  1. Fast and raunchy, Friday After Next surely stands apart from other holiday-themed movies for its gleeful low-down humor and a raft of uninhibited characters involved in one outrageous predicament after another.
  2. The movie's 85 minutes speed merrily along on a steady stream of outrageous antics, entertaining performances from seasoned pros (like John Witherspoon, as Craig's dyspeptic dad), and unforgettable introductions to new talent.
  3. The jokes are sophomoric, stereotypes are sprinkled everywhere and the acting ranges from bad to bodacious.
  4. 50
    I guess there's an audience for it, and Ice Cube has paid dues in better and more positive movies ("Barbershop" among them). But surely laughs can be found in something other than this worked-over material.
  5. Director Marcus Raboy hasn't made a bad movie, exactly -- just one that seems to have forgotten its own jokes, much as those who watch it will forget everything about it a week later, stoned or not.
  6. 10
    Marginally better than its predecessor, but only because "Next Friday" lowered standards so far that only a homemade cockfighting video would have failed to surpass it.
