The Next Cut is a comedy with dramatic heft or a drama with solid comedy, depending on how you look at it. Either way, it more than justifies returning to the barbershop.

I did not laugh much, but it is effective on an emotional level, as a portrait of a people trying to cope with gang violence that is spinning out of control in their community.

No one is going to be talking about this film when awards season rolls around next time. But chances are good that you'll leave the theater with a smile on your face. Considering the real-life subject matter, maybe that's worthy of a prize.

It's like a PG-13, dad version of Chi-Raq. The message, if a little preachy and a little schmaltzy, is also worthy and well-meant.

The barbs are scissor-sharp, making this a threequel that delivers what you want while throwing in some surprises.

The best of the Barbershop quartet (following 2002's Barbershop, 2004's Barbershop: Back in Business, and 2005's Beauty Shop), Barbershop: The Next Cut offers more laughs and more meaningful commentary than previous installments in the series.

The first one to really get a semblance of the first movie's charm back. It's easily the best of the sequels.

Like its predecessors, the third in the "Barbershop" series is rough around the edges, by turns funny, jubilant and sentimental, sometimes forced, but rarely phony.

For all the jibes, silly feuds, romances and dancing, it is their decision to take a stand against the violence that impresses most, and their disillusionment with a President they hoped would bring change that stays with you.

What really makes this latest trip to the Barbershop a cut above most comedies is that it manages to be both powerful and timely, without being preachy.

In short, it may have been a long time (12 years) coming, but Barbershop 3 is much better than expected.

A daring and admirable comedy that never loses its sense of humor even when it tackles tough subjects that other films wouldn't dare to address.

A durably funny comedy that balances a likable cast and has something to say about its subject, even if it's not something especially groundbreaking. (Splice Today)

Kenya Barris and Tracy Oliver's script has its preachy side, but with an endearing mixture of idealism and cynical humor, and the cast is packed with solid talent.
