“Barbershop: The Next Cut” earns unprecedented 91% on Rotten Tomatoes in nationwide first weekend outing.

In what looks to be a landslide stamp of approval, “Barbershop: The Next Cut” is soaring in moviegoer and movie critics ratings as it is currently hitting the 91% “Fresh” marker on the ever popular Rotten Tomatoes online site.  Certainly, this must be giving Warner Bros. Pictures, MGM and New Line Cinema some ideas about whether to push for a “Barbershop” movie number four.

The other movie that is giving “Barbershop: The Next Cut, ” a run for it’s money on the vaunted ‘tomatometer’ is “The Jungle Book” from Disney, which also opened nationwide this Friday, April 15, 2016.  However, as “The Jungle Book” went out with considerably higher expectations than “Barbershop:The Next Cut,” as assumed ahead of time by those who professionally watch, live and die by movie numbers and movie performance, this critical thumbs up is just another prized feather in “Barbershop:The Next Cut” producer and star Ice Cube’s cinematic cap.
