      Movie Info

      The World Freestyle Hairdressing Championship is soon to take place in Los Angeles and Crawford has received what he thinks is an invitation to compete for the Platinum Scissors Award. So, he heads west with a British documentary crew in tow. After arriving he finds that he was invited merely as a guest to observe the competition. The hairdresser will not be assuaged; in finest Scottish tradition, it's either place in the competition or go down cutting, moussing and blowing dry.

        Winning little comedy. Ferguson is immensely likable in the lead.

        An utterly ridiculous mockumentary! But. I can't lie. I loved every silly minute of it. Without Craig Ferguson as the leading man, I suspect that this movie would have fallen short. But, fortunately, he kept me laughing throughout the film. (Not to mention the fact that he looks extremely cute in a kilt.) Long live Scotland!

        A favorite. Call me nuts, but I like this movie for its hilarity.

        Light hearted, very amiable fake documentary following a Scottish hairdresser's entry into a prestigious hair dressing competition in L.A. Might have been too light for it's own good, but Ferguson is so ingratiating that he makes it a joy to watch.
