| You got knocked the F*** out!
This movie is hilarious! As far as comedies go about the hood, this one is hands down the best. Chris Tucker and Ice Cube really mix up nicely in this one. This is a feel good movie and doesn't glorify the gritty hard reality violence of the inner city at all, but rather focuses on strugglin to make it with good humor and staying positive. Sure they smoke weed all up and down side to side through this movie, but you have to remember that brings a certain audience and humor to it that wasn't present before. This movie is downright laugh out loud caliber. The situations this odd couple is forced into are interesting and very funny. The re-watch value for Friday is tremendous and the characters are beautifully developed. There are some true memorable moments in Friday, and even more memorable characters. This is just a fun movie from start to finish and never tries to be perfect. Thank you for keeping it light, and to the point. All we wanted was some fun and it was delivered with Friday.

Goofs

When Craig is lying in bed the clock changed to 12:00, But when he sits up to and claps off the lights the clock still says 11:59.


Alternate Versions

TV versions also include the following scenes:

  • Differant take of Craig and Smokey in Smokey's room, where the marijuana poster is shown later in the scene in place of Smokey's marijuana smoking.
  • Craig goes into his sister's room and asks for his Guess shirt, and asks her to hook him up with her friend. He then tells it's 12:30 (really it's 8:30) causing her quickly jump out of bed.
  • Two of the kids from ice cream truck scene watch Ezal run by carrying two speakers, and talk about how he tried to rob them. Stanley then comes out and sprays them with a hose to get them off his lawn.
  • Craig goes to see what his dad wants, and has to get the TV Guide for him (which is about a foot away). A continuity error also appears showing the TV Guide on the bed, then the table, then the bed, then the table, before Craig gets it for him.
  • Widescreen versions of the film cut off half of Smokey's license plate, so you never see what it actually says. On TV, it's blurred out, and VHS copies show the entire plate reading "FCK IT".
