Vivica A. Fox stars as Jenny, a sophisticated and hard working mother in Baltimore who runs a beauty shop. Unknown to her employees, including an overtly homosexual male character, the city is trying to take over Jenny's building, which has been in her family for years, to build a parking lot. Complicating matters is the fact that Jenny is falling for the black lawyer representing the city, played by Darrin Henson. As the hairstylists bicker among each other and with some of the beauty shop's clients and visitors, Jenny has trouble trying to balance her romantic feelings with her commitment to her business, her employees and her young son.
Despite some positive moral elements, THE SALON has a liberal pagan worldview with a very strong politically correct toward homosexuality. The movie's homosexual character is very effeminate and cracks a few crude, politically correct sexual jokes that viewers are supposed to find funny. They aren't. THE SALON is a weak, offensive movie that does not deserve much attention.
The official site for this movie says it's for the entire family, but the movie's sexual content and pro-homosexual themes are anything but family friendly, much less Christian friendly. Homosexuality is not the same thing as skin color, so laws against homosexual behavior and public intolerance for such behavior are not immoral: they are just, good, and true.
THE SALON, a small movie based on a stage play, tries to mine territory exploited earlier by the BARBERSHOP movies and BEAUTY SHOP starring Queen Latifah, but it has little of the heart of those movies. Despite some positive moral elements, the movie has a liberal pagan worldview with a very strong politically correct attitude toward homosexuality. The homosexual character is very effeminate and cracks crude, politically correct jokes viewers are supposed to find funny. THE SALON is a weak, offensive movie.
