    I think Barbershop would work better as a sitcom than a franchise of films because of the challenge a long-time barbershop faces in light of the new, more hip barbershop opening right across the street from Calvin's just doesn't really warrant the big screen treatment.

    There are some funny and somewhat insightful bits during the barbershop banter between all the barbers at Calvin's, but it's just there, not many comedic sparks or fireworks in this film, and while we find out more about Eddie (Cedric the Entertainer) and how he finds his way to Calvin's and why he doesn't have to pay for his chair, I didn't think audiences were clamoring for his story.

    There are other subplots, but nothing all that interesting.

    I give it 2 stars, or a grade of C.
