    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.

    Friday is ghetto, stereotypical and kinda funny. Even though it is extremely mediocre, Ice Cube gives one the best performances in his career here. Fans of the Cube will love this film, just for his dead-pan humor. Others will probably hate it for Chris Tucker's annoying tendencies.

    Didn't see much "ghetto" in this film, other than some of the stereotypes portrayed in the film. Outside of that, I always liked this film. Seemed a bit childish as times, but that added to the simple humor of this film. Tucker stole this film in his role while Ice Cube proved his writing and/or rapping is better than his acting.

    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.

    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.

    Who knew one weekend could be so ghetto and hilarious? Though it is pretty ridiculous that Ice Cube would be in a good movie besides Three Kings, this movie proved that sometimes you can't judge a book by its cover.

    A refreshingly lighthearted look at day-to-day life in the inner city, Friday does suffer from a few problems in the scripting and directing departments, but entertains nonetheless, thanks mainly to the easygoing style of its talented cast.
  2. 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 may touch its young target audience. For everyone else, it is more intriguing as a social problem than a movie.
