Did You Know?


'Chris Tucker' did not reprise his role of Smokey from the original film because he'd become a born again Christian after filming Money Talks (1997) and chose to do the Rush Hour series instead. His character is referenced throughout the film to explain his absence. See more »

Extremely funny!
15 October 2002 | by See all my reviews

Next Friday, is by far the best comedy film out there today. This time, Craig moves out of the ghetto, and into the suburbs, mainly because his dad fears that Deebo will come after Craig. Deebo has escaped from jail, and he is out to find Craig. Craig's father sends him to live with his uncle, and cousin "Day-Day". That basically sums up the story line. What made this film so funny, is the three "Jokers", and facial expressions. This movie has lots of funny jokes, and clever lines. Mike Epps' character, "Day-Day", is probably the most unique character in the film next to "Joker". I loved the screenplay for this film, mainly because it had clever lines, and funny jokes. Next Friday also has some pretty good acting, which in general make the movie even funnier. This, I think is, Mike Epps' first film, and I have to say that he did a damn good job for a first film. Like I said earlier in this review, most of the comedy comes from facial expressions, and clever jokes. I would have to say, that the funniest facial expression in this film, was when Mike Epps' character is first introduced. The character "Joker", is the funniest part of the film. Every time a joke comes out of his mouth, or any word for that matter, will make you laugh. When I first heard of this film, I really anticipated that it was pure crap, but then I saw it on TV, and I was proved wrong. This movie kicks ass. 10 out of 10.
