      Nell Minow Common Sense Media Something to offend everyone. Rated: 3/5 Dec 24, 2010 Full Review Scott Von Doviak Fort Worth Star-Telegram/DFW.com 'Twas the night before Christmas and all through the 'hood, Friday fans were wishing the new sequel was good. Dec 27, 2002 Full Review Richard Roeper Ebert & Roeper This is a terrible movie, one of the worst comedies of the year. Nov 25, 2002 Full Review Kevin Carr Fat Guys at the Movies you get what you've come to expect from the Friday movies Rated: 3.5/5 Jan 10, 2016 Full Review Michael Dequina TheMovieReport.com It's become abundantly clear that series star/writer/producer Ice Cube hasn't a clue as to why the first Friday became such a beloved cult classic in the first place.

      Daniel M It wasn't even close to the first two, but had a few funny moments. The characters in this movie weren't as entertaining as they were in the previous two. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/28/23 Full Review d h Meh. That's all. Pretty dry. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/21/23 Full Review Andre G Not as good as the other two. Still has some very funny parts. I wish Smoky would come back for one. With him, Ice Cube, and Mike Epps altogether would be hilarious. Wishful thinking! Rated 3 out of 5 stars 05/17/23 Full Review Tony M Tomato critics are trippin alright. They critique it like it's in the running for an Oscar or something. It's funny as shit and for a 3rd movie it stands well with the other two. Mike Epps and Ice Cube work well together. Just don't compare it to the original cult classic and enjoy it on its own. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 09/25/22 Full Review angel m Awful, corny and almost completely reliant on slapstick. The first is a classic, the second film was stretching it but it was at least decently funny, the third one is easily the worst and most unwatchable one. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 09/04/22 Full Review Audience Member Written by Ice Cube and directed by Marcus Raboy, the third Friday movie again was rejected by critics and embraced by the audience that it was made for. It starts on Christmas Eve as a thief breaks into the home of Craig (Cube) and Day-Day (Mike Epps), stealing everything they've bought for their family and friends. Also — the rent is due and if they don't get it soon, their landlady is going to unleash her just released from jail son Damon (Terry Crews) on them and in a violently loving fashion, if you get what I'm saying. The setting in this sequel moves from the suburbs to a strip mall, a place where their fathers — Willie (John Witherspoon) and Elroy (Don D.C. Curry) — have started a BBQ place so good you'll slap your mother. It's also where Money Mike (Katt Williams) and his main girl Donna (K.D. Aubert) have started the store Pimps and Hoes. Obviously, by the third movie you're just hoping for more hangout time with the leads and less expecting a groundbreaking effort. That said, this is a goofball bit of harmless fun, a good holiday movie to throw on if you're sick of the same films every December and makes me hope that we get one more of these movies. Somehow, I never saw a single one of these movies before, but I must confess, they made a nice break this week, a breezy bit of fun and light laughs in the midst of dark times.
