From the producers of Soul Food comes this "warm, generous" (The New York Times) taleabout a Chicago barbershop where razor-sharp comedy never goes out of style! Starring Ice Cube, Anthony Anderson, Sean Patrick Thomas, Eve and Cedric the Entertainer, Barbershop is both a "sweet, life-affirming movie" (N.Y. Daily News) and outrageous, bust-a-gut fun!Calvin (Ice Cube) is a would-be entrepreneur with big plans and running his family's barbershop isn't one of them. But when he impulsively sells the shop to a shady loan shark, he soon realizes just how important the neighborhood parlor is to him and just how far he'll go to get it back!
Cast & Crew
Provides enough solid, character-based amusement to put customers in the chairs and send them out content with services rendered.
[A]s funny as the original.
Heartstrings will be tugged and ribs tickled, particularly thanks to Cedric the Entertainer.
It's a warm, often funny reunion of the sassiest, chattiest characters ever to buzz a brother's head.
Just as sharply funny and as heartwarming, yet unsentimental, as the first.
The connection between the still-potent issues of the civil rights movement and the rich vs. poor economic disparities that continue today -- although 'The Man' could now be either black or white -- gives Barbershop genuine potency.
Warmhearted and surprisingly ambitious.
