Starring Ice Cube, Cedric the Entertainer, Eve and Michael Ealy, before watching Barbershop, I had quite a clear idea about how director Tim Story’s Chicago based Barbershop comedy was going to turn out.
There’s humorous banter among those that work in the barbershop and the sometimes peculiar patrons / random visitors. It’s not all laughs of course, there’s a little drama thrown in too.
As fun as the barbershop banter is, what I loved most about the movie actually takes place outside the barbershop. It’s all the comedy that comes from everything the characters played by Lahmard J. Tate and Anthony Anderson get up to.
Barbershop is a good slice of light Chicago based entertainment with colourful characters. Know this, expect nothing more and enjoy.
