Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It's the songs that make this film worth watching. Without them, it's a pretty uneven narrative that can be awfully slow at times."
‑ James Plath, Movie Metropolis
"With the possible exception of A Hard Day's Night, it gets my vote as the all-time best rock film."
‑ Matt Brunson, Creative Loafing
"Hair is a zany blend of song, dance and parody with its giddy portrait of hippies."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"Treat Williams delivered a great performance as Berger, and showshe doesn't deserve to be stuck in TV movies like he is now."
‑ Matt Easterbrook, Matt's Movie Reviews
"Milos Forman's screen version of the landmark musical production is uneven, though there's no doubt it would have been better received had been made earlier, during the Vietnam War."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"My best performance as a movie star...if you can find me!"
‑ Eric Lurio, Greenwich Village Gazette
"Has more going for it than against it, not in the least the fact that Forman proves to have a natural affinity for filming musical numbers."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"Hair benefited from the creative freedom of '70s cinema...at its best when it's most creatively subversive... [Blu-ray]"
‑ Peter Canavese, Groucho Reviews
"Treat Williams in one of his better roles"
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"Toe-tappin' hippie-shakin' fun."
‑ Scott Weinberg, eFilmCritic.com
