There's an audience for it, but it could have been funnier and more innocent.

Ice Cube, the flick's producer/ writer/star, should have spurned the project and just camped outside movie theaters with a bell and a tin can to beg for cash. It would have been more honest.

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

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.

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

Ice Cube isn't quite out of ripe screwball ideas, but Friday After Next spreads them pretty thin.

This is surely one of the most frantic, virulent and foul-natured Christmas season pics ever delivered by a Hollywood studio.

Lacks the spirit of the previous two, and makes all those jokes about hos and even more unmentionable subjects seem like mere splashing around in the muck.

Leisurely, waxy potpourri of messy sight gags, coarse sex jokes and all-pro bad behavior.

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.

I like my Christmas movies with more elves and snow and less pimps and ho's.

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.

Damn, Ice Cube doesn't look like he's aged a day since last Friday!
