Co-scriptwriters Ice Cube, DJ Pooh, and director F. Gary Gray find as much humor in well-observed detail as in the oddities of the film's world.

Friday has energy, and sass, and the nerve to suggest that the line between tragedy and comedy may be in the bloodshot eye of the beholder.

The original installment in the outrageous slacker trilogy starring Ice Cube.

A crudely made, sometimes funny bit of porchfront humor from the 'hood.
July 8, 2005
Synthesizes blaxploitation and pot-comedy genres and melds them into a colossus of unending laughs.

Hilarious hip-hop ghetto comedy. Chris Tucker's role as "Smokey" sets this one apart from it's mediocre sequels.

An energetic and genuinely funny low-budget flick. This is why we wade through all the really bad ones; to find the unexpected pieces of comedy gold.

Dirty, offensive, infantile and may launch a few sanctimonious opinion columns. And I mean that in the nicest way.
