Barbershop 2: Back in Business -- Time for another haircut -- the buzz is back in Barbershop 2. Calvin (Ice Cube), Eddie (Cedric the Entertainer), Terri (Eve), Jimmy (Sean Patrick Thomas), Issac (Troy Garity), Ricky (Michael Ealy), and Dinka (Leonard Earl Howze) are open for business again at Calvin's Barbershop, with Queen Latifah cutting up as Gina, a stylist at the beauty shop next door. Calvin is again struggling to keep his father's shop and traditions alive, this time against urban developers looking to replace "mom & pop" establishments with name-brand chains. The world changes, but some things never go out of style -- from current events and politics to relationships and love, you can still say anything you want at the barbershop.

Back Again for some more laughs on the South Side of Chicago!, 8 August 2004
Author: SonicStuart from Kansas City, MO

Barbershop 2: Back in Business

Starring: Ice Cube, Eve, Troy Garity, Michael Ealy, Sean Patrick Thomas and Queen Latifah

Genre: Comedy

Rated: PG-13

We continue the adventures with the barbers and Calvin Palmer (Ice Cube) on the South Side of Chicago. In this sequel to the 2002 hit Barbershop, Calvin's shop is threatened again but this time by a greedy developer who is opening a mega-franchise barbershop right across the street from Calvin's shop. The whole gang from the first movie is back including Eddie (Cedric the Entertainer), Terri (Eve), Jimmy (Sean Patrick Thomas), Ricky (Michael Ealy) and Isacc (Troy Garity). Also in this movie we have a new character named Gina (Queen Latifah) who is a stylist at a beauty shop next door. As Calvin does what he can to counter this threat, life goes on in the barbershop, with more of the same tart dialog and life complications in various hilarious ways as in the original. I missed Anthony Anderson and Lahmard Tate in this sequel because I thought they were hilarious in the first one but this sequel was still funny and besides at this time when this movie was filming, Anthony Anderson was busy doing Agent Cody Banks 2, Scary Movie 3, Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle and his TV-series, All About the Andersons. Just another day on the South Side of Chicago.
