The first trailer for “Beauty Shop” didn’t really tell much other than Queen Latifah runs a beauty shop and things will go sort of like the “Barbershop” series of movies. The latest trailer, however, shows what is shaping up to be a pretty funny movie.

It seems Gina (Latifah) moves to Atlanta and is working for this fancy-shmancy hairdresser in the likes of Jorge (played to the hilt by Kevin Bacon). When he starts taking credit for her work, she decides to open her own beauty shop, brings in a cast of funny characters as her own hairdressers, including the likes of Lynn (Alicia Silverstone) who used to work with her over at Jorge’s, and now she is developing her own reputation in the hair industry.

The jokes seem to be a lot of what you’d expect for this “Barbershop” offshoot, and I laughed quite a bit during the trailer. Hopefully they aren’t the only jokes.

That’s it for this preview! I’m The Dude on the Right!! L8R!!!
