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!




  • I great and underrated movie!

    By Little Forrest in the Big City
    This is one of my favorite screwball comedies of the 1990's. Fran really delivers. There are so many fantastic one-liners and Lucille Ball-esque moments. A guaranteed laugh out loud film.
