Blow Dry

Blow Dry ★★ 2000 (R)

Comedic possibilities and family healing ensue when the National British Hairdressing Championships come to a sleepy English town. An odd assortment of Brits and Yanks populate this familiar tale, and even dependable Rickman can't save the film, whose destination is obvious from even the newspaper ads—take “The Full Mon- ty,” replace strippers with hairdressers and, voila: “Blow Dry.” Written by Simon Beaufoy, author of (you guessed it) “The Full Monty.” Director Breathnach fared better with his previous film, the Irish comedy “I Went Down.” 91m/C VHS, DVD . GB US Alan Rickman, Natasha Richardson, Rachel Grif-fiths, Rachael Leigh Cook, Josh Hartnett, Bill Ni-ghy, Warren Clarke, Rosemary Harris, Hugh Bonneville, Peter McDonald, Heidi Klum, Michael McElhatton; D: Paddy Breathnach; W: Simon Be-aufoy; C: Cian de Buitlear; M: Patrick Doyle.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
