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 neighbourhood salon is to him … and just how far he’ll go to get it back.

It would be a real shame if Barbershop got lumped in with all the other 'black'movies that are around.This is a great feelgood movie which combines comedy and drama to make a movie which makes you think and ultimately satisfies you.
Ice Cube plays Calvin who has inherited his fathers Barbershop in Chicago 2 years previously and is tired of not making much money,truth to tell he isnt poor its just he is into the type of get rich quick schemes which leave you poor.He sells the shop to local Mr Big Lester Wallace(KEITH DAVID) who dresses from the Shaft 1970's collection but then changes his mind.
He doesnt tell his band of fellow barbers led by Eddie(CEDRIC THE ENTERTAINER) who steals all the scenes he appears in as the old school barber,along with Jimmy -the know all college kid and feisty female barber Terri played by fellow rapper Eve who has issues over her cheating boyfriend and whoever is stealing her apple juice,there is also Ricky played by handsome newcomer MICHAEL EALY who may or not be involved in the films sub plot the hijacking of an ATM machine in which Anthony Anderson and Lahmard Tate play clueless thieves JD and Billy.Rounding out the crew is white jewish wanna be a black man Isaac Rosenberg and lovestruck African Dinka who has the hots for Terri but goes in vain.
The two pronged story of Calvins problems and the heist of the ATM dovetail nicely at the end and this is a well acted ,well made movie which should deserve a much wider releasen then it will probably get.Ice Cube delivers his best role to date and shows real promise as an actor,he is light years away from his NWA era angry-young-man.This movie is well worth watching and stands up to repeated viewings.

When I read a preview about Barbershop before it was released at the cinema, I was not really that impressed by how it sounded so I never went to see it at the cinema and when it was released to rent, it wasn't the first film I would pick up to rent but when my mate said he was going to get it out, I thought..."Lets give it a chance, what the heck!!"...and after the film had finished, my mate went to sleep and I put it on again. I love this film, so easy to watch and the characters are very easy to relate to even if Cedric (the Entertainer) can be quite hard to understand when you've had a few to many to drink!! Eve is just a goddess!!

Barbershop is a real gem of a film, hopefully not one of those that will get chucked aside as a 'black' movie, not only for the feel-good story, but for the great performances from the cast.
Calvin (Ice Cube) has inherited his father's barbershop in downtown Chicago, and is sick of making not much money. So, on a whim, he sells the family business to a loanshark called Lester Wallace, failing to tell his employees or wife. This bit is introduced early in the film, but really only comes to prominence in the latter half-hour or twenty minutes. The rest of the film is taken up in the barbershop with a colourful set of characters, or with the sub-plot, which sees friends JD (the ever-brilliant Anthony Anderson) and Kevin steal a cash machine.
The film is not consistently funny the whole way through, but it is consistently watchable. Occasionally, sentiment can bog it down, but not so much that you can't watch the film for sweetness.
Rapper Eve is fantastic as her role as Terri in the film. I was afraid that she would be wooden, but she plays her character believably, and evokes real emotion. And she has great comic timing - her fight with Sean Patrick Thomas over apple juice is class. The actor who plays Ricky (don't know his name) is a real revelation, along with Eve the best actor in the film.
Overall, this film is a nice but not too-nice film that doesn't make you think too much, perfect for a Saturday night in with friends, snacks and sodas on the sofa! Light-hearted, but thoroughly enjoyable.

This film is not your typical black movie its miles alway from films like juice and boyz in the hood and i must say its very refreshing to see this.
The film is funny from start to finish and it leaves you wanting more.
I was surprised by Eve's acting skills which are very good.
A must have film in your collection

Ice Cube's latest flick Barbershop acts as a commentary on the value of history in a community and that it takes people who care to make a community work. To do this, the movie spends a day in the life of the small barber shop, set in Chicago. The central conflict is Ice Cube, despite his better judgement, sells the shop to a loan shark because he has tried several get-rich-quick schemes which, unsurprisingly, has failed to pay off.

At the beginning of the movie we see Ice Cube trying to work on his recording studio, which is a long way from being operational. Ice Cube gets so caught up in this current project, of which there have been many precedents, that when the offer comes to sell the shop he jumps at it. The loanshark then tells him that, while they will keep the sign outside saying "Barbershop," he intends to make it a strip club. Ice Cube promptly realises his mistake and tries to give him the money back but he won't take it.

That's the central plot of Barbershop, but in this case the plot is not the real meat of the movie. Instead, Barbershop's main agenda is showing you how these characters who are in the barbershop react to one another and what negative impacts they will endure if the loanshark is indeed successful in turning it into a strip club.

In this cast of characters, there are the old timers, a college kid who isn't as smart as he thinks, a white barber who is acts black, a woman whose tired of being cheated on and very protective of her apple juice, a felon convicted two times his trying to get his life together, and a West African who speaks with an accent. Through the course of the movie, we see all these characters interact and watch as they learn together and rub each other raw in some cases.
