We gave it a C

Screenwriter Simon Beaufoy (”The Full Monty”) returns to his working class small town roots. ”Roots” as in pigmented filaments: The farce stars Alan Rickman as a fallen hotshot hairdresser bent on winning the coveted Silver Scissors at England’s National Hairdressing Championship. To ‘do so, he joins shear forces with his lesbian ex wife (Natasha Richardson) and their apprentice barber son (”Here on Earth”’s Josh Hartnett).
