out of the hood

Debo escapes from county jail chained to Tyrone. Debo is looking for revenge against Craig Jones (Ice Cube). Craig's dad sends him to stay with his cousin Day-Day (Mike Epps) in Rancho Cucamonga. His unemployed uncle Elroy won the lottery allowing him to buy a house in the suburbs. Craig gets into some misadventures with his cousin's family and the Latino gangster neighbors as the family faces foreclosure.

I'm not saying that Chris Tucker is a magical elixir for any franchise but part of the original charm is the lead characters' friendship. Essentially, this sequel switches out Tucker for Epps. If that's how easy it is to drop a lead character, how much should the audience care about any of the characters. It's a mess of crude broad humor that doesn't hit enough times. Ice Cube has good charisma as lead but there isn't much more than that.

Next Lame Day

Next Friday (2000): Dir: Steve Carr / Cast: Ice Cube, Mike Epps, John Witherspoon, Tommy "Tiny" Lister, Tamala Jones: Brainless mess with absolutely no reason for existing. Sequel to Friday with Ice Cube writing and narrating the film. He was responsible for Tommy "Tiny" Lister landing in prison but after an escape, Cube is sent to live with his Uncle Elroy. Cube's cousin works at Pinky's Record Store where he hides out on his pregnant girlfriend. Next door live drug dealers with a nasty pit bull. There is a subplot involving taxes and saving the property etc. Witless and predictable with uninspiring directing by Steve Carr. Ice Cube plays the humourless lead, which works against the mood of the film. It is as if Cube arrived on the wrong set. Mike Epps plays Cube's best friend who is a complete idiot. John Witherspoon plays Cube's less than friendly father. Perhaps the worst element is an embarrassing appearance by Lister who breaks out of prison and seeks revenge on Cube. Perhaps he should seek out the producers of this film. Tamala Jones plays Epps's pregnant ex-girlfriend although being part of this film gives her something else to be angry about. The conclusion presents theft and drugs as fun as oppose to the endless trouble brought to those who dabbled in it. Nothing of value in this film that prides itself on being stupid. This film should be tossed in a campfire for a marshmallow roast. Score: 1 / 10

It's OK.

"Next Friday" has the same slacker attitude as the first movie "Friday" with a little more plot line. The big disappointment is the lack of Chris Tucker as he was a big drawcard for the first movie. Once again this movie is completely watchable although it does edge into sequel territory where the storyline feels more worked and less organic in it's development. Also the characters weren't as good and felt typical to this style of movie.

Not a bad effort as a sequel but it misses the mark. It's lucky it is connected to a cult hit or it would not have been as successful (and I use that term lightly).
