Product Description

Ice Cube/Lister/Witherspoon/Pi ~ Next Friday

Amazon.ca

Ice Cube wrote and stars as Craig in this sequel to Friday, which he also wrote. His nemesis from that film, neighborhood bully Debo (Tommy "Tiny" Lister Jr.), has just escaped from county jail and is out to get revenge. To protect Craig, Craig's father (John Witherspoon) sends his son to stay with his Uncle Elroy (Don "DC" Curry), who won the lottery and bought a house in Rancho Cucamonga. Craig expects the suburbs to be dull, but no sooner has he arrived than conflicts arise: The neighbors are hostile hoods, his cousin's girlfriend is out for blood and child support, and the house is about to be seized because of unpaid taxes. It's up to Craig and his cousin Day-Day (Mike Epps) to solve these problems before the day is over. It's a rambling, loose movie, but a genuinely entertaining one. Ice Cube doesn't write punch lines--though funny lines abound. He writes richly comic characters that speak in virtual arias of bragging, complaining, and scamming. Sure, some of the characters are stereotypes and many of the jokes are about drugs and scatology--but that's been the basis of humor since Plautus and Molière. The rhythmic energy of Ice Cube's dialogue and the easy charisma of his performance make Next Friday thoroughly enjoyable. --Bret Fetzer

Ice Cube returns for the second installment in the "Friday" franchise. This time, he's moving out of the hood and into his rich uncle's home in Rancho Cucamonga. Chris Tucker's out of the picture and in his place is Mike Epps as Cube's wacky cousin. Also returning for this one are John Witherspoon and Tiny "Zeus" Lister but a majority of the characters are brand new to the series with Don "D.C." Curry, Tamala Jones, Clifton Powell, Justin Pierce, and Sticky Fingaz joining the ensemble cast.
"Next Friday" has Craig moving out to the 'burbs when he learns that the neighborhood bully, Deebo (Lister) has escaped from prison and is looking for him. The suburbs prove to be just as much trouble as he has to deal with the Latino thugs who live next door, a trigger-happy record store owner, and his cousin's obsessive ex-girlfriend. When it turns out that his uncle has just 24 hours to come up with some money to cover some unpaid taxes on the house, Cube devises a plan that has him, his cousin, Day-Day (Epps), and their token white friend (the late Justin Pierce) breaking into the next door neighbor's house.
"Next Friday" is a decent follow-up but the loss of co-writer DJ Pooh and star Chris Tucker is a lot to get over. Epps puts in a humorous comedic performance but he's no Tucker. The new characters are hit and miss. Amy Hill's Asian neighbor is a weak and tired sterotype-driven character. If you can't tell that Hill isn't Korean by looking at her, her awful attempt at an accent will give it away. Jacob Vargas as the loud-mouthed Latio neighbor is entertaining though they seemed to have run out of material for him in some areas.

"Next Friday" had alot of jokes in it however not all of them hit the mark and unlike "Friday" the jokes are mostly slapstick comedy then they are crude.But at least the movie gives a back story to the departure of Smokey who was played by Chris Tucker.
But the movie is about Craig who is forced to move to his Uncle Elroy's and cousin Day-Days house due to the fact that the bully from the first movie Deebo (Tommy "Tiny" Lister Jr) who just busted out of jail to seek his revenge against Craig.During the time Craig spends at the house he gets into all sorts of trouble including beating up Day-Days boss Pinky at "Pinky's Record Store" and falling in love with a mexican girl across the street.
But after Day-Day and Uncle Elroy find out they could lose the house unless they come up with thirty five thousand dollars in one day.The other thing is this whole movie takes place in one day obviously Friday.Most of the stuff that happens in this movie would take a lot longer than that,a lot longer.But if you
liked "Friday" you should check this one out.C+

Oh my goodness, why did they have to make this [stuff] and then turn around and make another one. I absolutely detest this movie! First of all no Chris Tucker, second of all it was just a rehash of the same plot as the first one, and third of all it wasn't funny.
No Chris Tucker is definetely a bad thing, but I understand that he didn't want to do it again. Ice Cube could have gotten a replacement that was at least remotely close to being as funny as Chris. But he settled for no talent Mike Epps, he's whiny, annoying, not funny at all, and has no chemistry with Ice Cube. You could tell Craig was superior to Day Day, at least with Craig and Smokey they were pretty much equal, Smokey didn't let Craig run all over him. Have you notice that Mike has only been in Ice Cube movies because nobody else wants him (and who would with talents like Chris Tucker, Martin, and Bernie Mac to name a few out there who are actually funny), okay yeah he had a small part in How High, like that movie is real credible. Anyway it might have been better if Cube could have gotten somebody other than Mike Epps to be his sidekick.
If I wanted to see the same storyline rehashed from the first, then I would just watch the first movie at least I can see Chris Tucker rather than Mike Epps.
Like I before, this one was not funny, I think Kim Whitley and the mexicans got a light chuckle out of me, but other than that I didn't really laugh. Word of advice, if you want to see a classic movie that makes you laugh throughout the whole movie, stick to Friday.

This movie isn't as good as its predcessor. But then again, the original set a precedent that would be difficult to beat for ANY comedy, including this one. That said, this is still a VERY hilarious movie that is worth watching for pure entertainment value.
The plot is very much a rehash of the original - it's another Friday, and Craig Jones has another set of problems to face. His arch-nemesis, Deebo, has escaped from prison and is after him, so Craig's father decides to hide him out in a suburban area where his Uncle Elroy bought a luxury home after winning the lottery. Craig expects the area to be peaceful - but the opposite turns out to be true. The next-door neighbors are the Joker brothers, a trio of Mexican players with a mean dog named Chico and a bone to pick with Craig and Day-Day. Day-Day's old squeeze, D'Wana is after him for impregnating her, and takes her anger out on his new BMW. Worst of all, Uncle Elroy has spent all of his money on Viagra and now can't pay his taxes, meaning that the house is going to be seized and auctioned off the next day unless Craig and Day-Day can figure out a way to get the money ahead of time. Oh, yeah, and Deebo is hot on Craig's trail and soon to catch up to him.
Many people seem to be dissapointed by the fact that Chris Tucker's character, Smokey, who drove the original film as much as Ice Cube himself, is absent from this movie. I was a little dissapointed, but frankly, this movie introduces plenty of hilarious new characters to compensate. For me personally, the shortest Joker brother (Jacob Vargas) really made this film funny with his Mexican stereotype humor, even if his screen time was mostly limited to the last third or so of the film.
