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

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.

November 22, 2002
The jokes are sophomoric, stereotypes are sprinkled everywhere and the acting ranges from bad to bodacious.

November 22, 2002
Leisurely, waxy potpourri of messy sight gags, coarse sex jokes and all-pro bad behavior.

A raucous, riotous, blisteringly obscene comedy.

All this South Central color gives Friday After Next a lived-in feel that endears you to the characters and the way they live.

Cube and Epps play off each other well, but the comedy's success lies mostly in its talented stable of supporting actors.

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

I didn't laugh at the ongoing efforts of Cube, and his skinny buddy Mike Epps, to make like Laurel and Hardy 'n the hood.

It's bedeviled by labored writing and slack direction.

November 22, 2002
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.
November 21, 2002
Cranks up an impressive amount of energy considering that it's the third installment.

The constant flow of calamities spotlights a lot of talented and funny people under music video veteran Marcus Raboy's buoyant, good-natured direction.

Just for fun -- a break from shopping, tree trimming, cooking, cleaning, wrapping and all the rest.

Humor doesn't get much broader or thinner than this.

November 21, 2002
This is surely one of the most frantic, virulent and foul-natured Christmas season pics ever delivered by a Hollywood studio.

To call this film a lump of coal would only be to flatter it.

November 21, 2002
Loud, chaotic and largely unfunny.
November 21, 2002
It's still loud, crude and lewd but without the loopy energy and bright characterizations that helped to distract from the fact that there was never much going on in the plot department.
November 21, 2002
The movie often feels as if it were just marking time, counting on your memory of the first two films to make you laugh at characters who seemed much funnier, and less belabored, seven years ago.

Hews to the Sequel Curve (first one good, the rest increasingly mediocre).

Friday After Next has the same problem that Next Friday did -- it's called Where's Chris Tucker When You Need Him?

A manically generous Christmas vaudeville.
