Blow Dry | 2001 | R | - 6.5.4

The British Hair Dressing Federation is having its annual competition, which is just enough to bring together a family of stylists who've been torn apart since the mother left her husband and son for a woman. With Hugh Bonneville, Rachael Leigh Cook, Rachel Griffiths, Josh Hartnett, Heidi Klum, Bill Nighy and Alan Rickman. [1:45]

SEX/NUDITY 6 - Mild kissing. We see a woman with her legs wrapped around a man's hips, and then she stands up, pulls off her dress (she's standing in her bra and thong underwear) and asks the man to clip her pubic hair into the shape of a heart (later the man comments on the "love heart" he made for her). Two women share a toast, kiss, and then talk about going to bed together. We see a woman in only a towel standing in front of a man; we see her bare back and shoulders, and from the man's reaction it's implied he can see her genitals. A woman wears an outfit that reveals her bare breasts but covers her nipples (with pasty-type thingies). We see a completely naked woman whose skin has been painted. A painted naked woman in a robe opens her robe and hugs another woman. Two women kiss, and a man kisses a man on the cheek. Some cleavage.

VIOLENCE/GORE 4 - A man fires a few shots at another man but no one is hit or hurt. In a few scenes we see several covered corpses getting hair cuts; one corpse sits up and burps. A character is slowly dying of cancer throughout the movie (we see her hair falling out and watch her vomit). A man sets part of a woman's hairpiece on fire but she's not hurt.

LANGUAGE 5 - Five F-words, some anatomical references, a few scatological references, several mild obscenities, a few religious profanities.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
