Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy - If you liked the last "Friday" movie this one is more of the same. It's got some beautiful women and many sex and drug jokes. The humor is often very silly and dark. It's the type some will find funny and others won't.

The above rating is an average of the critic reviews below.

(Close new window when finished with Full Reviews)

Entertainment Weekly   Full Review
Average "It's Christmas in the hood, and there are two or three funny ornaments on the tree, but not nearly enough of them to free the third entry in the 'Friday' series from that drab, been-there-smoked-that feeling known as obligatory sequelitis.''

Roger Ebert  Full Review
Average "The third picture has reduced the Friday series to loud, broad vulgarity, including Mr. Jones' obligatory battle with world-class flatulence. There's an audience for it, but it could have been funnier and more innocent. It's rated R, but when it hits the video stores you somehow know it will be viewed at home as a family movie, and that's kind of sad.''

TV Guide Online  Full Review
Below Average "...But basically the movie is like a family get-together — the old gang is there (even Day-Day's dog), blustering and cracking wise the way they always do. 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.''

Newsday  Full Review
Average "...you just might be able to get through this leisurely, waxy potpourri of messy sight gags, coarse sex jokes and all-pro bad behavior. It's a little less aimless and relatively smarter than "Next Friday," but that's not saying a whole lot. And it still falls way short of "Friday" (1995), the comedy whose success made this franchise filler inevitable."

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

These are some very good opinions. It's easy to see that "Friday After Next" was enjoyed most by males, but females weren't too far behind. With most of the opinions coming in "Very Good" and higher and almost no low opinions, this is a movie I can certainly recommend to those who enjoy this type of humor.

Cinema Review Prediction: (before moviegoer opinions are collected)
This one's easy, I predict that if you liked the other "Friday" movies you'll likely enjoy this one. Most of the audience found it to be very funny. However, some of the attempts at humor were enjoyed more by some than others. So how much you enjoy this movie will really depend on how much you enjoy this type of humor.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Craig (Ice Cube) and Day-Day (Mike Epps) are back in the old neighborhood and ready for Christmas. Although they've left behind the security of living with their parents, the rundown Shady Palms apartment they now share is filled with all the accoutrements and spirit of the holiday season. It's a time for giving … until Craig wakes up in the middle of the night to discover a ghetto Santa Claus stealing their presents and anything else he can stuff into his sack, including the rent money jammed in their stereo speakers.

Faced with the harsh reality of a Christmas without presents and the unwanted advances of their landlady's recently paroled son if the rent is not paid by midnight on Christmas Eve, Craig and Day-Day are forced to score some quick cash at the local strip mall where their fathers, Mr. Jones (John Witherspoon) and Uncle Elroy (Don "D.C.” Curry), have opened Bros. Bar-B-Q restaurant and landed them jobs as unarmed security guards.

While Craig handles the chaos of the Christmas Eve shopping crush at stores like Pimp N' Ho's clothing store -- particularly favoring sales associate Donna (K.D. Aubert) -- and Holy Moly's Donut Shop, Day-Day's renegade rent-a-cop tactics put the pair's jobs and lives in jeopardy. As the clock ticks down on another unforgettable Friday, Craig and Day-Day learn some comic lessons about the true meaning of the holiday season.
