Editorial Reviews

The Salon stars Vivica A. Fox (Jenny) as the inheritor of a neighborhood beauty salon. Jenny is being forced to sell her shop to the Department of Water and Power (DWP) due to eminent domain. She has not told the other tenants in the salon and is trying to build a case to save the shop. The DWP is represented by a hot shot attorney (Darrin Dewitt Henson) who takes a liking to her and a romance begins. This is a fresh look on the inside of a salon where anything can happen.

If you're going to portray people nd their lifestyles at least give them dignity.

Sorry to disappoint, but this movie sucked so bad, halfway through it I started fast forwarding through it.

"The Salon" is a perfectly good movie with wonderful dialogue and compelling characters.

**1/2

It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that "The Salon" is really just "Barbershop" on estrogen. Like that earlier prototype, "The Salon" - which takes place in a Baltimore beauty parlor run by the beautiful Vivica A. Fox - is essentially a freeform series of conversations held together by the flimsiest of plot devices (in this one, an unfeeling bureaucracy wants to tear down the shop to make way for a parking lot). Unfortunately, "The Salon" is a pretty wan imitation of the original, lacking the stinging wit and biting social commentary that made "Barbershop" such a crossover success in its time.

While there is a certain liveliness to the verbal jousting and a notable energy in most of the performances, the comic banter often comes across as catty and mean-spirited rather than funny and insightful. The screenplay by Mark Brown (adapted from the stage play by Shelley Garrett) works overtime trying to be clever and smart about race relations, sexual issues, and life in the African American community, but it really isn't telling us anything we haven't heard countless times before in films on those same topics. Moreover, the characters themselves often verge on the stereotypical (with the prancing gay hair stylist as probably the most egregious and offensive example). And to top it all off, the movie is saddled with an ending that is, perhaps, the worst case of a deus ex machina in any film in recent memory.

There are indeed some genuinely touching scenes embedded in all the brazen one-liners and zingers, and there are a few laugh-out-loud moments when the sassiness and sarcasm manage to hit the comic bull`s-eye at which the writer is aiming. But more often than not, the humor misses its mark and falls harmlessly onto the hair-covered floor.

The Salon was very great. Kym Whitley and Vivica A. Fox did a great performance. However, I felt that it could of been maybe a sequel, especially discussing what happenss with Monica Calhoun's character ordeal with her husband. But overall, HISTORICALLY BEAUTIFUL.

I thought the movie was pretty good. Vivica Fox's hair looked good. I've never seen her with a short haircut before. Taral Hicks was looking good. I'm glad to see she's still getting acting roles because she had disappeared for awhile after Belly movie. Monica Calhoun was looking good. I didn't like the relationship between her and Terrence Howard and the only weak thing about this movie was that Terrence wasn't shown more in the movie and him and Monica should've had more dialouge together. In one scene, he took Monica's car from her when she went to pick him up at the gas station where he worked at because he was mad at her for being late to come get him for his lunch break. I was upset that Monica wasn't given a chance to break up with Terrence and to get her car back from Terrence. R&B singer Gerald Levert had a small part in the movie. He was a customer at the salon. The scene he was in, 3 young black girls came into the shop hollering and asking him could they get his autograph. He asked them what their names were and 2 of the girls said Porscha and Mercedes. He said why do black people always name their kids after cars they can't afford? LOL. Kim Whitley was also in the movie as a hairstylist. Her and Gerald went to the same high school Shaker in Cleveland, Ohio. Kim is silly.

There's no doubt that this is a copycat of the male version Barber Shops, but this time with the ladies and the lovable, stereotype gay stylist, and the love/hate relationship between Jenny and Michael (the government lawyer in the expensive business suit and the sportscar). I liked it and found loads of laughs, and enjoyed the conversations about civil rights, and why black men are attracted to white women. One of Jenny's longtime workers has to punch out the pimp in the end after he was pushing around his working prostitutes. Even the meek hair stylist finally stands up to her man. Old Percy kind of steals the show - watch the movie and you'll see what I mean. The music and dancing were great.

Jenny is being forced to sell her shop to the Department of Water and Power (DWP) due to eminent domain, and is being pressured into accepting the money they've offered for her property. Regardless of the legal advice Jenny receives, she refuses to let the corporate giant take the one remaining pillar of her inner city neighborhood. She declines the money and decides to take on the DWP in court, all the while keeping the battle hidden from her outrageous employees and clientele. "The Salon" is a perfectly good movie with wonderful dialogue and compelling characters.

JENNY IS BEING FORCED TO SELL HER SHOP TO THE DEPARTMENT OF WATER AND POWER DUE TO THE EMINENT DOMAIN, AND MUST ACCEPT THE MONEY SHE IS OFFERED. YET REGARDLESS OF THE LEGAL ADVICE SHE RECIEVES, SHE REFUSES TO LET THE GIANT ORGANIZATION TAKE ONE REMAINING PILLAR OF HER INNER CITY NEIGHBORHOOD, DECIDING INSTEAD TO TAKE ON THE DWP IN COURT. A CLASSIC TALE OF THE UNDERDOG, THE SALON IS A FRESH LOOK AT THE INSIDE OF A SALON AND THE INNER CITY NEIGHBORHOOD WHERE THE UNEXPECTED HAPPENS. ENJOY THE RIDE AT...THE SALON, WHERE YOU GO TO GET MORE THAN JUST A HAIRCUT.
