Not so Hollywood

One can imaging that after seeing Barbershop, the film featuring Ice Cube, you would believe to find African-American costumers joking and yelling at each other, making a party of their visit to the barbershop. My husband enjoys a good shave, with use of hot towels and the whole enchilada. Three times I've gone to this place with him and to my awe, I've nothing but good things to say about my experience there. The clients are well behave, they wait their turn patiently in silence, when they have a conversation they don't raise their voices. I'm so naive in that respect. Knowing how Hollywood film makers twist reality in their favor to sell, how could I believe that nonsense? I showed my sketch to the barber and the man with the blue T-shirt, and they liked it and smiled. Hollywood, how dare you?
