Did Chris Rock Steal the Idea for "Good Hair"?

Did Chris Rock Steal the Idea for "Good Hair"?Submit Comment
Chris Rock's new documentary "Good Hair" is set to hit theaters this weekend (October 9th) and will give audiences a look at a $9 billion industry that focus on the hair of African-American women.

TMZ is now reporting that Regina Kimbell has filed a lawsuit against the comedian, claiming that she showed him her documentary "My Nappy Roots" on the set of Rock's TV series "Everybody Hates Chris." Kimbell sees many similarities between the two movies and is accusing Rock of stealing her idea.

Her film features celebrities discussing hair styles like the conk, the Afro, the Jheri curl and dreadlocks. Rock's film focuses more on women trying to turn their hair into something they call "good hair," which is manageable, European hair.

Kimbell is looking to collect no less than $5 million in damages.

That's the way the cookie crumbles. When you have a good idea, keep your mouth shut.

@ rabid...agreed...i've got some good song ideas still...i am wondering though...it seems any time somebody has a good idea, it gets stolen...makes me wonder if hollywood hires people to look throughout forums and steal peoples' ideas...very possible

Wouldn't surprise me synthetic.

What pisses me off even more is when you have an idea, then find out it's been done close enough to be accused of being a rip-off from your idea.

Hopefully she had registered her work at The Writer's Guild of America. They time stamp it, etc. If she has, and there are too many similarities... she may have a case. If she didn't... tough turds.

@ vwkombi...that's a good point...it's also another additional reason why i'm releasing my cd for free...regardless of if it steals anybody else's ideas, intentional or not...people obviously pay for good entertainment...the numbers go even higher when they peak higher than what they originally did...sadly, they never keep that peak up...it's why actors like leonardo dicaprio are awesome in my book...they don't star in WAY too many movies...making it more memorable and epic and fun...johnny depp can star in as many movies as he wants...he's always been great to watch...i mean the way he portrayed willy wonka was bad, i know...but he still had very funny lines...so really...search for people that actually have talent hollywood...a great place to start would be 'america's got talent' NOT! lol..no really start there...it's getting pathetic when more people that 'look' good but can't act get films

"Did Chris Rock steal the idae for "Good Hair"?"

Better question would be:

"Do you really care?"
