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).
