The Barbershop gang are back once again. Having had to team up with Angie's ladies salon to be able to stay afloat, the Barbershop is no longer a man only zone and not all of Calvin's customers are happy having to share but they make it work.
Sharing the salon floor is the least of the towns problems, ever more frequently their streets are being overrun by gangs fighting for territory, new corner boys and customers. Calvin and the residents who love their town and want it returning to its former state, decide to take matters into their own hands.
Barbershop: The Next Cut is the forth film in franchise which includes a spinoff called Beauty Shop. The film was directed by Malcolm D. Lee who directed the hugely successful 'The Best Man' series of films.

Cast as The Eternal Earth Mother in Hunter Hill and Perry Moore's Lake City, Sissy Spacek is a one woman universe -- tilling the soil, pushing wheelbarrows, filling the cupboards, sitting on the porch, and staring pensively at the sunset or gazing at the eternal landscape. She is not channeling her characters in Badlands or The River so much as going back to the source -- Linda Arvidson's stoic pioneer women from the old D.W. Griffith two-reelers (all that is missing is waiting for her effeminate husband to reel in the fish). She lives alone and leads a hard life keeping her farm together in rural Virginia and even though local gas station attendant and part-time guitar picker Roy (Keith Carradine) pines for her, Spacek's Maggie Pope keeps to herself and tend to her chores.

US musician Dave Matthews will star opposite Oscar-winning actress Sissy Spacek in the family drama LAKE CITY.
Spacek and Jane Fonda's son, actor Troy Garity, will play a mother and son who have been estranged after a tragedy.
Matthews, who will be credited in the film as DAVID MATTHEWS, will play the villain.
Matthews has also acted in two previous feature films - WHERE THE RED FERN GROWS in 2003 and Because of Winn-Dixie in 2005.
Doing time for unknown crimes, Joe (Bruce Willis) and Terry (Billy Bob Thornton) are milling about the clink one day when our hunky inmate Joe engineers a daring escape, taking his milquetoast pal Terry along for the ride. Within a few nights on the lam, they've engineered a plan for a new kind of bank robbery -- kidnap the bank manager at his home, spend the night at his house, then waltz in with him first thing in the morning and abscond with all the money.

From the outset, the movie bumbles into genre territory inhabited by superior specimens like John Dahl's Red Rock West, Sam Raimi's A Simple Plan, and the Coens' Fargo. Images of wintry fields and desolate small-town streets -- not to mention a moody minimalist score that feels directly indebted to Thomas Newman's music for American Beauty -- puts us in a mind for an existential fable, something those aforementioned movies delivered by way of complex characters nursing pent-up desires and grievances. Mindell and Murphy provide us with a potentially interesting collection of ne'er-do-wells, dreamers, and saps. But their material is too shallow to allow any of their creations to function as more than cogs in the story's clockwork plotting. And, for a movie that references setting in its very title (more for its cultural implications than for geographic accuracy), Milwaukee, Minnesota's sense of place feels as arbitrary as its characterizations, never venturing beyond the stale stereotypes of the provincial Midwest.

Ice Cube finally puts down the gun and bong (yes, he's doing another Friday movie after this) in his best role since Three Kings. Here he plays Calvin, a soon-to-be father with aspirations for greatness who's inherited his father's struggling barbershop in the south side of Chicago. In a moment of panic, he sells the shop to a local loan shark (Keith David). But soon after, we meet the colorful crew that spend their day at Calvin's: the loony old-timer barber Eddie (Cedric the Entertainer), educated but snotty Jimmy (Sean Patrick Harris), two-strike thug Ricky (Michael Ealy), shy but sweet Dinka (Leonard Howza), pimped out "wigger" Isaac (Troy Garity), and tough girl-done-wrong Terri (hip-hop queen Eve). Spending a good day with these regulars, Calvin starts to realize his mistake, and begins working to set his error straight.

Garity claims he was just six-years-old when his father, activist TOM HAYDEN, took him to Northern Ireland. He recalls, "We got pulled over by a tank in the middle of the night. This was a big turning point in my life... An armoured car and a tank pull into this country road and soldiers wearing face masks surround the car.
"Ironically, one of the soldiers was black and he was standing outside of my window with a machine gun. I remember the black on the barrel of the gun had started to patina... It horrified me.

The pointed, no-taboos banter that was the soul of 2002's surprise hit "Barbershop" gets the short shrift in the entertaining but too-cursory sequel "Barbershop 2: Back in Business."
Similarly funny and socially aware -- the plot this time involves a battle against cavalier gentrification -- this flick once again features Ice Cube (in another sincere and satisfying performance) as shop owner Calvin Palmer, who has grown into a casually strong community pillar, and Cedric the Entertainer, back in fine form as Eddie, the titular tonsorial's controversy-stirring motor-mouthed muckraker.
But the continuing penchant for pointless subplots overtakes this picture's sense of self. "Barbershop" was padded with just one clumsy, slapsticky secondary storyline, about a pair of bungling small-time criminals trying to rid themselves of a stolen ATM machine. But "Barbershop 2" is over-padded with arbitrary, unconvincing sexual tension between reformed angry-thug barber Ricky (Michael Ealy) and reformed spitfire stylist Terri (rapper/actress Eve), and a 1960s backstory for Eddie that, while well written and socially relevant, has no bearing on the present. All this works to the detriment of the ruthlessly funny repartee that was the essence of the original.
