A grizzled old barber (Ratzenberger) is forced by circumstances to hire a woman (Cole) at his manly-man barbershop. He shows his soft side and opens his heart a little. She finds new love with a local barista (McRae). The new hair-cutting team manages to turn around the failing business, and their unscrupulous landlord gets what’s coming to him. The script is exactly as soft-edged as it sounds. The stakes are low, and you’ll know every turn that’s coming, but criticizing this attractively shot trifle feels like kicking a puppy.
