Where'd you get that money?
Gina, you know I don't do like that. But if a guy wants to pay my bills, I'ma let him pay my bills.
You know what, you need to shut up because you're sounding really stupid right now. You are lazy, you're wasting your life and you're wasting my time. Why don't you take your money to go buy a clue?

conventional script elevated by a talented ensemble
Barbershop spin-off finds Latifah in Atlanta where she's recognized as the city's best hair stylist even though she works for a dandy, self-absorbed shop owner (Bacon). Ambitious and fed up with his disrespect, she quits her job then branches out and opens her own shop. Despite her undeniable talent, and the support of her devoted co-workers, she still has to learn how to endure the hardships of owning and operating her own business. The plot is a little too simple, and seems set up a bit too easily, but it's likable and pleasant with an appealing, first-rate cast. Bacon has an odd but amusing supporting role, and Latifah is an ideal leading woman. Laughs aren't always consistent but they are effective, and everyone seems to be enjoying themselves. **½
