More Detail:

Two faltering barbers turned “lawmen” wage war against crime and reclaim their neighborhood while their peers ask “WHO’S THE MAN?” Set in Harlem, a disgruntled barbershop owner grieves over the desecration of his neighborhood and his less-than-adequate employees, Dr. Dre and Ed Lover. Nick fires them, suggesting they become lawmen. Desperate, Dr. Dre and Ed take a test to qualify each of them to be “the man.” Meanwhile, Mr. Demetrius, a sinister developer, has purchased every building on the block, except for Nick’s barbershop. Unwilling to sell it because famous personalities such as Sugar Ray Leonard have graced its chairs, Nick is literally blown out of business, and Dr. Dre and Ed become unofficially involved in the case. Because they reek such havoc for the police commissioner, the commissioner fires them. Much to the police commissioner’s dismay, they take the law into their own hands and solve the crime.

The movie is an earthy comedy, saturated with rhythm and rap. The profane and obscene language, violence and some homosexual activities detract from what could have been a harmless slapstick comedy. However, on the other hand, there are positive references to church, Scripture and virginity.
