Critic Reviews

  1. 60
    As in the other two movies, the plot is a thin cardboard box used to carry an assortment of observational doughnuts--in this case, estrogen-fueled shop talk about race, men, and the politics of looking good.

    This has the power to unite a female audience ready and willing to overlook its supposed weaknesses.
  3. It's a boisterous and amiable movie but not, in the end, a very funny one.
  4. 50
    Breezy, sporadically funny.
  5. 50
    Beauty Shop's shtick gets old and tired pretty quickly, but a breezy tone and air of easygoing likeability carry it a long way.
  6. Plays like a pilot for a TV sitcom. It sets up enough story threads for an entire season yet nothing much actually happens during the 105-minute running time.
  7. The story and humor are so tame the movie barely merits No More Tears.
  8. 50
    Mildly amusing and occasionally laugh-out-loud funny, with much of its humor playing off foolish white folks and gay stereotypes.
  9. Spends too much time being convivial and not enough time looking for the kind of real conflict that begets a good comedy.
  10. There's an amiability that permeates the movie and carries it through most of the rough patches and split ends.
  11. Queen Latifah's warmly formidable presence drives this amiable but poky comedy.
  12. A spin-off of a sequel... It doesn't even try to be different, because it assumes the moviegoer wants only the same-ol' and then offers even less.

    Predictable, corny, sometimes wooden, but always interesting comedy-drama.

    Just don't watch. It's that simple. Terrible script. It makes it so abysmal to the point were there's no point to watch. Take Just don't watch. It's that simple. Terrible script. It makes it so abysmal to the point were there's no point to watch. Take it at your own risk. Full Review »
