instant classic. A well written and interesting piece of black on black comedy. The story is interesting and the acting true to form, everyone does a fantastic part in their roles. Ice Cube has struck comic gold with this series of films.

"this movie had what the sequels missed out on, smokey. he pretty much made the first movie. such memorable lines in this movie at such quantities, it's hard not to like it. "how do you get fired on your day off?" "what you stealin boxes for, you tryin to build a clubhouse?" i have seen this movie at least 100 times and still never grow tired of it. whenever i can't think of anything else to watch, friday creeps up and inserts itself into the dvd player. great great movie.

of course deebo was a great villian. there is allways that big @ss thug that wants to prove that noone can step up to him. what a better person to play that role then tom 'tiny' lister jr. maybe that guy from the green mile. chris tucker was absolutely amazing as a pothead. i don't think anyone could have pulled that role off better then him. ice cube did a great job as craig and i don't know who played as mrs. parker, but she did a good job too. then you have the corrupt preacher played by bernie mac. hillarious movie from beginning to end especially when they did the flashback scenes with smokey taking a hit of angel dust and finding himself in deebos chicken coop.

this movie had one of the best soundtracks ever put together. everything from ice cube and cypress hill to rick james and 2 live crew. best placement in the movie for the soundtrack had to be when craigs girlfriend got out of the car all pissed off and hoochie mamma was playing in the background. the best hood classic ever."
Chris Tucker stole the show

"This is THE funniest comedy I have ever seen. I agree with another reviewer: I can watch this movie a million times and never tire of it. It gets funnier and funnier each time.Tucker stole the show as Smokey, who sells pot but who also smokes it and it's that love that causes him trouble in the middle of the film. But it's his lines and his mannerisms as Smokey that make him hilarious.One of my favorite parts is where Rita pulls up to meet Smokey for a blind date. Rita, who said she looked like Janet Jackson but weighed a good 250 pounds says lustfully, "Ooo, what's up?" The expression on Tucker's face made me cry, I was laughing so hard: It immediately dropped as he gets an eyeful of her and says, "Not a damn thing!"The movie is chock full of goodies. The delivery of the script is what makes this movie and everyone was cast perfectly for their parts.Sequels were unnecessary because this stands out by itself."
Good Fun.

"Even if it's not necessarily the clean kind. I must say that I was slightly skeptical about how much I'd enjoy this movie but it turned out to be far better than expected. It is a mix of humor and drama wherein the humor outweighs everything else. Friday is very unique as the characters stand above the generic ones Hollywood usually offers. Ice Cube is great and plays a straight man to Chris Tucker's Smokey. The best parts of the film are when Tucker speaks. He has hilarious line after another. The one thing I had to disagree with, as far as the descriptions of this movie go, is that it is devoid of any moral element. This isn't a typical stoner celebration of weed because only after Ice Cube smokes the smoke does everything really fall apart for him. He nearly ruins his chance with a girl he really likes and then...well, I won't give any of the plot away. Yet, his dad's insistence that there is never a reason to use a gun turns out to be valuable advice, and, should any kids who see this film reflect on it, hopefully they'll reconsider "pulling out the nine" should they be stared down by their own Deebo's. Who knows? Even if it affected only one person it'd be worth it. A pleasant surprise overall."
