Take my word for it, there’s really no better place to see the new Chris Rock documentary Good Hair than in a midtown Manhattan cinema at 7.45pm on a Friday night. Why? Because the atmosphere in the theatre was just about as entertaining as what was taking place on the giant screen in front of us.

Good Hair, an hilarious [hair-larious?] look at the trials and tribulations of the eternal quest for straight hair, as pursued a large proportion of America’s black community, was greeted with hollers of agreement, hand-clapping, and voracious cheering at various points, which was more than fitting fun cast of characters that Rock assembled for it, including Ice T and the girls out of Salt n Pepa, all of whom put my thirty second mess-up of my hair each morning to absolute shame.
