The Salon (2007)
Critic Consensus: Having been delayed several years, The Salon's pop culture references are stale and its story and characters were better done in the Barbershop series.

Critic Reviews for The Salon
At least Norbit tried to come up with fresh new awfulness instead of idling in these familiar old ruts.
After scripting both Barbershops, writer-director Mark Brown appears to have exhausted his ability to create new and interesting characters to inhabit The Salon.
Despite all the stock characters and scenarios, Fox and company manage to bring things to life. And cut some hair.
The best scenes in Barbershop featured incisive discussions of current events. Here, the closest brush with topicality is a reference to Eddie Griffin.
A feeble dramedy about a Baltimore beauty shop where someone should come in to sweep up the clichés.
Audience Reviews for The Salon
Let me say that every one in this film is looking good ya heard. the kid in the film set it over the top would like to see more of the kid in part 2.Vivca look good as a mom the boy match's perfectly' I heard a lot about this film so let's get it to the theater soon i just hope the July 4 release is for real. I meet the Dabier in Baltomore and he told me all about the film. He also told me about his up coming role's on The Shield the role of rebound on FX and guest starring role on HOUSE where he play's a 10 yr old cancer patient this show is on Fox I think this kid is on he way.I also heard the kid can rap my people out here in N.Y say the kid have some skills i see the kid name on the Billboard music contest 3th place in rap & hip hop he beat out people adults from all over the world he will have 1 song on the billboard compilation album.
I love Vivica so much that is why I am so sad that this movie was so disappointing. Too campy and a Beautyshop rip off. V is so much better than this. Tragic.
I only got to watch part of this... so not really sure if I like it or not but what I seen was good:)... so I give it 2 1/2 stars...LOL:)
