Three-time Primetime Emmy® award winning actor and comedian Chris Rock (Outstanding Writing for a Variety, Music or Comedy Special, “Chris Rock: Kill the Messenger,” 2009; Outstanding Writing for a Variety or Music Program, “The Chris Rock Show,” 1999; Outstanding Variety Music or Comedy Special, “Chris Rock; Bring the Pain,” 1997) takes you on a hilariously hair-raising journey through the extreme lengths African-American women will go to for Good Hair. Inspired to make the documentary when his daughter asked him, “how come I don't have good hair,” Chris Rock set off on a raucous exposé of comic proportions visiting 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. Good Hair features appearances by Nia Long, Ice-T, Paul Mooney, Dr. Maya Angelou, Raven Symone, Salt-N-Pepa, The Reverend Al Sharpton and Eve.
Nominated for Best Documentary by IFC’s Gotham Awards, the film has been hailed by critics as “one of the funniest movies of the year” (Denver Post), “clever” (San Francisco Chronicle), “hilarious” (BET.com) and “lively, a comical journey … Rock never misses a beat” (BoxOffice Magazine). Good Hair, featuring audio commentary from Chris Rock and executive producer Nelson George, weaves its way onto DVD and digital download on February 16, 2010.
