Watched this film and the sequel today, and its decent and funny at times, but the acting is dire from Ice Cube( not a huge problem in a comedy film imo, but you would still expect some sort of quality, dude looks like he forgot his lines most of the time lol) and the funny moments were too repetetive or too inconsistent.

If you wanna compare it to other slapstick African American comedy films, stuff like "How High" and "Soul Plane" was quality

It's what you would call a 'B' movie, cult classic.

i'm not a huge fan (the first 'friday' is the shit though)...but the appeal is obvious...they're stoner movies...that alone crosses boundaries of race and class...plus everybody knows guys like smokey and dede, or is that guy...everybody knows a deebo...like the characters are hood but they're defining characteristics are universal.

plus it's got john witherspoon who kills in everything.

they are like the modern 'cheech and chong' movies.

smh at comparing it to soul plane and how high.

LOL@Soul Plane is quality hahahahahahahahahahahahaha. I wouldn't say that but it's funny. I had my doubts about Soul Plane at first but i actually liked it. Friday is a classic and it's a shame Chris Tucker fell off after that. He should've been in the other Friday movies. I don't understand how he continued to do Rush Hour movies but he didn't wanna do the other Friday movies. He would've made a lot of money if he had been in the other Friday movies because everybody loved him in the first one. Next Friday got slept on. Pinky played by Clifton Powell had me rolling especially the scene when he goes to his record store and curses out Ice Cube and he keeps telling him to shut up everytime he asks him a question hahahahahahahahahahahaha. Another actor that was funny in Next Friday is standup comic Don DC Curry. LOL@him saying to Mike Epps, hey Dayday that crazy bitch out there again hahahahahahahahahahaha. African dude Michael Blackson that's a standup comic also had me rolling in Next Friday.


LOL@Michael saying you muthafuckas hahahahahahahaha. What the fuck is this? You muthafuckas LOL. What is this huh? This is wack. I can't get jiggy with this shit LOL. Where's your damn manager? That pink muthafucka LOL. You look like the player hater who sold me this shit LOL. Give me back my damn money and i don't have no receipt LOL. I don't have no damn cover. Kiss my ass, so what hahahahahahahahahaha. You know who you fucking with? Mike Epps said Bishop Tutu LOL. Try again muthafucka. Mike said Winnie Mandela LOL. Try again muthafucka LOL. Mike said just a ugly ass black dude hahahahahahahahaha. When Ice Cube came in the record store and pushed Michael, he said please don't hit me, don't hit me. This is John Blaze. I can get jiggy with this LOL. I'm just a bitch ass nigga hahahahahahahahahaha. Please don't hit me LOL.

Yeah he is funny. I've seen him do standup before on BET's Comicview. Does Comicview still come on? I haven't seen it in a long time. I saw him in a wack movie with Master P and AJ Johnson called Repos. I think that's the name of it. It's a straight to video movie. AJ Johnson is another slept on standup comic/actor. He's been in a lot of classic black movies like Menace II Society(he had a small part in the scene with Samuel Jackson), Friday, The Players Club, How To Be A Player, House Party 3. I'm surprised nobody mentions Ice Cube's The Players Club movie being one of his funniest movies. Props to him for directing a classic movie and being in it. He had a good cast such as Bernie Mac, Jamie Foxx, Charles Murphy, Faizon Love, Terrence Howard, John Amos, LisaRaye, Monica Calhoun, AJ Johnson, Crystale Wilson. His We Be Clubbin song on the soundtrack is the shit.

^^^player's club is underrated...that was softcore porn for me when i was like 12 lol...lisa raye, wow.

CharlesJones
06-05-2010, 12:48 PM
LisaRaye is hot. She still got it going on and she's 43 years old. She'll be 44 September 23rd which is 3 days after my birthday. It sucks that her acting career never took off but she's getting money other ways from modeling and she might have a clothing line or perfume product. I've been wanting to fuck her for awhile. When i first saw her in The Players Club, i've been hooked ever since. I got several pictures of her on my bedroom wall. You should see the recent pictures she did for Black Men's magazine. On the cover, she's wearing a bikini in a desert. LOL@Bernie Mac dissing Faizon Love in The Players Club when he said you better wear your bulletproof vest all day, all muthafucking day, you fat muthafucka hahahahahahahahahahahaha. He called John Amos a ugly muthafucka LOL. LOL@Bernie saying to Jamie Foxx, Blue if i raise up from here it's gonna be trouble trouble hahahahahahahahahaha. I miss Bernie Mac. He was so funny.

You talking about Chris Tucker's dad Renaldo Rey in Friday. He is funny. He had a small part in White Men Can't Jump with Wesley Snipes. He said some funny stuff to this black dude who used to be a former NBA player named Marques Johnson in the movie when he tried to rob the store he worked at. Marques said to him, give me your money. Renaldo said Raymond is that you? LOL. He said naw naw this ain't Raymond LOL. Renaldo said take off that damn mask and put that gun down LOL. What you trying to do? Marques said i need some money man. I got some guys at the court trying to bet me on a game. Gimme some money man LOL. Renaldo said get the fuck outta here LOL. Renaldo also was in House Party 3 movie and he was funny in that. Bernie Mac called his wife jawbone cause she could suck a good dick LOL. Renaldo said don't talk about my ho like that, i mean my wife hahahahahahahahahahaha.

^^^it was alright...there were some funny and clever bits, but the scenes with eddie winslow and the other drug dealer riding around and talking at the storage were so flat and boring, it's like they were imported from some low budget bet crime drama. faison ,mos def, and the hot puerto rican chick carried that movie

how can you not like friday?

HOW CAN YOU LIKE SOUL PLANE??

dude, get a clue.

The first Friday is a great film. Its not just a stereotype based, one note, one dimensional black comedy like the majority of them are. Its a multidimensional film, theres comedy but then the film also takes a serious and dramatic turn and pulls this off very well. You have a great time following Craig and Dede through a realistic story about hanging out around the neighborhood. The characters are mostly all fleshed out, realistic, and identifiable and not just blatant stereotypes (although this changes in the following friday movies).

06-10-2010, 07:10 AM
its funny...y u dont think its funny as much is because u just saw it..u needed to see it when it was just coming out..u got all the new movie shit in your head like the hangover that saturates the movie if u are now just watching it..like 10 years from now when some one hits up hangover for the first aint gonna think its 2 funny ...cuz of the newer funny movies they seen that are way funnier..if get what im saying

Repos movie with Master P and Michael Blackson is wack. I wasn't laughing at all. Next Day Air movie is alright but some scenes were kinda boring. My bad, Renaldo Rey was DJ Pooh's dad in Friday.
