Every now and then my mother and I go to the movies because she enjoys
it. One day she asked me if I wanted to see Barbershop: The Next Cut at
the dollar movies. I had overheard from a few acquaintances that it was
a decent movie, and I couldn't find anything more interesting showing
so I decided to see it with her. I had never seen any of the prior
Barbershops so I didn't know what to expect. I figured why not, I had
nothing better to do and thought maybe I would watch a decent movie and
get a few chuckles in. Boy oh boy was I asking for too much.
Right away within the first two minutes I knew the kind of nonsense I would have to sit through. It starts off talking about how awesome of a president Barack Hussein Obama is, and how black people are oppressed and blah blah blah (let it be known that I am not white. Sorry to disappoint you race-card players). I figure, "whatever, it won't last", but silly me. As the first few minutes played out, every liberal progressive talking point gets thrown in my face so fast I feel like I'm watching CNN. With horrendous acting, the illiterates working at the barbershop (which is co-ed, because you can't forget "gender equality") ramble on about how white man is so bad, and that the white man is the reason for their failures and shortcomings and how they need to take back power, how guns and cops are evil, black lives matter, and how the gangster Michael Brown was a victim despite the fact that other races are killed more frequently. I mean, people talk like Brown was walking home from Med School when he was shot. The list goes on and on. Amidst an argument among the illiterates about the tyrannical Caucasian race, the token Middle Eastern of the diverse group says, "Look guys, I don't like white people either". Can you imagine if a white person said that about black people? But this is different so it gets a pass i guess. There is no rhyme or reason to any of this stuff being brought up other than to appeal to the brainwashed population that eats this stuff up. The camera has an annoying tendency to make sure that the "NO GUNS ALLOWED" sign is always clearly visible in the background, and when our beloved protagonist Ice Cube apprehends a gun, he looks at it like he never saw one before. I'm not even 15 minutes into the movie and I feel pathetic just being in the same room. Here you have a bunch of millionaire actors pretending to be oppressed and poor and crying like victims, only to cash their million dollar checks and go back to their lavish lifestyle.
The movie at times will take a break from it's communist agenda (but not really) to develop its plot, which is so hilariously sad that I have every reason to believe that these script writers belong in strait jackets. When two members of rival gangs have an altercation in the barbershop, the illiterates decide that it's time to take action! Let's do something to stop the gun violence! YEAH!! So what do they do to try to stop violence in the neighborhood? FREE HAIRCUTS! What better way to stop bloods and crips from murdering each other than free haircuts?! OMG Why has nobody thought of this before?!! If only every neighborhood in America with a high crime rate gave out free haircuts to its people then we wouldn't have this senseless gun violence guys! It's so obvious!! It's so sad seeing how out of touch with reality some people are.
I apologize if my review was too political, but that's exactly what this movie is; too political, with not even an iota of intelligence involved with it. I would have walked out of the movie if I was not with my mother. If you have the slightest bit of self-respect, do not see this movie. Do not support the Hollywood idiots that are so out of touch with reality.

It's been more than 10 years since our last appointment at Calvin's Barbershop. Calvin 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. The ladies bring their own flavor, 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 neighborhood.
