Barbershop: The Next Cut | The neighbourhood rescue

Published:Wednesday | May 11, 2016 | 5:00 AM
Calvin's Barbershop welcomes new faces in ‘Barbershop: The Next Cut’.

It's been more than 10 years since our last appointment at Calvin's Barbershop. Calvin and his long-time 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 flavour, 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 neighbourhood.

Barbershop: The Next Cut is an American comedy directed by Malcolm D. Lee. It is the sequel to 2004's Barbershop 2: Back in Business and the fourth film in the Barbershop film series and stars an ensemble cast, including returning actors Ice Cube, Cedric the Entertainer, Anthony Anderson, Eve, Sean Patrick Thomas, Deon Cole and Troy Garity, and new cast members Regina Hall, Nicki Minaj, Common, J.B. Smoove, Tyga and Lamorne Morris.
