More of the same, but a notch lower than before. Anthony Anderson is well missed.

Desperately wanted to be as good as the first one.

Not as funny as the first, and for comedies, that's not a good sign.

I have seen the first one various times, but I think I had just caught on to this one by watching it over and over again on showtime and HBO and eventually knew all the lines. I enjoyed it, and the cast really made it worthwhile. I found it for a couple bucks and said why not? It's certainly worth a watch if you like the family oriented comedies.

Takes a dedicated and true snapshot of African-American life. But so little of its presentation is memorable. This is a haircut movie that redefines ''fade.'' Queen Latifah, as the proprietor of the ­lady's salon next door to Calvin's, brightens things up in the brief appearances that serve as symbiotic promotion for the producers' coming spin-off movie, "Beauty­ Shop." The sequel to 2003's unexpected and rousing hit offers a lot of the same elements that made the original so enjoyable, but the humor doesn't have the same freshness. Barbershop 2 is like going out for a bad meal with a group of people you love being with. You're happy to be in their company; you just wish you didn't leave feeling hungry. Given the stature and the presence that the entrepreneurial rappers-turned-film-moguls Ice Cube and Queen Latifah possess, the fizzle of their scenes is doubly disappointing. The material is hardly original, but the moment is affecting all the same. A less raucous and more serious-minded neighborhood comedy than its entertaining predecessor.

VERDICT: "Rent Worthy" - [Mixed to Negative Reaction] These films are only worth renting because of certain good things that are worth seeing, but are not worth paying at a theatre or the DVD to see due to bad things that overcome anything good. (Films that are rated 2.5 stars)

Has some laughs but overall this was a very unnecessary and disappointing sequel

Very funny movie! Nearly as good as the first Barbershop. I thought it was just as funny as the original, but I was not quite as into the plot line of Barbershop 2. Still a good movie. Recommended if you loved the original Barbershop. =)
