American Mullet Movie Review

To ignore the mullet is to ignore America -- so in case you're completely out of the loop, the mullet is a hairdo defined quite simply: short on top, long in back. Aka the sho-lo, the style is popular among a few subcultures: lesbians, country stars (and aging rockers), and, apparently, middle America freaks.

Director Jennifer Arnold interviews dozens of mullet-wearers who love the 'do along with a handful of hairdressers who condemn the thing. The mullet, it seems, isn't just a hairdo, it's a state of mind -- and as Arnold shows us, that state is probably right up there with people who wear Star Trek uniforms to work.

Unfortunately, there's not a lot of additional insight except for some good-natured fun-poking at the hairstyle that launched Michael Bolton into stardom. On DVD, it's a quick 52 minutes that are soon forgotten. I checked out the extras and found the tale of one mullet-owner's cardboard motor scooter more interesting than anything that found its way into the final cut.

Aka The Mullet Chronicles.
