BARBERSHOP: THE NEXT CUT. (Barbershop 3)
Ice Cube and Cedric the Entertainer are reunited in the comedy BARBERSHOP: THE NEXT CUT. It’s been more than 10 years since our last appointment and Calvin (Cube) and his longtime crew, including Eddie (Cedric), are still there, but the shop has undergone some major changes. Most noticeably, the 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. But 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.
