    The trouble with movies like those in the "Friday" series is that their success can lead to a need to inflate their importance, inviting pretentious descriptions like "folkloric" when "Friday" is much closer to chitlin circuit comedy.

    If you can’t laugh at stuff like this, there are still a few days left in the theatrical run of “Santa Clause 2”. I hear the reindeer are horny as hell.

    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.

    The third -- and thinnest and weakest and least funny -- installment in Ice Cube's popular Friday series.

    Anyone who pays to see it will certainly feel as if he has been clipped.
  6. The movie is altogether too infatuated with its ramshackle spirit. Most of the gags take after the characters -- they just sit there.

    If "Next Friday" approximated smoking the same old shit, FAN is a manically generous Christmas vaudeville.

    Ultimately, the lazy, cynical underpinnings of Friday After Next are as visible as the film's soundtrack is obnoxious.
  9. The jokes are sophomoric, stereotypes are sprinkled everywhere and the acting ranges from bad to bodacious.
  10. 40
    It's familiar, undemanding and not as bad as it could have been, but you can't help thinking that somewhere else, there's a real party going on.
