Lazy, dumb, and misogynistic.

[Cube abandons] the heavy-on-dialogue rhythm in favor of needless subplots rife with hijinks.

Still, in the Wayans Brothers tradition, a few of the vignettes are savvy and effective.

Notable chiefly for feeding a stereotype of blacks as shiftless layabouts interested mainly in recreational drugs and irresponsible sex.

Next Friday will eventually be remembered as a disposable farce, but one that leaves a happy memory.

Reduced to multiple skits woven together with a hyped soundtrack.

Despite the absence of Chris Tucker, who launched his career in Friday, this sequel manages to be funny despite its unevenness.

If your idea of comedy is falling in doggie-doo or watching guys get stoned and foolish, you'll have a ball.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10

A lifeless follow-up.

One measure of its desperation and lack of respect for its audience is the frequency with which it labors to wring humor from flatulence and excrement gags.

Most of the humor is about as fresh as the air left behind whenever Witherspoon uses a toilet.

It's vulgar and raggy, but also very funny.

If there were any justice, Next Friday would be the last Friday. Somehow, I fear the first weekend grosses will make that unlikely.

The real problem with Next Friday is that the whole movie is so ineptly written and directed that its 90 minutes seem to take twice as long.

Next Friday is an extremely funny movie, and this is coming from someone who barely cracked a smile during Friday, the first installment of this franchise.

I admit I had a good time at Next Friday. All I'm saying is, don't pay more than matinee price for the privilege.
