I DON'T UNDERSTAND ALL THE FUSS ABOUT BLOW DRY. IT WAS PURE ENTERTAINMENT AND THAT'S ALL IT WAS MEANT TO BE. DON'T GET CAUGHT UP IN HOW AUTHENTIC THE ACCENTS ARE...PAY ATTENTION TO WHAT IS SAID. PAY ATTENTION TO THE STORY LINE. WHICH I THOUGHT WAS GOOD. THE STORY WAS MEANT TO MAKE YOU THINK A LITTLE ABOUT RELATIONSHIPS. PAST LOVES AND NEW ONES. CH

Chris Null lives up or down to his name - when a critic cannot even tell that one of the top billed characters is playing a yank and not a brit, he obviously needs to concentrate on the job at hand, that is, criticize positively and put his cell phone in "call you back" mode. Obviously, something else distracted our intrepid reviewer and he phoned in this review - if you worked for my paper, it'd be"send the sod to cover the garbagemen's strike".This is a delightful comedy with a good cast - even Josh Hartnett, who I usually find wooden in his delivery, manages to bring a "gosh, gee whiz" youthful quality to Brian character despite the uneven accent, although I must say that I spotted a Yorkshire accent at the film's beginning. Between Alan Rickman, Natasha Richardson, Rachael Griffiths and Bill Nighy we have an excellent crew to get this peek at the goings on at the Hairdressers competitions. Had this movie been made in the US, I would probably have passed on it but when I saw the actors involved, my curiosity was piqued and I'm glad I watched it. Warren Clarke does a great turn as the lord mayor of the town who morphs into the consumate emcee by the close of the competition. I also loved the small very supportive role that Rosemary Harris has as Daisy,- way to go Aunt May.The blend of comedy and emotional drama with one of them dying of cancer lent a poignant edge to the tale. Well luv, tirah and enjoy!Lots of laughs and a few tears.
