Next Friday

Critics Consensus

Next Friday lacks the fun of the original Friday. The movie is messy and plotless and relies on unfunny vulgar gags.

Audience Reviews for Next Friday

  • Oct 03, 2017
    The sequel has none of the charm of the original film, the liveliness of Tucker is the ingredient missing here. Ice Cube is notorious for playing the same character, never extends from the basic humour and the film suffers for it. One of the key issues is the recycled plot elements, not uncommon for sequels, e.g. The Hangover part 2. The film needed more development and some depth injected into the story, the film hinged off the success of the forst film and is quite tiresome to watch. 03-10-2017.

    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.

    The main character is again ICE CUBE and his cousin DAE DAE played by Mike Epps. Dae Dae is the homeboy who replaced Chris Tucker (and does a great job at it also). Deebo (Tiny Lister) is still looking for his revenge on Craig. So Craig's father hides him in the posh Beverly Hills district where he has relatives who won the lottery. However his family has wasted all the money they've won and they still need to pay for their new house. If they don't get the money, they'll be evicted. Craig and Day-Day try to find a way to get the money to keep the house. Every place has its friendly people and every place has its bullies who in Rancho Cucamonga take shape of three Latino thugs called the Joker brothers. Craig and Day Day get into some hilarious scrapes as they try and get the money together to stop Elroy's house being repossessed for unpaid tax bills. The Joker's women provided some good eye candy and Lisa Rodriguez (The Jokers? sister and Craig?s love interest) was hot as well. Cube is a good writer, and he came up with such original lines like, "You ever heard of El Nino?" "Yes." "Well, this is El Negro." NEXT FRIDAY provides laughs if you just watch the movie and try not to look for flaws.
