Barbershop 2

Essentially the same story as the original, revitalised because of the underground sleeper success of its predecessor. Calvin (Cube) still owns his Dad's barbershop and it's still staffed by the same characters who provide both the subplots and the stop-everything-for-a-standup-comedy routine.

This time, the corrupt standover man is a much worse adversary; big business and local government who want to gentrify the neighbourhood, drive the cut price community out and implanting strip malls and groovy retail chains.

The story arc is virtually the same, there's the same amount of heart and reverence for tradition, and with the addition of a few new characters, it's as enjoyable as the original while unoriginal in itself.
