Friday, Next Friday and Friday After Next.
I consumed this series over this past weekend starting with and on Friday. The first film features Craig (Ice Cube) and Smokey (Chris Tucker) as 2 guys sitting on their front porch after Craig gets fired (on his day off no less).
Think Jay and Silent Bob, only not as crude, and Craig speaks. This movie was just hilarious all the way. The supporting characters are a riot and Chris Tucker is basically in his best roll as a stoner with nothing to do but rag on people.
Tiny Zeus Lister makes an appearance as Deebo – local bully and Craig’s Father has to be one of the funniest characters of all time. This movie was brilliant. A must own.
Next Friday continues but has no Chris Tucker. This was a BIG mistake. Craig on his own isn’t enough. Sure the father is back and provides laughs, and Craig’s uncle is a riot too, but there just isn’t enough going on. Plus in the first one, they were just hanging out and stuff happened, here they are more mobile so they are seeking out adventure, which is ok, but not as funny.
It was an ok movie, but disappointing after a brilliant part one.
Friday After Next – same as Next. They are too mobile and not as funny. No Chris Tucker, but the Father and Uncle are back.
Some laughs, not enough to compare to part 1.
