view all

A satire of morals (and lack thereof) set in Southern California, concerning a successful hairdresser (Beatty) and the many women in his life. A notable scene with Julie Christie is set at a 1968 presidential election-night gathering. Fisher's screen debut, only one year before "Star Wars" made her famous. Has a healthy glow in places and a perky bounce, but too many split ends.

George Roundy (Warren Beatty) is a handsome, womanizing hairdresser who has a dream of opening his own business. George has one problem though and that is he likes too many different woman. George needs financial backing to open his own salon and meets Lester who says he'll help him financially get started. But George gets himself in trouble when he starts dating Felicia and he can't let his girlfriend Jill (Goldie Hawn) know. George goes to a party with Lester and discovers that Felicia, Jill and many other girlfriends are all there. George is starting to grow tired of all the lies he has to tell everyone. This 1975 movie is good, however, it's not meant for family viewing as there is a lot inappropriate language and adult action in this film.
