About the Movie
With a ready supply of one-liners and a delightfully retro sense of fashion, Fran Drescher (TV's The Nanny) provides the who, what, when and wear of this funny and smart comedy about a ruler from a land of tyrants and kings - and a hairdresser from Queens. Eager to make her way in the world, hairdresser Joy Miller (Drescher) gets her chance when she's sent to a modern once-upon-a-time land called Slovetzia to tutor the three children of gruff, widowed dictator Boris Pochenko (Timothy Dalton). Joy thinks she's been hired as a beautician. Boris thinks she's been hired as an able science teacher. Science or not, chemistry of another sort begins to work its magic. Joy's spirited openness blows the cobwebs off tradition-bound Slovetzia. And her resourcefulness gives Pochenko's heart a makeover... or does it? The best way to find out is to make an appointment with The Beautician and the Beast!

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Listening to Fran Drescher's nasal squawk for an entire movie is the price you'll pay to see The Beautician and the Beast. Imagine having your ear canal scoured with Brillo. Only more abrasive.
Rotten: A wildly uneven story.
I loved this movie. It has been so long I had forgotton about it. It is kind of like "Sound of Music" meets "Beauty and the beast" with a Fran twist.
Fran may have a grating voice, but you gotta give it to her. The girl's been rockin' it since Spinal Tap!
