren’t very memorable and they aren’t worth mentioning. Billie Woodruff does a bad job of directing and he should seriously stick to directing music videos, if that. He just doesn’t try anything new or interesting. He keeps the pace sluggish and he just follows a normal routine.
