The banter is tighter and funnier, and Calvin's musings on the importance of community seem more heartfelt.

This smart, feisty comedy is still ghetto-fabulous enough to make you laugh until your short, back and sides ache.

Barbershop 2 achieves what most sequels can only wish for: it's actually much better than the original film.

Barbershop 2: Back in Business is the second episode of a big-screen sit-com. It may be three times longer, but it is also three times funnier.
