Storyline

Debo has escaped from prison and is looking to get revenge on Craig. So Craig's dad takes him to Rancho Cucamonga to hide out with his Uncle Elroy and cousin Day-Day, who moved to the suburbs after winning the lottery. But once he gets there, Craig and Day-Day have a set of suburban misadventures that make his South Central experiences look tame. Written by <jgp3553@excite.com>

Alternate Versions

The DVD edition uses stills from a cut scene from the film (of Stanley and an unnamed woman, meeting at Rancho Cucamonga with a relator, who was credited for appearing in the movie, despite not being in the final cut) during its menus. Yet, this scene is not included on the disc in any form other than those still pictures. See more »

Not that great
14 July 2003 | by csweetleaf2See all my reviews

When I first heard that Next Friday was coming to the theater, I was excited but unfortunately it never came to the theater in my hometown but when we rented it on video, I was actually quite dissapointed cause it was a basic rehash of the original with a lot less laughs, while this movie still contains some funny parts it just wasn't the same like the original and I wish that Smokey (Chris Tucker) was in this movie, Day Day (Mike Epps) wasn't half as funny as Chris Tucker, but Ice Cube, John Witherspoon and Tiny Lister (as Deebo) does a great job for what they got.

Overall this movie isn't a big letdown or a waste of time, it just doesn't come close to the original's standards, if you liked the first Friday or like gangsta comedies, then you'll like Next Friday. 5/10
