Back Again for some more laughs on the South Side of Chicago! (by SonicStuart)
Barbershop 2: Back in BusinessStarring: Ice Cube, Eve, Troy Garity, Michael Ealy, Sean Patrick Thomas and Queen Latifah Genre: ComedyRated: PG-13We continue the adventures with the barbers and Calvin Palmer Ice Cube on the South Side of Chicago. In this sequel to the 2002 hit Barbershop, Calvin's shop is threatened again but this time by a greedy developer who is opening a mega-franchise barbershop right across the street from Calvin's shop. The whole gang from the first movie is back including Eddie Cedric the Entertainer , Terri Eve , Jimmy Sean Patrick Thomas , Ricky Michael <more>
Ealy and Isacc Troy Garity . Also in this movie we have a new character named Gina Queen Latifah who is a stylist at a beauty shop next door. As Calvin does what he can to counter this threat, life goes on in the barbershop, with more of the same tart dialog and life complications in various hilarious ways as in the original. I missed Anthony Anderson and Lahmard Tate in this sequel because I thought they were hilarious in the first one but this sequel was still funny and besides at this time when this movie was filming, Anthony Anderson was busy doing Agent Cody Banks 2, Scary Movie 3, Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle and his TV-series, All About the Andersons. Just another day on the South Side of Chicago.
Good wholesome movie with an engaging story. Wish they would have make more movies like this.
CUBE Does It Again (by danceability)
CUBE Does It AgainBarbershop 2: Back in Business is a great sequel, one which delivers fresh, subversive laughs. Sure the plot is just about the same as the first, but the movie still entertains and the cast is even better since we have a few new characters, such as Queen Latifah who plays Gina, the owner of another barbershop near Calvin's. Ice Cube returns as Calvin Palmer, the owner of a very popular barbershop on the Chicago Southside. The entire cast does return, and offers something a little new to the film, surely Eddie Cedric the Entertainer for in this film he rambles about the <more>
Kobe Bryant trial, R. Kelly and Michael Jackson as well as a few others. Eve returns as Teri, Sean Patrick Thomas, Michael Ealy, Troy Garity and more. I should also point out that this installment is directed by a different director, Kevin Rodney Sullivan who made his debut with this film and he keeps the franchise going more than well. Barbershop 2: Back In Business is rated PG-13 for Language, Sexual Material and Brief Drug References. The language is a bit bawdy and rough, there's also sexual innuendo nothing explicit though. The film has already been a hit and surely deserves to be one, I'm not too sure if it's better than the first but it sure is as good. Head down to the theatre and check out Barbershop 2.
"Barbershop 2: Back in Business" is a better-made, if not necessarily better film than the original. I loved the first "Barbershop" movie that came out in 2002. The sequel is 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. There is a little more drama with "Back in Business" that never slows the film down; a little <more>
drama never hurt anyone, did it? Either way, I did thoroughly enjoy myself watching "Barbershop 2: Back in Business" and I rated it a 9/10.
Creating a sequel to a movie is a tough task. If it's too much like the original film people will complain it's nothing more than a rehash. If it's too different they'll complain that the movie has no link to the original. It's a fine wire to tread and fortunately the people behind BARBERSHOP 2: BACK IN BUSINESS have done and amazing job.After the success of the first film the odds of a follow up were pretty good. Star Ice Cube had already done this with his successful FRIDAY films. Here he takes the neighborhood barbershop in a similar direction while adding a new threat <more>
to the store.Calvin Palmer Cube has kept the barbershop up and running and successful. Next door a new ladies beauty shop has even opened owned by his one-time girlfriend Gina Queen Latifah . No threat here though as he remains in love with his wife and the apple of his eye his newborn son. Hoping to one day pass along the shop to his son this is threatened when a new business is about to open across the street.A chain haircut salon called Nappy Cutz is set to open. Developer Quentin Leroux Harry Lennix has is trying to buy out all the local businesses and upgrade the neighborhood. But in doing so his potential gentrification of the neighborhood will rob it of not just the flavor that it possesses but will force those who live here to move, unable to afford living where they currently do.Once again Calvin is faced with the offer of someone to buy out his business. This time around though it's not just some loan shark threatening him. In addition to Leroux he's facing opposition from a crooked politician alderman Brown Robert Wisdom who's taking payoffs from Leroux. Faced with what appears to be an unbeatable