    It may not be as hearty as the first but the film is still good regardless. Barbershop 2: Back in Business brings even more humor and melodrama to keep audiences entertained and happy about their experience. 4/5

    Not as good as the original, but I still loved it. Plus my girl Queen Latifah got to put Cedric Entertainer in his place! "Wadin' in the water!" LOL
