Reviews
Mine: Very funny. This takes many of the cliches of the western and applies them to a hair dressing contest in England. Often funny, sometimes touching, and at times quite sad. Really absurd, but the top notch cast pulls it off. Alan Rickman is a stand out.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: The annual British Hairdressing Championship comes to Keighley, a town where Phil and son Brian run a barbershop and Phil's ex-wife Shelly and her lover Sandra run a beauty salon. Phil and Shelly haven't talked in ten years, since she bolted; she's just found out her cancer is terminal; and, Ray Roberts, the reigning hairdressing champion, blows into town taunting Phil for retreating from competitive styling into barbering. Roberts also brings his daughter, Christina, who remembers Brian from when she was a little kid. Everything's set: Brian decides to enter the competition with his mom and Sandra; will Phil join in? Ray wants to win at any cost; will Christina go along?
