Barbershop: The Next Cut

Barbershop: The Next Cut

(2016)

Everyone's back for a fresh cut.

Third entry in the Barbershop comedy series (a decade on since the second one) sees Calvin (Ice Cube) and his crew coming into hard financial times, as is the ladies’ salon just across the road. Realising that things need to change, the two rivals team up to advance the formerly male-dominated industry. It’s a union that’s not only good for business, but might be good for their troubled community as a whole. Co-stars Nicki Minaj, Common, Eve, Regina Hall and Cedric the Entertainer.

  • Stagey, often simplistic and it talks too damn much. But, hell, the talk has flavor and snap and a real-world sense of a community in crisis. Not bad for an escapist romp. Full Review

  • Actually ends up in the chair, with a highly symbolic snipping that could have come straight outta the 1950s. Full Review

  • The movie derives its energy almost entirely from the bristling quality of the dialogue and the easy ensemble flow of the performances. Full Review

  • If “Chi-Raq” aimed to shock us out of complacency, “The Next Cut” creates a more welcoming groove, encouraging greater openness to outside perspectives. Full Review

  • The most fascinating — and the most moving — thing about this sprawling, sincere and boisterous movie is its tone. Full Review
