Barbershop: The Next Cut has the premise of: It’s been more than 10 years since our last appointment at Calvin’s Barbershop. Calvin (Ice Cube) 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…
Yes, over 10 years, and no-one’s missed it. In fact, 13 years… unlucky for everyone.
This supposed comedy also stars Anthony Anderson, Regina Hall, Garcelle Beauvais, Deon Cole, Sean Patrick Thomas, Cedric the Entertainer and somehow also stars Nicki Minaj in a major role, plus one-word-named individuals Common, Eve and Tyga.
Barbershop: The Next Cut looks to be yet another lazy US comedy where the predominantly black cast keep pointing out that they’re all black as well as dropping in the word “nigger” whenever they feel like it. Haven’t we grown out of that now??
The UK release date is April 19th 2016, just four days after the US see it.
