Story of a promising high school basketball star and his relationships with two brothers, one a drug dealer and the other a former basketball star fallen on hard times and now employed as a security guard.
It is Friday and Craig Jones (Ice Cube) is unemployed, having, yesterday, been fired. . 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.Written by
In the theatrical version, we are immediately introduced to the Jones family. The extended version of the film introduces viewers to several supporting characters (Deebo, Ezal, Stanley, etc.) before the Jones Family. See more »

TV versions also include the following scenes:
Differant take of Craig and Smokey in Smokey's room, where the marijuana poster is shown later in the scene in place of Smokey's marijuana smoking.
-Craig goes into his sister's room and asks for his Guess shirt, and asks her to hook him up with her friend. He then tells it's 12:30 (really it's 8:30) causing her quickly jump out of bed.
-Two of the kids from ice cream truck scene watch Ezal run by carrying two speakers, and talk about how he tried to rob them. Stanley then comes out and sprays them with a hose to get them off his lawn.
Craig goes to see what his dad wants, and has to get the TV Guide for him (which is about a foot away). A continuity error also appears showing the TV Guide on the bed, then the table, then the bed, then the table, before Craig gets it for him.
Widescreen versions of the film cut off half of Smokey's license plate, so you never see what it actually says. On TV, it's blurred out, and VHS copies show the entire plate reading "FCK IT".
Chris Tucker and Ice Cube what more do you want for a Movie like this!? This movie was funny, bright and original. theirs not a point in the movie where it goes dull or boring.
Its starts off when Craig (Cube) wakes up on a Friday morning with his friend Smokey (Tucker) outside of his house for only Smokey to find out Craig got fired on his day off, Smokey tries helping Craig feel better by Rolling him Joints and drinking beer, Craig doesn't touch weed, until Smokey forces him to, they both end up getting high, Along comes Big Worm, the man that gives Smokey the weed to sell, only for Smokey to smoke, later on Big Worm finds out Smokey doesn't have the cash to cough up so Big Worm gives Smokey a deadline warning, or a drive-by. Craig has nothing to do with it, but nothing matters no more.
Through out the movie comes local bully's, Stupid Neighbours, dumb friends, Early 90's rap music, drive-by's, Horney midgets, fights and Craig & Smokey. A lot can go down between Thursday and Saturday!
