Fun performances can't quite overcome uneven script

A very appealing cast is left with little to work with in "First Sunday," a manufactured comedy whose script fails to rise to the level of its actors. Desperate for some quick cash, Durell and LeeJohn come up with a scheme to break into a local church and carry off the fund earmarked for construction of a new building. Unfortunately, this seemingly simple robbery quickly turns into a complicated hostage situation when a dozen or so of the most prominent church members unexpectedly show up on the scene.
"First Friday" does elicit a few hearty laughs, due, in large part, to its game cast and the occasional funny line scattered in and amongst the numerous clunkers. Ice Cube effectively plays straight man to Tracy Morgan`s endearingly bumbling sidekick, and they, together with the other actors, help to comprise a fine comic ensemble. The problem lies in a screenplay which often goes for the obvious joke over something truly original or clever, and which pours on the syrup to alarming proportions near the end just to ensure the movie its status as a morally upright, "feel-good" comedy.
It's a harmless enough little diversion if you have some time to kill, but the company is far more appetizing than what it is they`re dishing up."
Worst Movie of '08!!! Don't Bother!!!

"I just bought this movie yesterday with high expectations from the cast that was in it and the commercials looked very funny as well. Unfortunately I did not bother to go online and look at reviews and rather went on a hit and miss and bought it. From the first 5 minutes I knew I had wasted my money and was wasting my time watching this train wreck of a movie. Tracy Morgan and Katt Williams are some of the funniest comedians out there and Ice Cube showed off his comedic acting with the excellent Friday. The whole premise of the movie is brought on in the first 5 minutes and from there on is bad acting at its finest. I can't believe how some movies get the funding to be made, don't they read the scripts before hand? This movie is not worth watching unless your doing research on unfunny movies with funny actors."

"I knew that the movie had to be great cause Ice Cube was in it and I liked his movies. Until I saw "First Sunday" I had no idea who Katt Williams or Tracy Morgan are (Unbelievable) But now after watching it I know that Ice Cube, Katt Williams, and Tracy Morgan make a perfect trio and they should make more movies together. You will not stop laughing, promise. But this is just my opinion so watch it. "First Sunday" is worth every penny!"
