Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Barbershop has mature material, including references to adultery and some strong language, including the "N" word and "f--k." Some comments about early civil rights leaders have been very controversial, even prompting calls that they be edited out of the movie. Parents should know that the comments are made by one character and are objected to by the other characters, and they may spark the interest of younger viewers to learn more. There are a few drug references and violent situations, including a character holding but not using a gun. Sexual content includes exaggerated French-kissing and buttocks grabbing and constant talk of women's large and desirable derrieres.
