Storyline

It's been more than 10 years since our last appointment at Calvin's Barbershop. Calvin and his longtime crew are still there, but the shop has undergone some major changes. Most noticeably, our once male-dominated sanctuary is now co-ed. The ladies bring their own flavor, drama and gossip to the shop challenging the fellas at every turn. Despite the good times and camaraderie within the shop, the surrounding community has taken a turn for the worse, forcing Calvin and our crew to come together to not only save the shop, but their neighborhood. Written by Warner Bros.

Quotes

Calvin: [voice over] In every neighborhood there's a place folks gets together to talk about their dreams, to share their frustrations, and maybe even tell a joke or two. It's a home away from home, and these aren't just friends, they're family.

Third times definitely the charm
17 April 2016 | by subxerogravitySee all my reviews

Absolutely impressed with how Ice Cube has pushed this franchise forward.

Spike Lee's cousin, Malcolm Lee directs more of a love letter to Chicago (literally narrated by Ice Cube in the film) Than last years Chi-Raq (which I hear Chicago gives no love for)

I hope Chi-Town feels differently about Barbershop: the Next Cut. Despite being filmed in Georgia(according to the peach in the end credits), it is a positive silver lining, Rose growing in concrete type situation, that encourages hope for all African American Neighborhoods (And their local Barbershops)

Ice Cube returns as Calvin, a small business owner trying to keep his head afloat. He does this by merging with Angie who owned a Beauty shop(I don't think it's the same one from the Barbershop spin-off, Beauty Shop). Most importantly he's a father trying to do what is right for his son Jalen, who's growing up in a neighborhood that seems worse now than when he was coming up.

Cedric The Entertainer also returns as old school Barber Eddie, and Eve returns as Terri Jones who has made a success out of herself cutting hair for the rich and famous. The Next Cut also has nice cameo appearances from other Barbershop alum like Sean Patrick Thomas as Jimmy James whose made it all the way up to the Mayor's office, and comes back with the plot of the movie:

The Mayor's office's plans to end gang violence in the community would actually threaten the small businesses in the neighborhood including the Barbershop, so the shop comes up with the idea of making Calvin's a Swiss like neutral territory for all that come for one weekend to get the gangs talking about peace.

Some new blood up in the shop is Common, as Terri's husband, Rashad. Common gave an impressive performance, that was all political, dramatic romantic, and humorous (those are some leading man skills right there). It's interesting that rapper Ice Cube would allow another rapper to outshine him like that (I guess it's OK cause they are just acting).

The movie was a well done political satire on what is going on in the community today, and how much we all need to band together to create positiveness, and it was all done without lacking in the entertainment quality that puts the Barbershop film franchise up there with the Friday movies.

Fantastic Job!
