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.
