The original Barbershop was a surprise hit for MGM back in 2002 as it was a small genre film with a minimal budget.
Barbershop 2 is more of the same and exactly what fans of the first film are looking for.
Having not seen the first movie, I was a bit concerned about being able to pick up the story, but luckily the second film does give some background information that makes it more accessible for first timers.

 Lee's Movie Info - Barbershop Review
Here's a movie that manages to entertain its audience with laughs and enjoyable tones, throwing in dramatic issues, interesting characters, great performances, and a theme/message that is one of the most heartfelt ones I've run across this year.
Barbershop could have just been just another one of those enjoyable Saturday night movies to get your laugh flow from and an overall entertaining time, but the script allows it to drive past your typical "feel-good" movie.
The plot of Barbershop is fairly simple, yet the story itself unfolds into a very intriguing and addictive situation-after-situation, as we are taking front-row seats into the dilemmas of the faces on-screen and desire to find out the solutions to the problems because everyone is three-dimensional; they are just like us.

 BarberShop - Cranky Critic® Movie Reviews
The advertising for BarberShop proudly plugs the film as being from the producers of Soul Food, which is as good a place to start as any.
BarberShop also tends to meander and run a wee bit longer than it probably should and is just a shade less accessible than Soul Food.
The comedy of BarberShop ranges from genial to hysterical and, short of a bit of slang or a music reference here or there, there is nothing inherently difficult about the first hour, give or take, but great googly-moogly there is a ton of it to wade through.

The movie is good but could have been a lot better if the directors had dropped some of the juvenile “big ass” jokes and kept the action inside the friendly confines of the Chicago neighborhood barbershop.
The heart and soul of Barbershop is in the relationships between all the characters.
The one scene near the end of the movie of Jimmy having his hair cut by the lone white stylist in the shop is well shot and truly fascinating for people not familiar with the techniques.

 Movie Review - Barbershop 2 - www.ericdsnider.com - The Official Website of Eric D. Snider   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-18)
The charm of "Barbershop" (2002) was the casual conversation among its characters, the way the dialogue established rapport, brotherhood and community while being funny at the same time.
Basically, unless you've recently watched "Barbershop," you won't remember these characters or their connections to each other, but the sequel expects you to anyway.
And so it is fitfully amusing, buoyed a bit by a charismatic supporting performance by Queen Latifah, weighed down a bit by a typically sour-faced and dull performance by Ice Cube, all of it less interesting and less entertaining than it ought to have been.

 Barbershop (2002) Movie Review by Lynda Lin at The Movie Insider
Calvin's (Ice Cube) barbershop is an old slice of Americana in the middle of the urban decay of Southside Chicago.
He walks into his barbershop, lamenting another dream deferred, looking at the mural painting of his late father on the wall before picking up the phone to call the loan shark.
Barbershop does follow in revelatory tradition of the Christmas classic, but thank goodness the plot does not involve friends and patrons of Calvin pitching money into a pot to save the day.

 Barbershop (film) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Barbershop is a motion picture directed by Tim Story, produced by State Street Pictures, and released by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer on September 13, 2002.
Notable for being one of the most successful movies ever to have been directed by an African American, Barbershop also proved to be a star-making vehicle for acting newcomers Eve and Michael Ealy, and provided Ice Cube with a character different from the tough thugs he was so often called upon to portray in movies.
Produced on a budget of only $12 million, Barbershop, with a story by Mark Brown and a screenplay by Brown, Marshall Todd, and Don D. Scott, was filmed in Chicago during the winter of 2002.
