When hair stylist Peaches (Mo'Nique) arrives in Beverly Hills to get reacquainted with her sister, Angela (Kellita Smith of "The Bernie Mac Show"), sparks fly! Angela finds out Peaches owes $50,000 in back taxes and is on the run. So the two sisters join forces to fight off a pesky rival salon owner in a show-stopping competition to win a cash prize for Peaches and bragging rights at the city's annual hair show.

Review:

Hair Show is a lively and funny ensemble comedy set in the busy, high-pressure milieu of an upscale hair salon. As in Barbershop or Empire Records, a handful of idiosyncratic characters share the shop's load but are individually defined by peculiar obsessions or circumstances. Jun Ni (Keiko Agena), for instance, just wants to learn to cook for the husband who adores her yet who is starving because of her failures in the kitchen. Peaches (Mo'Nique) is trying to save her bacon from the IRS agents hounding her for $50,000 in back taxes. At the center of the story is Peaches' rivalrous relationship with sister Angela (Kellita Smith), who took a sizable inheritance from her late grandmother (Peaches got no cash from Grandma's will) and built the salon in which brassy Peaches might be the most talented stylist. Crisply directed by Leslie Small and co-produced by Magic Johnson, Hair Show is lightly but genuinely rewarding. --Tom Keogh
