Kevin Rodney Sullivan steps in to direct the urban comedy sequel Barbershop 2: Back in Business. The whole gang -- Eddie (Cedric the Entertainer), Jimmy James (Sean Patrick Thomas), Terri (Eve), Isaac (Troy Garity), Ricky (Michael Ealy), and Dinka (Leonard Earl Howze) -- are still there in the same old barbershop in the south side of Chicago. Owner Calvin Palmer (Ice Cube) tries to keep his family business alive in order to pass it on to his own son one day. However, the beloved neighborhood barber shop is threatened by a hair salon franchise called Nappy Cuts. This time around, the old friends are joined by Gina (Queen Latifah) from the beauty shop next door. ~ Andrea LeVasseur, All Movie Guide

I enjoyed the original Barbershop, and I enjoyed Beauty Shop, but this is a better movie. I'm not sure why this movie is lower rated by Greencine users.

Production values were higher and the movie was more visually interesting.

The script was better. The pacing didn't fall apart. The comic timing was improved (and imho Cedric's jokes were considerably funnier). The same cast had better chemistry. The plot didn't depend as heavily on out-of-character behavior. Sean Patrick Thomas and Jazsmin Lewis' characters were less unnecessarily negative.

And if you enjoy watching these actors as much as I did, don't forget to watch the outtakes.
