      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Next Friday lacks the fun of the original Friday. The movie is messy and plotless and relies on unfunny vulgar gags.

      Owen Gleiberman Entertainment Weekly Rated: C+ Sep 7, 2011 Full Review Nell Minow Common Sense Media Lazy, dumb, and misogynistic. Rated: 2/5 Dec 26, 2010 Full Review Entertainment Weekly Rated: C+ Jan 12, 2000 Full Review Tony Black Cultural Conversation While outwardly amusing, with plenty of scatological and farcical gags, it is an example of the kind of diminishing sequel that the early 2000's would deliver in spades. Rated: 2/5 Feb 16, 2021 Full Review Kaleem Aftab The List Sadly, Epps's effort to replace Tucker as Cube's sidekick only downgrades the sequel. Otherwise, Next Friday has more of everything -- More importantly, however, Next Friday packs in more gags than the original.

      Daniel M Forgot how much I loved this movie back in the day. Just as good as the first IMO with characters that were just as enjoyable as the first movie. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review d h Somehow they managed to make a pretty funny sequel without one of the two main characters. Deydey is a funny sidekick. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/21/23 Full Review Andre G Not as good as the first. Still really hilarious. This movie could have been the funniest movie ever made if Chris Tucker was in it too. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 05/17/23 Full Review Audience Member Best movie out of the three Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/03/23 Full Review Audience Member This was absolutely hilarious! Just as funny as the first one in my opinion. Definitely worth a watch if you liked "Friday!" Being very familiar with Rancho Cucamonga, the fact that it's set there was just a bonus. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Audience Member Written by Ice Cube and directed by Steve Carr, who also worked with Cube on Are We There Yet?, Next Friday made $60 million off an $11 million budget, defying critics who hated the films — again, much lilke Cheech and Chong. When Deebo escapes from prison to get revenge on Craig, Craig's father Willie moves him to Rancho Cucamonga to live with his uncle Elroy (Don D.C. Curry), who has just won the lottery, and cousin Day-Day (Mike Epps). Day-Day makes a decent replacement for Smoky, as Chris Tucker didn't come back for the second movie as he became a born again Christian. Beyond dealing with the threat of an escaped Deebo, now Craig and Day-Day must avoid baby mamas, a gang called the Jokers and try to keep Day-Day's record store job. While the move to the suburbs offers some fun joke, Tucker's prescence is definitely missed. Then again, I find myself loving that Ice Cube is so loveable in these films, particularly after albums like "AmeriKKKa's Most Wanted" in which he unleashed venomous hatred on nearly every ethnicity and human being within the reach of his booming voice.
