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.

A crudely made, sometimes funny bit of porchfront humor from the 'hood.

Director Gray tries (unsuccessfully) to create a '90s Cheech and Chong with inane lavatory humour, manic facial expressions, and plenty of close-ups of a tokin' Smokey. Passť the spliff.

This is a ruder, cruder version of the hip-hop movie House Party, and it offers a fascinating glimpse at the way street life enters pop culture.

Cube is amusing, though he's really playing straight man to Tucker's frenetic and energized Smokey.

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

Writer and director are both only 25 years old -- and provide another example of why it's best to beware of young men with movie cameras.