pair alongside a new business filled with flash and pizzazz Calvin tries to compete by sprucing up his place and hosting a cookout for the neighborhood complete with free cuts for the kids. The odds are stacked against him though. At a vote before the local board determining whether or not to allow construction in the neighborhood to go forward Calvin steps up to speak. Leroux has made him an offer of more money than he's ever seen before. Will he choose to take the money and advise the other business's around him to do the same? Or will he stand up for what's right?While all of this sounds serious, and it is, the movie is fueled by the humor that is wrapped around this story. All of the characters from the previous film are back on board and their lives have changed in different but positive ways. In particular this time we get to know more about Eddie Cedric the Entertainer , his back story and a romance we never knew about. It is through Eddie that we also learn more about the history of the barbershop itself as well as Calvin's father.Once again I was pleasantly surprised at how fun this movie was. I know I liked it the first time I saw it but I think I enjoyed it more this time around. It's one of those movies to keep on hand and pop in from time to time, a nice double feature with the first film that would result in plenty of laughs and touching moments to make a nice evening at home.MVD Marquee Collection again offers the film in a great new blu-ray version along with the extras offered in the past. Those include a commentary track with actors Cedric, Sean Patrick Thomas, Troy Garity and Jazsmin Lewis, an audio commentary track with director Kevin Sullivan and producers Bob Teitel and George Tillman Jr., 6 deleted scenes, outtakes, an extended music video "Not Today" by Mary J. Blige featuring Eve, a music video "I Can't Wait" by Sleepy Brown featuring OutKast, a behind the scenes photo gallery, the original theatrical trailer and the trailers for BARBERSHOP and BEAUTY SHOP. All in all a great package and one to pick up for your shelf.
This movie is once again another good movie. It equally if not surpasses the first one. This one takes a similar but great plot and makes another good movie. This movie has added more comedy. Cedric is hilarious once again. Ice Cube portrays Calvin with another great role. The conversations push away from music and TV and deal with Politics. Some characters are annoying but overall its good to have the same cast back. The Barbecue with Queen Latifa in it was great not to mention foreshadowing Beauty Shop . The love triangle from the previous movie is brought back with double the laughs. The <more>
politics and the barbershop being put on TV were all hilarious. I'm glad this movie was able to keep things fresh in Chicago. If you loved the first one then check this one out.
Barbershop 2: Back in Business 2004 : Dir: Kevin Rodney Sullivan / Cast: Ice Cube, Cedric the Entertainer, Sean Patrick Thomas, Queen Latifah, Eve: Here is a comedy that not just continues the story of the hit film but it also addresses being yourself and making others comfortable with your world. It opens with a 1967 flashback centering upon Cedric the Entertainer escaping the law and finding refuge in a barbershop that he would remain at for the next forty years. Business is going well until a bigger corporation begins buying up businesses on the block and establish a rival barbershop. <more>
Structured in sitcom fashion with a clever conclusion. Director Kevin Rodney Sullivan gives a realistic view of the barber scene. Ice Cube is excellent as the second generation manager who struggles against the decline in business in the area as well as competition. Cedric the Entertainer is given a back story involving romance on a subway. Fine supporting work by Sean Patrick Thomas who left the barbershop and took up politics, which come into conflict with his old friends. Queen Latifah plays Cube's ex-girlfriend who remains friends and opened a beauty salon next door. She and Cedric do not get along. Eve also makes an appearance from the music industry. While much of this is predictable it is still a worthwhile and entertaining sequel deserving of business. Score: 8 / 10
I like the movie because it addresses the importance of history and how many cities simply decide to forget all of its culture just for the quick dollar. Chicago is just the best example because most of the sites you saw in Blues Brothers and Running Scared are gone Maxwell Street and streets like it are all gone to make way for progress. But the line in which Calvin asks what good is progress if you lose your soul? I remember this as an example, the nearby town of Murphysboro didn't want a Wal Mart as to whether the city listened or buckled is left in the air but when you have Wal in <more>
towns less than 10 miles from each other and pretty much force the issue where truly is the voice of America? But then again I don't know but it does make you wonder where are we truly headed.
