The Big Tease Before he got his own late-night chat show on CBS following David Letterman, Scottish comic Craig Ferguson starred in, co-wrote and produced this uneven but generally funny 1999 mockumentary poking fun at the beauty industry. As the tag line says: He Saw. He Combed. He Conquered. Ferguson plays Crawford Mackenzie, a Scottish hairdresser who is invited to the World Hairdresser International Federation contest in Los Angeles with a documentary crew in tow. But when he gets to La-La Land, he discovers that he was invited to be a member of the audience, not the competition. Armed only with his scissors, blow dryer, comb and brush Crawford manages to get himself into the competition. In Japan, the film was known as Scissors Cup.
