When Peaches (Mo'Nique) needs to make some money to pay off debts to the IRS,
she relocates from B-more (Baltimore, that is) to Los Angeles. Once there, she
reconnects with her hairstylist sister Angie (Smith), who is attempting to fend
off a rival salon. Unfortunately, cardboard cutouts would have had more depth
than the sorry excuses for characters that Hair Show offers. The comedy
attempts to blend Barbershop 2 with Steel Magnolias, but instead
pathetically belittles Asian- and African-American cultures with hyperbolic
caricatures, and portrays all women as scheming playa haters.
