Storyline

It is Friday and Craig Jones (Ice Cube) is unemployed, having been fired yesterday. This has lead to trouble with Smokey's (Chris Tucker's) supplier, Big Worm (Faizon Love), who now wants his money, or his product back, or Smokey is a dead man. Then there's Deebo (Tommy "Tiny" Lister, Jr.), the local bully, plus Craig's jealous, psychotic girlfriend, Joi (Paula Jai Parker), and Debbie (Nia Long), the neighbor Craig has a crush on. A lot can happen while lounging around your house on a Friday. Written by grantss

A movie everyone should give it try.
22 December 2018 | by tonysobonSee all my reviews

I am only writing this because 7.3 rating is to low for this movie and just to say that you do not have to be black or live in the "hood" to like it. Not only is it very funny movie but it has a good message with a very good cast and still holds up 23 years after it came out.
