Top Critic Reviews
Fresh: This movie just does take what seems like a kind of a superficial topic and really does go into it with great depth.
- A.O. Scott, At the Movies, Monday, October 12, 2009
Fresh: Good Hair, directed by longtime Rock collaborator Jeff Stilson, is such a rollicking, thoroughly entertaining ride that it's easy to take for granted just how easy Rock makes it look.
- Ann Hornaday, Washington Post, Friday, October 16, 2009
Fresh: Rock fronts this informative rummage through the $9 billion US black hair industry in a style much like his stand-up comedy: hilarious, insightful and charming enough to let him get away with the flammable stuff.
- Cath Clarke, Time Out, Thursday, June 24, 2010
Niche doc on black womens' obsession with their hair which skirts around some of the tricky issues - Rock is a lot more restrained than in his stand-up and bottles out on the key question of why black women want to look like white movie stars of old ? Ultimately, it raises a lot more questions than it satisfactorily answers.
