Welcome to Calvin's Barbershop. Come in and get lined up. Take off your hat and let off some steam. They'll cut what's on your head while you say what's on your mind. Grab a chair, wait your turn, hang out, hear a story, talk some gossip, read a magazine, and be ready to share your opinions. But don't get mad when they laugh at what comes out of your mouth. The barbershop's a place where everyone comes together and is together. Everybody's equal, at least until they walk out the door. You come in for a haircut. You leave with a lot more.
BARBERSHOP is an ensemble comedy about a day at a barbershop on the south side of Chicago. It's Calvin's (Ice Cube) shop, and he inherited the struggling business from his father, but with bills to pay and a baby on the way he sees the shop as a burden and waste of time. After selling the shop to a local loan shark, however, Calvin finally begins to see his father's vision and legacy - and struggles with the notion that he just sold it out. Realizing the shop's importance to the community and to the people who work there, Calvin's got to raise the money to get it back and keep the shop in the family.
Calvin's Barbershop is a gathering place for an eclectic and hilarious cast of characters - and a showcase for a young, talented crew of rising stars. Eddie (Cedric the Entertainer) is an old-time barber with a big mouth, strong opinions, and no customers. College student Jimmy (Sean Patrick Thomas) has a superiority complex and can't stand Isaac (Troy Garity), the white barber who just wants a shot at cutting some hair. Ricky (Michael Ealy) is an ex-con with two strikes against him who's trying to stay straight, and Terri (rap star Eve) is a hard-edged woman who can't seem to leave her two-timing boyfriend - or get people to leave her apple juice alone. Also including Anthony Anderson, Leonard Earl Howze, Keith David, and Lahmard Tate an all-star cast comes together in BARBERSHOP to tell a story of laughter, heart, community...and haircuts.
