Movie Info

Arthur Leroldi (John Ratzenberger) runs a small-town barbershop that's steeped in tradition. When his business associate, Enzo, dies, Arthur, who is talented with shears but not bank ledgers, finds himself on the brink of losing the shop. To spruce up his business, Arthur reluctantly hires a young cosmetologist, Gloria MacIntyre (Shelly Cole), who can both cut hair and balance the books. But Gloria's recent run of bad luck may put Arthur's beloved barbershop back in jeopardy.

Audience Reviews for The Village Barbershop

  • Jul 04, 2011
    This proved to be a thoroughly enjoyable look at a small town barber undergoing a personal transformation when he hires a woman to work in his barbershop. John Ratzenberger turned in a terrific performance as Art, who is dealing with the death of his friend and business partner and who still has not gotten over the death of his wife, eleven years previously. Enter Shelly Cole as Gloria, a feisty hairdresser who turns his world upside down and who gently prods him back into the land of the living. At times a bit maudlin, and very few plot twists to mix things up could not totally detract from the good feelings one gets from this. There is a lot of subtle humor here, but the strength of the film is in the relationship and the respect that builds between these two characters. This may not be great cinema, or uplifting art, but it certainly is an entertaining story that leaves one feeling like there are still pockets of decency out there.

    John Ratzenberger (From Cheers) plays in this movie along with Shelly Cole who takes a slow moving movie and subject and turn it into something worth the 99 minutes to watch it. A ageing Barber with a shop that is slowly going broke looks for a new employee and along comes Shelly who give a old man new meaning to life. 4 1/2 stars

    This movie was fantastic! My husband and I just kind of came across this film by accident. We had noticed that John Ratzenberger was in it, and it had been a long time since we had seen his name attached to anything. Wow, were we ever amazed at the quality of this film, and at how much we enjoyed his character! As a matter of fact we got a big kick out of everyone in the film. The whole thing was VERY enjoyable.

    This was a cute little movie. If you liked 'Juno', you will probably like this.
