04:07 pm: Beauty Shop
This was a great movie. Queen Latifah's character, Gina, works for Jorge (Kevin Bacon) in his hair salon. He doesn't treat her well and she finds a way to get her own salon. He becomes very unhappy when she starts being successful and takes steps to stop that. It's not just a good plot, but it covers race relations, family problems, romance, and other areas without being sappy or in your face.

I've seen it three times. The vast majority of the reviewers didn't get it, which annoyed me.

I don't remember the reviews, since I'm so far behind on the queueueue. I do remember that there was a sequel -- did you see that? Like it?

I'm not aware of a sequel to Beauty Shop. Beauty Shop is a spinoff of Barber Shop, which had a sequel.

Maybe that's what I was thinking of, because I can't find a sequel to Beauty Shop.

Thanks! This must not have been available the last time I searched for Queen Latifah on netflix. (I will watch her in anything, no matter how bad the movie or how small the part.) See? You are my Netflix Goddess!

LOL Too bad you're not in my Netflix delivery area because I dropped it into the drive-by post office box today!

Another movie we both like. I've seen it twice so far and wouldn't mind watching again.
I watched a German movie (with subtitles) yesterday that I'll write about on my blog. Didn't have high expectations, but it turned out to be very enjoyable.

Yeah, not only is she a good actress, but a major beauty company has her as a spokesperson, and she's a large woman.
