Movie Info

A smart comedy about a day in the life of a barbershop on the south side of Chicago. Calvin (Ice Cube), who inherited the struggling business from his deceased father, views the shop as nothing but a burden and a waste of his time. After selling the shop to a local loan shark, Calvin slowly begins to see his father's vision and legacy and struggles with the notion that he just sold it out.

    Barbershop really surprised me with how fun the cast and comedy was. While it's nothing truly unique, it's certainly a fun time.

    Tim Story's Barbershop is more than just a haircut. The film is a comedic, dramatic and heart-felt experience. The cast (lead by Ice Cube) were pristine in regards to humor and a tight community feel. 4.5/5

    Pretty good joint, but was it good enough for a sequel and a spinoff? Don't curr just cut my hurr. My barber's Vietnamese so I would have liked to have seen some Asians in the shop. Cedric carried this, great performance by him.
