Barbershop: The Next Cut (2016)
More than a decade after the last Barbershop, the gang's debates on relationships, gender, family, and age gaps are even wilder, thanks to Ice Cube's bro-heavy barbershop sharing floor space with Regina Hall and Nicki Minaj's salon. And in the hands of Black-ish creator Kenya Barris and Tracy Oliver (Survivor's Remorse), they're crucial. The barbershop, always a safe haven, is embroiled in gang violence and city bureaucracy. Cube's Calvin, his staff, and his patrons find their usual fire silenced by tragedy. Names like Freddie Gray, Michael Brown, and Trayvon Martin are on the tips of these characters' tongues. The movie has the dramatic prowess to make it work, swinging from hard laughs -- Common, New Girl's Lamorne Morris, and the fiery Minaj steal the show -- to potent drama.
