A funny movie, but also a serious movie, and — who knows? — maybe an important one.
Barbershop: The Next Cut's heart is in the right place, and I enjoyed nearly every unkempt minute of it.
Barbershop: The Next Cut, the third installment in the film series, brings the laughs while injecting a serious topical theme that gives it a welcome edge.
At times, the latest Barbershop might get too serious for some, but as far as the comedy goes, it remains a cut above the rest.
With its combination of workplace sitcom and social activism, Barbershop: The Next Cut feels more like a binge-viewing of multiple episodes of a TV series than a movie, but even on that level, it’s a show worth watching.
Though this series is built on comic looseness, it’s that sincerity that carries through its minor comedic missteps, like underusing Hall and leaning too heavily on Cedric’s wacky-old-man shtick.
The Guardian
Barbershop: The Next Cut is hardly subtle, but it is more nuanced than you might expect.
The movie derives its energy almost entirely from the bristling quality of the dialogue and the easy ensemble flow of the performances.
Lee often seems unsure of whether he's directing a comedy or a civics lesson, and the film only finds its wings in the moments when he realizes that the two don't have to be mutually exclusive.
Overlong, polished but drab civics lesson of a comedy. This “Barbershop” is in sore need of a trim, and not just a little off the top, either.
