A man selling his family's barbershop in urban Chicago experiences a change of heart when he spends time with its amusing employees and customers.

Calvin Palmer, a young man more concerned with making a quick buck than staying true to his roots, sells the family barbershop -- located in a blighted corner of south-side Chicago -- to loan shark Lester, drawing the ire of wife Jennifer as a result. Eager to make things right with his wife, Calvin spends a day cutting hair alongside the barbershop's eclectic cast of employees, soon realizing that he didn't know what he had 'til it was gone as he works to undo his sale.

Review by bigdawg4ever (posted on 11-Oct-2007)

Meaning no disrespect to anyone who is not African American, but, if you have never been in a Black Barbershop, you will not get this movie. Set in a urban black barbershop, this film gives viewers an inside sometimes over the top look at what life is like in a black barbershop. From the barbers themselves to the people who frequent them. Anthony Anderson and Lahmard Tates charcters always trying to scheme on getting ahead. A barber who thinks he is too good to be "a barber" (Sean Patrick Thomas) a barber who has been on the wrong side of the law (Michael Ealy.Believe it or not, there is always a white barber who thinks that he can cut black hair. (Troy Garrity) and of course one barber who never cuts hair but is the oldest, wisest barber in the shop (Cedric the entertainer) and of course the Owner, who seems to hold everyone together when things get rough. (Ice Cube) this movie is entertaining with some over the top laughs and some serious moments when Ice cube wants to sell the shop and the other barbers are worried what they will do if he does. Cedric the entertainer is hilarious as the Old Barber who always seems to have words of wisdom for Calvin. Cedrics character eddie, use to work for calvins father when he owned the shop. This film is fun,and most (especially african american men can relate) will have fun with this movie.
