Next Friday: Wednesday January 12, 1999

A companion piece to the 1995 hit comedy Friday, New Line Cinema’s Next Friday, starring Ice Cube takes up where the original left off, although this time the action switches from South Central L.A. to suburbia. In the initial Friday, a modestly budgeted sleeper that grossed $28 million and remained a Top 100 video rental for nearly three years, Craig (Ice Cube) bails his friend out of trouble, survives a climatic confrontation with Debo, the neighborhood bully, and ends up with the girl. In Next Friday the bully is back as Debo (Tommy “Tiny” Lister, Jr.), who’s spent two years behind bars, is released from prison and is bent on revenge. Fearing for his son’s safety, Craig’s father (John Witherspoon) sends his son to live with Uncle Elroy (Don “DC” Curry) and cousin Day-Day. The two have parlayed their lottery winnings into a home in the suburbs of Rancho Cucamonga. However, Craig soon learns that trouble can find you no matter where you live. Once again, forces beyond his control will test his survival skills and his commitment to family and Craig, with comic relief from Day-Day, will rise to the challenge. -- © 1999 Universal Pictures

I think it was a great movie and especially your sound track.  Your movie made me laugh.  It was worth seeing and buying the video.  Keep it up Craig, DayDay, however I really like your sense of humor.  I can't wait for your next movie.. w/lots of love.....

movie reviews suck. a critic or newspaper can not tell me what movie i should pay my damn money to see. next friday was very funny. what i will not be paying for is a usa today newspaper.

I hated that movie because my jaw got a cramp from laughing so hard. There was a lot of racial stereotypes in this move that I'm sure a lot of stupid jerks will whine about.  But, hey it's great because it's all done in FUN as in FUNNY! Way to go CRAIG! I hope to see another FRIDAY soon.

This movie is off the hook! It is better than the other Friday.  I hope they make a Friday part 3 which should be titled: "Another Friday". It should have Chris Tucker,Ice Cube,Mike Epps and the whole crew from both Friday coming together

Critics would't know funny if it came up and started beating on them with a bat!!!  It was a riot!!! It ranks up with Austin Powers and Happy Gilmore!!!!!

I got to give you guys big time promps that movie "Next Friday" was off the hook. And ofcourse Ice Cube, my boy was also off the hook. And good choice on choosing those fine a** "cholitos" especially the short one. (Mr. Minime guy with the g-string) keep it up and I dout it that anyone will make a movie funnier than that soon.                                Bye, Next Fri. #1                   QUEEEEEN07 2000

You should have a better climax next time and a better ending. Next time get a real comedian (chris tucker or eddie griffen)

I am an Africian American who went to see Next Friday and found it to be an insult to all ethnic groups.  the cursing and actions of the cast left nothing to be desired.  Friday was much better than this one and I think that this should be the last one.
