  1. It takes about 20 minutes to catch on that Friday is without narrative drive - and about as long to figure out that the film offers nothing better in place of it.

    Friday is a film that assures us that even in the ghetto of Los Angeles, there are lessons to be learned. This is not only a comedy, but a beautiful hybrid of funny and in-all-seriousness that is genuine. Ice Cube and Chris Tucker make this a joyride from start to finish. Full Review »

    I believe that this is a highly underrated film, most likely because because of the constant swearing and drug use, but even with these vices, the Friday is a fun, quality film that actually contains some important messages, such as the consequences of gun use. A great film for high-school kids to watch with friends. Full Review »

    Maybe you like Ice Cube and maybe you don't like Chris Tucker because of how annoying he can get in some of his movies, but with 'Friday', it's hard to not like either of them, at least I thought they were both hilarious. This is no brilliant comedy by any means, but it's funny and entertaining enough to stand above most stoner comedies that exist. Full Review »
