Barber Shop (Dir. Tim Story 2002): A smart comedy about a day in the life of a barbershop on the south side of Chicago. Calvin (Cube) who inherited the struggling business from his deceased father views the shop as nothing but a burden and waste of his time. After selling the shop to a local loan shark Calvin slowly begins to see his father's vision and legacy and struggles with the notion that he just sold it out. Calvin's barbershop is filled with an eclectic and hilarious cast of characters that share their stories jokes trials and tribulations. In the shop... we find Eddie (the Entertainer) an old barber with strong opinions and no customers. Jimmy (Thomas) is a highly educated barber with a superiority complex who can't stand Isaac (Garity) the new white barber who just wants a shot at cutting some hair. Ricky is an ex-con with two strikes against him and is desperately trying to stay straight. Terri (Eve) is a hard-edged woman who can't seem to leave her two-timing boyfriend. And lastly there's Dinka a fellow barber who is madly in love with Terri but doesn't get the time of day. Beauty Shop (Dir. Billie Woodruff 2005): The place that can change your whole look on life. From the filmmakers that brought you Barbershop and Barbershop 2 Queen Latifah stars as Gina a hairstylist who opens a shop of her own. Gina Norris (Queen Latifah) is a long way from the Barbershop. She's moved from Chicago to Atlanta so her daughter can attend a prestigious music school and she's made a name for herself at a posh salon with her cutting-edge hairstyles. But when her egotistical boss takes credit for her work she leaves the salon with the shampoo girl (Alicia Silverstone) in tow to open a shop of her own. Gina buys a rundown salon and inherits a motley group of headstrong stylists a colourful clientele and a sexy piano-playing electrician (Djimon Hounsou). It's a rocky road to fulfilling her dreams but you can't keep a good woman down! Taxi (Dir. Tim Storey 2004): A loose remake of the Luc Besson production of the same name. Cab driver Belle Williams (Queen Latifah) regularly flies through the streets of New York in her souped-up Taxi earning her a reputation as the Big Apple's fastest cabbie. However Belle wants to be a real race-car driver and her day-job is only a means to paving the way for that dream. Well on the way to her ambition she is put in between a rock and a hard place by cop Andy Washburn: a great undercover cop but a hopeless driver! Hot on the heels of a gang of sexy Brazilian bank-robbers Washburn convinces Belle to assist him in catching the crooks. Cue some insane stunts and a complete disregard for the laws of the roads!
