Barbershop: The Next Cut
Release date: April 15th
Cast: Ice Cube, Cedric the Entertainer, Regina Hall, Common, Nicki Minaj
Director: Malcolm D. Lee
Reason to be excited: The joy of the first two Barbershop movies was their mellow, lived-in, smack-talking vibe. As he did with his Best Man series, Lee approaches Barbershop: The Next Cut as more of a catch-up-with-old-friends -- and a confrontation of the current race tension in America -- than simply rehashing of reliable material. Hell, even Nicki Minaj looks funny.
