Why is Barbershop: The Next Cut rated PG-13? Barbershop: The Next Cut is rated PG-13 by the MPAA for sexual material and language.

Violence: Teens in a high school environment become involved in a fight: one boy is later seen holding an ice pack on his face. Two teens are approached by gang members who accuse them of being on their turf—another gang appears that protects the boys and offers them money (which they accept) with the implication they will be expected to support this gang. Shots are heard in the street and occupants of the barbershop drop to the floor in fear. Many discussions involve gun crime in South Chicago.

Sexual Content: Female buttock nudity is briefly seen. Many scenes include sexual language, crude anatomical references and innuendo. Men and women are seen embracing and kissing. A female character dresses in bra-like garment that expose most of her breasts. A woman becomes interested in a married man and makes overtures toward him. A couple argues about their ability to trust each other when they are apart. Comedic remarks are made about sexual accusations of real people like R. Kelly and Bill Cosby.

Language: A single sexual expletive is used along with frequent scatological slang, mild profanity and vulgar terms. Frequent racial slurs are heard, typically spoken by people of the race that is being insulted.

Alcohol / Drug Use: Characters drink hard liquor at a bar. A character is seen with an unlit cigar in his mouth. Other references to drugs, alcohol and tobacco use are heard.
