    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.

    The film's potshots are perfectly aimed.
  4. 70
    Irresistibly silly.
  5. 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. Pleasing piffle.

    How nice to see a new comic lead (Ferguson) with the confidence not to hog the screen.
  10. 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.
  11. (Ferguson is) so cheeky and effeminate, he becomes more of a caricature than an actual person.
  12. 50
    Never quite attains takeoff velocity.
  13. 50
    Has its share of laughs.

    What saves it is that it's lighter than mousse and is animated by a handful of engaging performers.
  15. An innocuous, hit-and-miss affair.

    As light as a squirt of styling mousse.

    Does a lot of little stuff right, and it sparkles at times.

    Enough already with the faux documentary!
  19. 30
    A sub-sitcom stretched to an interminable 85 minutes.
  20. Laughless, brainless, styleless, and clueless.

    An inept comedy.
