Plus-size comedienne Mo'Nique ("The Parkers") stars as a beautician from Baltimore who reunites with her estranged sister, an upscale hairstylist in Beverly Hills. Turns out she's on the run from the IRS and needs $50,000 right away. Conveniently, there's a big hairstyling competition coming up. Can you guess where this is leading? This urban comedy (produced by Magic Johnson) beats Queen Latifah's upcoming Beauty Shop
to theaters by a few months, but it's a pretty low-rent affair.
