User Reviews

Fast paced entertainment, lots of laughs and emotions
27 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Mark Brown the man behind MGM's Barbershop franchise brings us a more sensitive although equally funny movie about the struggles of a single woman with a demanding job and a cute 6 year-old to take care of. The recipe for her success: she's honest and always in a good mood. Until a lawyer from the City council walks in to announce he closes the Salon down. But he's the SEXIEST man on earth. Mixed emotions, feuds among staff, kid going astray. Everything seems to fall apart in her life... Vivica Fox's performance is magnificent. She is just adorable. The very talented Terrence Howard plays a brutal husband, Brooke Burns and Greg Germann are great in cameo parts. The editing is brilliant, the photography colorful; the movie is fast paced, the jokes are sharp. Two hours of pleasure and pure talent. Look for it and enjoy!
