Critic Reviews

    Reviewed by: Kevin Maynard
    Crawford's such a good-hearted guy, you can't help but want a cut from his clippers.
  2. Aims to do nothing but please, and it accomplishes its modest aim with charm and intelligence.
  3. 70
    The film's potshots are perfectly aimed.
  4. Rolling Stone
    Reviewed by: Peter Travers
    Irresistibly silly.
  5. Los Angeles Times
    Reviewed by: Kenneth Turan
    A cheerful and smart mock documentary about hairdressing and Hollywood that knows enough not to take itself too seriously.
  6. More a sampling of previous crowd-pleasers...than a fashion statement all its own.
  7. One of those bright ideas for a TV sketch that convinces someone it's too good to waste on the small screen. It's not.
  8. USA Today

    Pleasing piffle.
  9. As it rubs our noses in our own fascination with vanity and the silliest values in life, it's charming enough to make us like it.

    (Ferguson is) so cheeky and effeminate, he becomes more of a caricature than an actual person.
  11. 60
    How nice to see a new comic lead (Ferguson) with the confidence not to hog the screen.
  12. Reviewed by: Jay Carr
    What saves it is that it's lighter than mousse and is animated by a handful of engaging performers.
  13. 50
    Never quite attains takeoff velocity.
  14. New York Post
    Reviewed by: Lou Lumenick
    Has its share of laughs.
  15. Reviewed by: Ted Gideonse
    Enough already with the faux documentary!
  16. An innocuous, hit-and-miss affair.
  17. Reviewed by: Robert Horton
    Does a lot of little stuff right, and it sparkles at times.
  18. 50
    As light as a squirt of styling mousse.
  19. Laughless, brainless, styleless, and clueless.
  20. 30
    A sub-sitcom stretched to an interminable 85 minutes.
  21. Miami Herald
    Reviewed by: Phoebe Flowers
    An inept comedy.
