Take a seat, sit back, and get ready for another haircut: Calvin opens up shop once again in BARBERSHOP 2: BACK IN BUSINESS, a sequel to the original comedy smash hit. Calvin Palmer (Ice Cube), Eddie (Cedric the Entertainer), Jimmy James (Sean Patrick Thomas), Terri Jones (Eve), Isaac Rosenberg (Troy Garity), Ricky Nash (Michael Ealy) and Dinka (Leonard Earl Howze) - they're still cutting hair and cutting up in Calvin's shop on the South Side of Chicago. Gina (Queen Latifah) joins the fun as a stylist at the beauty shop next door and Kenard (Kenan Thompson) as a rookie trying to earn his clippers.
In BARBERSHOP 2: BACK IN BUSINESS, Calvin (Ice Cube) has gotten over his money troubles and is no longer in danger of losing his shop - but his neighborhood is in danger of losing its identity. Intent on "regentrifying" the South Side, a money-hungry corporation is moving into the community with coffee bars, video stores, and a big-name haircut chain, and the area's "mom and pop" establishments are in danger of losing their hometown advantage. While juggling changing situations, new loves, and looking for ways to better their lives, Calvin and his crew have to take a stand to keep the South Side and its businesses in the family.
Of course, the crew still has time for its signature Barbershop discussions - outrageous, explosive, and hilarious. The world changes and so do hairdos, but some things never go out of style - you can still say anything at the barbershop.
Directed by Kevin Rodney Sullivan and music by Richard Gibbs there's additional music by Wu-Tang Clan featuring The RZA.
