Barbershop: The Next Cut brings topical social issues into the narrative but only starts meaningful conversations without genuinely pushing them forward.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

Even though it touches upon topical issues, its drama is forced and hinders rather than compliments proceedings.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

It does a lot to make you think, but The Next Cut has a much harder time persuading you what to think about anything in particular.

The film does have a certain heart, but I can't be the only one hoping not to see a Barbershop 4, whatever the obvious temptation to complete a quartet.

Too many cast members, too many sermons, too few laughs
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4

Contrivances are more powerful than good intentions, leaving this return to the franchise full of praiseworthy ideas, but ultimately less than triumphant.

Next time? Just a little off the top please, and leave the socio-political commentary to others.

It's harmless stuff although the swerve into gritty social justice may not win it many fans among a fanbase more concerned with blow-dries than drive-bys.

Glutted even more than its predecessors with ancient fellas-versus-females debates, ungainly sociopolitical commentary, and top-40 superstars trying to diversify their brands.

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.

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.

The funniest in the franchise.

At its best, The Next Cut is a vibrant, fluid open forum on questions of race, sex, and bullshit.

...Barbershop: The Next Cut succeeds with its charming cast, endearing dialogue and timely sociopolitical subject matter.

Just as the men and women at Calvin's Barbershop are older and have more responsibilities, so too is "Barbershop: The Next Cut" more mature than its cinematic predecessors.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4

For all its faults, there is something wise and enjoyable in the way the members of the shop and community talk about the problems in Barbershop: The Next Cut.
Full Review | Original Score: 6.8/10
April 15, 2016
Barbershop: The Next Cut is less a franchise close-out, and more a movie that sits a cut above its predecessors, admirable for its tenacity

The fourth entry in the Barbershop franchise delivers keen social commentary, bringing back many of the key players from the 2002 and 2004 installments.
April 17, 2016
The first half of the movie is especially fun when each character who enters sparks a deluge of one-liners, battle-of-the-sexes banter or pop-culture barbs about Kanye, the Kardashians and R. Kelly.

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.
