About the Movie

Barbershop is a smart comedy about a day in the life of a barbershop on the south side of Chicago, Calvin (Ice Cube), who inherited the struggling business from his deceased father, views the shop as nothing but a burden and waste of his time. After selling the shop to a local loan shark, Calvin slowly begins to see his father's vision and legacy and struggles with the notion that he just sold it out.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Barbershop is a cozy place to hang out for a while, even if you don't need a little off the sides. – David Germain, Associated Press, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: A sloppy but likable movie. – Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle, Oct 2, 2002

Fresh: Amid the new populist comedies that underscore the importance of family tradition and familial community, one would be hard-pressed to find a movie with a bigger, fatter heart than Barbershop. – Jan Stuart, Newsday, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: Some of the verbal jousts are hot, and a Laurel and Hardy routine involving a stolen ATM is fitfully hilarious, but this reminds me of a pilot for a cable sitcom. – Ted Shen, Chicago Reader, Jun 24, 2010
