Overview from movies.go.com:

This sequel to the original Barbershop stars Ice Cube as Calvin, the proprietor of an independent neighborhood barbershop in South Chicago with a clientele as outspoken as its barbers (who include Cedric the Entertainer). When corporate hair franchise Nappy Cutz moves in across the street, a battle for business begins.

 

Personal Critique: Okay, I did not want to see this movie. However, it was surprisingly---okay. I never saw the original and was still able to enjoy the ending, although I am sure you will appreciate some of what is going on more if you see the original. The beginning was veryyyyy slow to get going and some parts were extremely confusing, but there were plenty of jokes mixed in to make you laugh. However, some people will not enjoy these jokes or the movie, especially if they hate “black culture.” [I’m not sure what other words to use??] I think the message and the meaning behind the story were very good though, even if it seemed to pop up at the end.
