Some of the verbal jousts are hot, and a Laurel and Hardy routine involving a stolen ATM is fitfully hilarious, but this reminds me of a pilot for a cable sitcom.

Barbershop is a cozy place to hang out for a while, even if you don't need a little off the sides.

Perhaps because it promotes traditional values - respect women, crime doesn't pay, family comes first - the film shines in those rare scenes when it plays with received wisdom.

The comedy is less than razor sharp.

In the age of photo messaging and web chats, Barbershop is a warm-hearted reminder that there's nothing like conversation between real people.

The movie's heart is in the right place, which generates enough warmth to make one root for it.

A flat-out hilarious ensemble comedy that probably made me laugh out loud more than any other movie this year.

It's a likable venture that just misses being a lovable one.
September 13, 2002
It's funny as hell.

As a slapstick adventure, Barbershop is unfunny and unoriginal. But as a character-driven drama, Barbershop works well, with its quirky, sweet characters and authentic dialogue.
September 13, 2002
Very funny, and remarkably mature, retro-1970s ensemble comedy.
September 13, 2002
A sloppy but likable movie.
September 13, 2002
Amid the new populist comedies that underscore the importance of family tradition and familial community, one would be hard-pressed to find a movie with a bigger, fatter heart than Barbershop.
September 13, 2002
By far the most mature film to come down the pike in which the name 'Cube' appears more than once in the credits.
September 13, 2002
Entertains by providing good, lively company.
September 13, 2002
This feature debut from Tim Story would have been much better had it proceeded on a much smaller scale, with fewer barbers and more time to develop the relationships between them.
September 13, 2002
A broad, very funny, unexpectedly graceful comedy of character and community.
September 13, 2002
The characters are engaging and the story has a bustling richness.
September 13, 2002
Combines big laughs, a big heart and thoroughly winning characters.
