DETAILED STORYLINE

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy - Young urban audiences are most likely to enjoy this inferior sequel to the 1995 surprise hit. Sensitive older viewers will likely be offended by the sex and drug humor. Those references and the nonstop profanity make the film inappropriate for youngsters.

Critic's Review Heading
Below Average
Released in 1995, the low-budget comedy Friday was obviously meant to be a big showcase for its co-writer/star/executive producer, Ice Cube. However, it was Cube's co-star, a then-unknown stand-up comedian by the name of Chris Tucker, who was ultimately credited for the film's modest but solid box office returns and even greater popularity in video stores (where it is still a rental and sales hit). With such a profitable investment-to-return ratio, a follow-up is inevitable, so now we get to see what happens Next Friday. But with Tucker having long graduated into bigger-budget starring roles, one wishes that Cube and New Line Cinema had left well enough alone.

OPINION GRAPH


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
The bully is back as Debo (Tommy "Tiny" Lister, Jr.), who's spent two years behind bars, is released from prison and is bent on revenge. Fearing for his son's safety, Craig's father (John Witherspoon) sends his son to live with Uncle Elroy (Don "DC" Curry) and cousin Day-Day. The two have parlayed their lottery winnings into a home in the suburbs of Rancho Cucamonga. However, Craig soon learns that trouble can find you no matter where you live. Once again, forces beyond his control will test his survival skills and his commitment to family and Craig, with comic relief from Day-Day, will rise to the challenge.
