Barbershop 2: Back in Business (2004)
I enjoyed the flashbacks to Calvin Senior's era. But other than repeating what was established in the first film there's really only a clichéd struggle against a competitor, the big-business soulless machine, to carry the present story forward. The out of work hours segments should've deepened the characters. Instead, it felt like filler for more than half of them. It's not a bad film, I liked it, but it lacked the weight of conscience that bolstered the first one.
