Bounty hunter Bucum chases bail-jumper Reggie, who runs right into the scene of a diamond heist and murder and gets shot at as well. Later they become partners in their pursuit of the $20M in diamonds and lottery ticket. Their women join.
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
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 »

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 »
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
