Editorial Reviews

From the producers of Soul Food comes this "warm, generous" (The New York Times) taleabout a Chicago barbershop where razor-sharp comedy never goes out of style! Starring Ice Cube, Anthony Anderson, Sean Patrick Thomas, Eve and Cedric the Entertainer, Barbershop is both a "sweet, life-affirming movie" (N.Y. Daily News) and outrageous, bust-a-gut fun!Calvin (Ice Cube) is a would-be entrepreneur with big plans and running his family's barbershop isn't one of them. But when he impulsively sells the shop to a shady loan shark, he soon realizes just how important the neighborhood parlor is to him and just how far he'll go to get it back!

5.0 out of 5 stars Eat your heart out Jessie Jackson. October 23, 2002
With the terrible smear review that was given by Jessie Jackson and others on this politically incorrect film, it only seem fitting to view this myself and see what the fuss was over.This is a great film. Honest, fresh, funny, emotional, soul sturring and just great plain entertaining. In this new modern world with movies that have to have special effects or sex scenes that have nothing to do with the story or mass murders with lots of blood and guts, it's refreshing to see a motion picture that is based on just a good script and actors that can deliver and keep the audience transfixed on the screen. Now that is talent! You will not be disappointed by this film unless of course your part of the modern generation that is basically brain dead and won't know anything about culture unless in came in the form of a drug.One of the great things about this movie is "thinking for yourself, America." Again, this is a great film for ALL people.

Renting this movie last weekend was the first time I had actually seen it, and I can't believe Jesse Jackson and his followers actually took offense to the lines referring to Rosa Parks and the Civil Rights movement in it. Of all people you would expect to get the point, and have the poetry of the script revealed to!
The point of the entire movie can be summed up in a monologue by Cedric the Entertainer (who is about as good as it gets in this role and in this movie), where he says the barbershop--which the owner (Ice Cube's character), while caught in a moral dilemma, is preparing to sell--is more than just a place where brothers can get their hair cut. Each and every barbershop in every city and inner city in America, from Harlem to Oakland (and around the world too; I've been to several African-owned shops in Germany, Holland and Italy), is like Sam's bar on CHEERS: they are "the Black man's country club". And in that country club, a brother can get a line, a skin-fade, a shape-up, a little trim of the beard or goatee...and rediscover the royalty of his inner being while in conversation with friends and strangers about virtually anything. As a matter of fact, the beauty of the so-called controversial lines in the movie about Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King (not to mention those about Rodney King and O.J. Simpson) triumphantly proclaim one of the best things about the Barbershop: where else can Black men hold such strong, divergent or even culturally iconoclastic opinions and have them be respected--or even heard?
The movie is a little short on character development. The sub-plot starts getting too ridiculous after the first fifteen minutes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Barbershop September 22, 2002
Barbershop is a very good look into the epicenter of the urban community, or what many recognize as the congregation center for male communication. This feature film from the team who brought us Soul Food, weaves the largest plot (keeping or selling the handed-down establishment) to the smallest plot (the bumbling antics of two very bad crooks). In the end, viewers will leave Barbershop with a belly full of laughs and a heart full of love.
The plot centers on Ice Cube's character that inherits the barbershop from his deceased father. Recognizing the tremendous debt that he is now responsible for, he can only see the shop as a burden. Ignoring the real value the barbershop holds as an age-old institution in the community, he accepts an offer from a neighborhood loan shark who plans to turn the barbershop into a strip joint.
With a superbly talented and diverse cast, Barbershop features some notable performances. Cedric the Entertainer reaches new comic heights as the 70-year-old barber turned mentor to the crew of "Gen-X" barbers. Rapstress Eve plays the only female barber with the occasional stank attitude that arises from either someone in the shop drinking her apple juice or the actions of her cheating boyfriend. Stepping out of his typical tough-guy characters, Ice Cube also hits the jackpot with this juicy role as a tormented man always looking for that next big break.
Watching the film and hearing the dialogue between the characters will remind male viewers of past barbershop experiences from childhood to adulthood. These experiences include everything from the older men who are fixtures within the barbershop, to the heated "topic of the day" that everyone weighs in on. And of course, no comment is ever spoken in soft tones.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well Worth It January 2, 2003
When Barbershop first came out, I was a bit skeptical. I didn't know how well Ice Cube could act, and didn't know how long a movie about a barbershop could hold my interest.
I was pleasantly surprised.
In Barbershop, Ice Cube plays Calvin Palmer, a barber who took over his father's barbershop when he passed away. The shop is in a lot of debt, and with his wife expecting, Calvin has to do something to get some money. So he sells the shop to a shady loan shark, Lester Wallace (Keith David). When he realizes how much the shop means to the community, and himself, he has to get it back.
Now, it may not sound like much there, but Barbershop is truly a good movie. It seems as though the main theme of Calvin selling the shop takes a backseat to the conversation and interaction in the shop itself. This is a good thing. The supporting characters in the shop are both believable and likeable. Sean Patrick Thomas plays Jimmy James, an egocentric know-it-all with a smooth haircut. Michael Ealy is Ricky Nash, a two-time felon who is given the opportunity to clean up his act. Eve, the rapper, plays Terri, a sharp-tongued girl who's not afraid to get up in someone's face. And Cedric the Entertainer's performance as Eddie, who worked with Calvin's father, ranks among one of the most enjoyable performances of 2002. On the whole, it is the supporting cast, not Ice Cube, that makes this movie more than just average.
What detracts from Barbershop is a slow-moving side plot about two guys (Anthony Anderson and Lahmard Tate) stealing an ATM from a convenience store down the street from Calvin's. Both actors are good, but the whole thing was silly and largely unnecessary. Its relevance doesn't become clear until the end of the film.
Overall, Barbershop was surprisingly good. It elicited more than a few laughs from me, and is sure to appeal to anyone. With a great supporting cast and a dynamic, funny script, Barbershop is well worth adding to your collection.
