Critic Reviews for Next Friday

All Critics (77) | Top Critics (24) | Fresh (13) | Rotten (51) | DVD (15)

Next Friday is a truly awful film.

January 1, 2000
Film.com
Top Critic

The flick could use Chris Tucker, co-star of the first Friday, AWOL in the sequel. He probably took a look at the script and realized this sequel was no reason to shout, 'T.G.I.F.'

Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Top Critic

One measure of its desperation and lack of respect for its audience is the frequency with which it labors to wring humor from flatulence and excrement gags.

January 1, 2000
Boston Globe
Top Critic

Next Friday will eventually be remembered as a disposable farce, but one that leaves a happy memory.

Top Critic

Its humor batting average would earn anybody an MVP.

Houston Chronicle
Top Critic

Lazy, dumb, and misogynistic.

Full Review… | December 26, 2010
Common Sense Media

[Cube abandons] the heavy-on-dialogue rhythm in favor of needless subplots rife with hijinks.

Full Review… | August 1, 2003
Reel Film Reviews

Still, in the Wayans Brothers tradition, a few of the vignettes are savvy and effective.

Full Review… | September 9, 2002
Film Journal International

Most of the characters are so foolish and short-sighted that they can't see beyond the last puff of the fattie they're smoking.

January 1, 2000
St. Paul Pioneer Press

When you feel like you have to explain the pop culture references in your gags, your movie is in trouble.

January 1, 2000
Charlotte Observer

Next Friday, after its midway mark, just lumbers until it fizzles out.

Seattle Post-Intelligencer

And make no mistake about it, this unfunny farce is as awful as a sequel can get.

Full Review… | January 1, 2000
Deseret News, Salt Lake City

A stupid, petulant exercise in racism and misogyny.

January 1, 2000
Greenwich Village Gazette

Not a giggle, not a smile nor a smirk came out or across my face.

San Diego Union-Tribune

In laying on all the outrageousness, Ice Cube sacrifices a key element to Friday's appeal: a surprising amount of heart.

A heaping piece of rancid garbage.

Surely a better title would have been 'Saturday'.

About as deep as an empty wading pool.

Audience Reviews for Next Friday

Although far less memorable than the original, Next Friday still is able to produce some laughter, even when the film is obviously inconsistent, immoral and offensively gag-filled. 4/5

A half wit follow up to a semi-descent movie. When Chris Tucker won't sign up for a sequel, it's usually a bad sign. Mike Epps was a horrible addition to the cast, reducing everything to bad punchlines. While it does have some good elements, the bad certainly outweighs the good.

A decent sequel.

Super Reviewer

Probably the weakest out of the trilogy, but still not that bad. The Mexican guy is super-annoying and very stereotypical, but a break from the big-as-fuck villains like Deebo and Damon. Epps is a nice change of pace from Tucker.
