It's become abundantly clear that series star/writer/producer Ice Cube hasn't a clue as to why the first Friday became such a beloved cult classic in the first place.

Perhaps the main problem with Friday After Next is that everything is too manic to be memorable.

A South Central LA comedy with more of the flavor of Halloween, the film is more about ghetto strife that's just too agitated to, well, pause for Claus.

'Twas the night before Christmas and all through the 'hood, Friday fans were wishing the new sequel was good.

Never having seen the first two films in the series, I can't compare Friday After Next to them, but nothing would change the fact that what we have here is a load of clams left in the broiling sun for a good three days.

This is a terrible movie, one of the worst comedies of the year.

There must be an audience that enjoys the Friday series, but I wouldn't be interested in knowing any of them personally.

Neither as good as its direct ancestor nor as clever as the original Friday, this is, to put it bluntly, all seeds and stems.

I wish I could say "Thank God It's Friday", but the truth of the matter is I was glad when it was over.

All comedy is subversive, but this unrelenting bleak insistence on opting out of any opportunity for finding meaning in relationships or work just becomes sad.

Friday After Next is a lot more bluster than bite.

The only reason you should see this movie is if you have a case of masochism and an hour and a half to blow.

Writer Cube and director Marcus Raboy vigorously mix Christmas cheer and and real life, and the result is as tasty as eggnog spiked with whiskey.

You'd have to be applying pretty loose critical standards to describe Friday After Next ... as a good movie, but in the coming weeks it may certainly prove a useful one.

Friday movies are a lot like an African-American version of Seinfeld; they're really about nothing. And if you can appreciate the cultural dislocation of their urban California milieu, same as Seinfeld, they can be funny as hell.

The film definitely has an audience out there. Yet, it beats me what they found so funny as what's offered is simply quite awful.
