Barbershop: The Next Cut

Synopsis: 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.

Leave that man alone!

Black lives matter!

He's old and decrepit!

Pedro, Feliz Navidad.


You want some?


-I got you.

I'm tired

of this, Eddie.

That sandwich

was hand-crafted.

And you

should have heard!

"Black lives matter!"

"Eddie, don't go out there,

they're gonna kill ya!"

He was quivering like

Terrence Howard at the Oscars.

See, Eddie,

that's your problem.

You play too

damn much, man.

One day, somebody gonna be

chasing your ass for real.

You know what I"a do?

I"a let them catch you.

Okay, okay.

You know the

rules, baby boy.

If you like it, you pay.

If you don't like it,

your ass pay anyway.

Nice. Nice.

Well, Isaac,

it's good running

into you again.

Man, she know she ain't never

ran a day in her life.

You gonna call me, right?

You crazy.

All right...


All right, Soror. Girl,

I'll talk to you later.


You know

you my girl and...

All right, baby girl.

See you around.


What happened to the

barbershop, Calvin?

I used to come here

to get away from women.

Especially the ones

I'll never ever

wanna see again

as long as I live.

You know you love the ladies,

especially the sistas.

Yeah, it's true,

I like the sisters. I do.

Just not that one.

But homegirl in a catsuit,

though, she could get it.

What's good, ma?

Not you, pa.

What them

pockets do, little daddy?

You can come over here

and frisk me if you like.

Now, I'm gonna keep it

real here for a second.

This was a male sanctuary.

This is the original man cave.

And now, it's just a club,

with the lights on,

and no drinks.

Yo, Isaac. It is

what it is, man.

The recession ain't never

left the South Side.

Joining forces

saved us both.

Well, change is good.

Everyone be well.

Good seeing y'all.

-I'll see you around again soon.
