"Yet another unnecessary and atrocious sequel."
1 stars

'Next Friday' is the sequel to the incredibly successful (at least on video) 'Friday', made about five years ago and launching the careers of actor Chris Tucker and director F. Gary Gray ('The Negotiator').

'Next Friday' is again written and starring Ice Cube, the rapper-turned-actor most recently seen in 'Three Kings'. To bring you up to speed, last 'Friday', among other things, Craig (Ice Cube) kicked the ass of the neighborhood bully, Debo. Now Debo's broken out of jail and wants revenge.

So Craig is shipped to the safety of the suburbs to stay with his lottery-winning Uncle Elroy and Beemer-driving cousin Day-Day (Mike Epps). There he learns that if he thought things were bad in the 'hood, life in the L.A. suburbs is a whole lot worse, what with the drug dealing neighbours, killer canines and the new alternative lifestyle Uncle Elroy's persuing with his new girlfriend 'Sugar'. And when he discovers that their fancy new house is just $3000 in owed property taxes away from being repossessed, well, he just has to help out.

If you've seen the television commercials, you'll know that 'Next Friday' is aimed squarely at the teen market- and it's a perfect bullseye. If you're over 16 you may have trouble sitting through it, as reel after reel of sophmoric comedy gushes out into the cinema. You've seen it all before, probably in the 80's: Toilet humor? Yep. Humorous ethnic stereotypes? Uh huh. Drug affected dog? You bet.

'Next Friday' has a hell of a soundtrack though, as half the cast are veteran hip hop artists. Director Steve Carr debuts from a music video background, and as for Ice Cube, I'd prefer to wait for a sequel to 'Three Kings'.
