Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Barbershop 2: Back in Business does everything a good sequel should -- it brings back the characters you want to see, recreates the atmosphere, and tries not to do too much. The first Barbershop was a pleasure because it featured an occasionally volatile cross-section of Chicago African-Americans co-existing in a warm communal setting, but also because it refused to let these characters off the hook, calling them out on behavior that might go unchecked in a lesser film. Playing that devil's advocate voice again is Cedric the Entertainer as Eddie, the salty-haired tonsorial curmudgeon who instigates such racially self-deprecating smack talk as calling the Washington, D.C., sniper the "Jackie Robinson of crime." It echoes a similar passage in the first film in which Eddie denounces Rosa Parks as merely tired, rather than a civil rights pioneer. Unfortunately, the barbershop chatter is less incisive and less frequent than in the first film, and this tepidness carries over to the character arcs as well. Everybody's back from the first film, but they've got less to do and less to distinguish themselves as individuals. Of the new additions to the cast, Queen Latifah is memorable enough to have inspired the distaff third installment of the series, Beauty Shop (2005). Kenan Thompson is also memorable, but for the wrong reasons -- as Calvin's annoying nephew who uses nepotism to score a chair, Thompson sticks out like a sore thumb. Barbershop 2 is a little too comfortable to be as truthful as the first, but as sequels go, it holds up just fine.

    Barbershop 2 Cuts a little bit deeper towards your scalp.

    I loved the first "Barbershop" but to me the sequel has a lot more in depth with its characters and we learn a little more about each one and how they have improved since the first film. If "Back in Business" has any flaws, it's that there is not enough action inside the barbershop, where most of the action took place in the first film. The movie is a bit of a repeat of the first movie (the barbershop is threatened by closure, this time by competition). There is a little more drama with "Back in Business" that never slows the film down a little drama never hurt anyone, did it? Either way, I did thoroughly enjoy it because it sprinkles some soul-pleasing themes about community, loyalty, and ethnic harmony. Queen Latifah makes a great addition to the cast, as the sharp-tongued proprietor of a beauty salon next door. Ice Cube, who I think has come along way, portrayed his character realistically and likeable but sometimes appear wooden at times. There is also a hilarious scene where the Alderman tries to have a photo opportunity in the barbershop and everything goes wrong. What’s New to Barbershop 2 is the back story telling how Cedric The Entertainer's character came to be at the barbershop and the experiences of the barbershop back in the 50s and 60s (reminded me of an old "Good Times" episode). These scenes are well done and tells us whey Cedric The Entertainer's character is allowed to do virtually nothing at the barbershop. There are so many other good characters: Isaac (Troy Garity), Terri (Eve), Jimmy (Sean Patrick Thomas)... Too bad so many of the supporting characters rely on stereotypes. For instance, we know that the Alderman is corrupt and a pervert within seconds of seeing him, and that the ridiculously uptight-looking white man sitting next to Eddie on the train is going to say something stupid and ignorant. During that part I just shook my head, for some reason we are unable to stay away from those predicament. 'Barbershop 2: Back in Business' doesn't offer us anything new as far as content but I will recommend it because the shop scenes are just plain funny and sweet just like the first film.
