Movie of the Day – Friday

Yep.  It’s Friday.  I do have a job and I got shit to do.  Other than that, there isn’t a lot to go off of on this movie.  A strong cast, funny dialogue, all presented in the time span of one and the best of the Friday series.  Also Bernie Mac and Chris Tucker are at their best in this movie.  Funny roles and some stellar one-liners.  This is also the only likeable role I have seen Ice Cube in a long time and sort of marked his downward spiral into the Are We There Yet territory.

Sit back and relax with Friday, which is on Netflix instant stream.  I’m out!

Craig (Ice Cube) manages to get fired on his day off (though he claims it’s through no fault of his own) and spends the day hanging out with his buddy Smokey (Chris Tucker) and trying to avoid his father (John Witherspoon), who wants him to find another job immediately. Smokey (whose name might have something to do with his tremendous fondness for marijuana) has even more serious problems; he was given $200 worth of weed to sell by Big Worm (Faizon Love), but he ended up smoking it instead, and if he can’t come up with the money by the end of the day, he’ll be in a world of hurt (and will put Craig in the same place just for being his friend). And Deebo (Tom “Tiny” Lister, Jr.), a gargantuan bully who roams the neighborhood on his bicycle, has it in for Craig, while Craig tries his best just to stay out of his way. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
