Synopsis


Friday
Hard-core rapper Ice Cube, after appearing in such hard-hitting films as Boyz 'N the Hood and Higher Learning, played his first comic role in this picture he co-wrote with frequent musical collaborator DJ Pooh. Craig (Ice Cube) manages to get fired on his day off (though he claims it's through no fault of his own) and spends the day hanging out with his buddy Smokey (Chris Tucker) and trying to avoid his father (John Witherspoon), who wants him to find another job immediately. Smokey (whose name might have something to do with his tremendous fondness for marijuana) has even more serious problems; he was given $200 worth of weed to sell by Big Worm (Faizon Love), but he ended up smoking it instead, and if he can't come up with the money by the end of the day, he'll be in a world of hurt (and will put Craig in the same place just for being his friend). And Deebo (Tom "Tiny" Lister, Jr.), a gargantuan bully who roams the neighborhood on his bicycle, has it in for Craig, while Craig tries his best just to stay out of his way. As one would expect, Friday features a strong hip-hop soundtrack, featuring tracks by such artists as Dr. Dre, Cypress Hill, Mack 10, and Funkdoobiest, as well as old-school R&B selections from The Isley Brothers, Roger, and Rose Royce. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

Friday After Next
The gang from Friday and Next Friday are back in this urban comedy, in which Craig (Ice Cube) and Day-Day (Mike Epps) have finally moved out of their respective parents' homes and gotten an apartment together. However, a bogus neighborhood Santa Claus (Rickey Smiley) decides to help Craig and Day-Day share the wealth by robbing their apartment, and when he rips off their stereo, he also makes off with their rent money, which was hidden in the speaker cabinets. Desperate to make rent and have some money for Christmas presents, Craig and Day-Day land jobs at a local strip mall, where their fathers, Mr. Jones (John Witherspoon) and Uncle Elroy (Don "D.C." Curry), have gone into business together running a barbecue joint. Craig and Day-Day are installed as security guards, and while Craig tries to make time with Donna (K.D. Aubert), a saleswoman at the Pimp N' Ho's Boutique, and keep things orderly at Holy Moly's Doughnut Shop, Day-Day attempts to transform himself into a master of crime-fighting, which causes a lot more problems than it solves. Friday After Next is the first feature film from director Marcus Raboy, who previously directed music videos for Sting, Li'l Kim, Staind, and Friday After Next star Ice Cube. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

Next Friday
In this sequel to the urban comedy Friday, rap music star Ice Cube returns as Craig Jones, a streetwise man from South Central Los Angeles who has a knack for getting into trouble. This time out, Craig is still trying to outsmart neighborhood bully Debo (Tommy "Tiny" Lister Jr.); after Craig gets the better of Debo in a fist fight, Debo is determined to flatten Craig in a rematch. Looking to stay out of Debo's way, Craig decides that it would be a good time to visit his cousin (Mike Epps) and uncle (Don "DC" Curry), who have recently won the lottery and moved into a spacious new home in the suburbs. Like Friday, Next Friday was written by Ice Cube and his frequent musical collaborator DJ Pooh; music video director Steve Carr made his feature debut with this film. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

    Bought it for the first one alone

    I really only wanted the first Friday. Written by Ice Cube, Friday is a hilarious comedy that takes an interesting look at the city of Compton, CA. A complete 180 to the tone of Boyz in the Hood that dealt with a lot of the same subject matter but in a brutally honest light. Friday starts funny and keeps up the jokes all the way through. At times verging on too ridiculous but the script is light and fun. Ice Cube shows he can do more than just be a great rapper, he wrote the script and is the lead. Chris Tucker is absolutely perfect for the sidekick. The man was born to do comedy. This DVD set comes with the two follow ups that are each more ridiculous than the previous one. They are worth watching at least once but the DVD set is worth buying for the first alone.

    I love that they have put all three in a single collection, but I hate the fact that the two latest movies were put on a flippy DVD! I HATE FLIPPIES!!! You know that they tend to get scratched up if you don't handle them with super care and caution!!! Why would you put the oldest movie on a single DVD and the latest two movies on a flippy!? If most people are like me then they will tend to watch the latest two the most!

    Ha Ha! I love these movies; especially the first Friday. Bye Felicia! Ice Cube definitely has a nice side. Not everything in the Hood is bad or negative. You can't go wrong with these films! I hope that you will enjoy if you decide to buy this.

    The movies we got are in perfect condition and are very funny, however, the second disc is missing. I was very upset because I gave this to my boyfriend as part of a birthday gift.
