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.Written by
The neighborhood where the film takes place is the same street where the film's director, F. Gary Gray, grew up in South Central, Los Angeles. Principal houses that were used for filming were houses of old friends of the director. The scene where Deebo punches Red into the air is the house that Gray grew up in. See more »
When Craig is lying in bed the clock changed to 12:00, But when he sits up to and claps off the lights the clock still says 11:59. See more »
[Talking to Dana]
You see what I said to tell us before you leave the house.
[Talking to Felisha]
Look at your face! Look at your face!
It's going to be okay.
No, look at your face.
[Talking to Deebo]
Who do you think you are?
Girl what are you talking about?
You know what I'm talking about, punk. You hit my sister like if she was a fucking man.
She had no business going through my pants when I was asleep!
My sister don't need to steal nothing from your broke ass all right.
It's best for you to ...

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".
Believe me, If you could relate to SMOKEY and CRAIG, then you would see why this flick is so funny! While Dumb & Dumber and Austin Powers:The Spy Who Shagged Me, had me rollin' at times, it didn't do enough to throw me at that front porch where our two main characters sit and do nothing but get high and jive!
Yeah I can understand those critics who say "what's the point"? But in this flick, You don't need a point! Just plain and simple laughs! This is already a camp classic in case y'all don"t know! Please give it a look.
