Ice Cube continues his winning streak as a likeable everyman in family movies with First Sunday, an initially silly, disposable comedy that picks up emotional power and authenticity by the second act. Cube plays ne’er-do-well Durell, an out-of-work Baltimore dad who needs over $17,000 to keep his ex from taking their son with her to Atlanta for good. Desperate to raise the cash but hamstrung by his self-defeating attitude and the criminal antics of his goofy sidekick, LeeJohn (Tracy Morgan), Durell gives in to temptation and decides he and LeeJohn should rob a church. The crime goes badly when it turns out a number of parishioners are in the building at the time, and a hostage situation develops. Events take a twist when the would-be thieves become the beneficiaries of Christian charity and forgiveness from the men and women they’ve kidnapped, and a bigger criminal is revealed in the congregation’s mix. A terrific supporting cast including Michael Beach, Chi McBride, Keith David, Malinda Williams, Loretta Devine, and Katt Williams bring strong humor and dignity to the film’s latter half, compensating for some unpleasant missteps (a pointless scene at a massage parlor) earlier in the story. Writer-director David E. Talbert is especially sharp during a spirited, gospel performance scene, which simply crackles on screen. --Tom Keogh

5.0 out of 5 stars You will not stop laughing Jan. 25 2010
By Rate - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Blu-ray
I knew that the movie had to be great cause Ice Cube was in it and I liked his movies. Until I saw "First Sunday" I had no idea who Katt Williams or Tracy Morgan are (Unbelievable) But now after watching it I know that Ice Cube, Katt Williams, and Tracy Morgan make a perfect trio and they should make more movies together. You will not stop laughing, promise. But this is just my opinion so watch it. "First Sunday" is worth every penny!

2.0 out of 5 stars fun performances can't quite overcome uneven script July 17 2008
By Roland E. Zwick - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
**1/2

A very appealing cast is left with little to work with in "First Sunday," a manufactured comedy whose script fails to rise to the level of its actors. Desperate for some quick cash, Durell and LeeJohn come up with a scheme to break into a local church and carry off the fund earmarked for construction of a new building. Unfortunately, this seemingly simple robbery quickly turns into a complicated hostage situation when a dozen or so of the most prominent church members unexpectedly show up on the scene.

"First Friday" does elicit a few hearty laughs, due, in large part, to its game cast and the occasional funny line scattered in and amongst the numerous clunkers. Ice Cube effectively plays straight man to Tracy Morgan`s endearingly bumbling sidekick, and they, together with the other actors, help to comprise a fine comic ensemble. The problem lies in a screenplay which often goes for the obvious joke over something truly original or clever, and which pours on the syrup to alarming proportions near the end just to ensure the movie its status as a morally upright, "feel-good" comedy.

It's a harmless enough little diversion if you have some time to kill, but the company is far more appetizing than what it is they`re dishing up.

4.0 out of 5 stars NUTTIN' BUT FUN.......!!! May 29 2008
By Dana Y. Bowles - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Ice Cube stars as a struggling young father who's life revolves around his young son. Although he has somewhat of a rocky relationship with the boy's mother, he is a mainstay in his child's life. Until his ex tells him that unless she can come up with 17K to maintain her beauty salon, she'll have to move to Atlanta. Determined not to let his son leave the city of Baltimore, Cube teams up with childhood friend LeeJohn (Tracy Morgan) to rob an inner city church....but when things don't go exactly as planned, the two instead find themselves being ministered to by the church's congregation (Loretta Devine, Katt Williams).....and everyone discovers that an even bigger rat may be hiding amidst the holier than thou.
Another respectable product by Cube....reinforcing his credibility as an actor/producer. Comedic relief is abundant thanks to Katt Williams and Tracy Morgan...I laughed out loud thoughout. If you're looking for something fun and light with an undercurrent of seriousness, you've found it. Grab the popcorn and enjoy.

3.0 out of 5 stars Katt Williams Is So Funny!! June 18 2013
By Katrina L. Burchett - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Durell Washington (Ice Cube) loves his son and he doesn't want him to move to Atlanta. The only way the two of them will be able to stay together is if he can come up with a large sum of money. It's not his idea to rob a church, but he goes along with it and all kinds of problems arise.

First Sunday has good actors and a few good messages. I don't think this comedy would have been very funny, though, if it wasn't for Katt Williams. The movie became enjoyable when his character, Ricky, was introduced. I always appreciate a good belly laugh and Katt's quick-witted comebacks were hilarious! I don't think I'd be interested in his raw standup comedy, but he was great in this movie. He's so good at what he does, I wouldn't be surprised if he adlibbed the entire time.
