Quotes

Mercedes: [after finding out Lynn would be working in the shop] You tryin' to do a little too much around here, OK? You ain't trying to lighten up the place, you's trying to *whiten* up the place! So here's what I'm gonna do, Gina. I'm gonna let you and little miss Blue Ridge here have the shop. Do your thing, go on girl, do your thing because I can't be a part of this, OK. Porsche, are you rollin'?
Porsche: Yeah, I ain't gonna be able to do it either.
Lynn: Gina, I didn't mean to run them out.

A Fun Comedy!
23 December 2005 | by See all my reviews

This movie is a spin-off sequel to Barberer Shop 2: Back in Business. Gina is a hairstylist who opens up a beauty shop full of employees and customers more interested in speaking their minds than getting a cut.

Latifah does it again! Her charm lights up the screen. Gina's business starts off bad. Her own shop just looks bad. Luckily, her friends help her clean up the place and that's where she hires employees. She gets one of her white friends in the other shop to help her work there. Some of her black friends comes to help.

This is one of those comedies that doesn't uses f-words. The acting from Latifah, Woodard, Silverstone, and Bacon are great. Actually, I've never seen Bacon act like that in his entire film career. It's funny to see that. Bacon's character then gets jealous because Gina is doing much better than he has expected. The jokes are funny in this film.

If you just want to see a feel-good film, here it is!
