Do you have "Good Hair"?

Just updated the video, so it should show better now!

I saw this trailer the other day in a theater and thought it was absolutely hilarious.

In his documentary, Good Hair, Chris Rock covers the black community's relationship with hair from a variety of different viewpoints. Jamey and I will definitely check this out when it comes to Chicago. It
starts 10/9 in select cities.... who knows when it will come to yours!

The movies website says:
An exposé of comic proportions that only Chris Rock could pull off, GOOD HAIR visits beauty salons and hairstyling battles, scientific laboratories and Indian temples to explore the way hairstyles impact the activities, pocketbooks, sexual relationships, and self-esteem of the black community.

Director Jeff Stilson follows Chris Rock on this raucous adventure prompted by Rock's daughter approaching him and asking, "Daddy, how come I don't have good hair?" Haircare professionals, beautyshop and barbershop patrons, as well as celebrities including Ice-T, Nia Long, Paul Mooney, Raven Symoné, Dr. Maya Angelou, Salt n Pepa, Eve and Reverend Al Sharpton all candidly offer their stories and observations to Rock while he struggles with the task of figuring out how to respond to his daughter's question.
