Craig and Day Day have finally moved out of their parents houses and into their own crib. The cousins work nights at a local mall as security guards. When their house is robbed on Christmas... See full summary »
It is Friday and Craig Jones (Ice Cube) is unemployed, having, yesterday, been fired. He is lounging around his house with his friend Smokey (Chris Tucker), a rather incompetent weed dealer. Smokey's problem is that he tends to smoke, rather than sell, his product. This has lead to trouble with Smokey's supplier, Big Worm, who now wants his money, or his product back, or Smokey is a dead man. Then there's Deebo, the local bully, plus Craig's jealous, psychotic girlfriend, Joi, and Debbie, the neighbour Craig has a crush on. A lot can happen while lounging around your house on a Friday.

The song being played on Smokey's car while Smokey and Craig were about to go to a store was performed by Dr. Dre, a former member of N.W.A. just like Ice Cube (Craig). It is also remembered that Dr. Dre along with other N.W.A. member were once dissed by Ice Cube through his rap "No Vaseline" though during the making of this film they've already settled down their differences.

The chair that Smokey moves from the yard onto the porch when he and Craig first come outside can clearly be seen sitting on the porch in the opening credits, when no one is up yet. See more »
Craig, you know what your problem is? You have no game.
What do you know about game? I got ALL the game.
Now your father... he has game.
[coming out of the bathroom]
Don't nobody go in the bathroom for about 35, 45 minutes. Somebody open up a window.
You call that game?

When someone asks me which movie i have seen the most times, i have to answer Friday. I know the movie pretty much verbatim, and have seen it well over 30 times. Chris Tucker is one of the funniest people ever. This is his best performance, followed closely by Rush Hour. There are so many funny moments in this movie it would be impossible to name them all here. My favorites would have to be when Smokey meets his blind date, who turns out to be fat and bald, and the scenes where Deebo confronts Smokey and Craig, played by Ice Cube. The movie has a hilarious supporting cast, including John Witherspoon, Tiny Lister, and Bernie Mac. Critics don't know anything. If you ever have a chance to see this and enjoy urban comedy and Chris Tucker, don't even hesitate to watch. 10/10
