Based in South Central, Los Angeles, this comedy with a strong hip-hop soundtrack features Craig (Ice Cube - "Boyz in the Hood," "Are We There Yet?"), who 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 - "Rush Hour" franchise, "The Fifth Element") and trying to avoid his father (John Witherspoon - "Boomerang," "Little Man"), 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 of a problem; he was given $200 worth of weed to sell by Big Worm (Faizon Love - "Elf," "Who's Your Caddy?"), 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. Also written by Ice Cube.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: This is a ruder, cruder version of the hip-hop movie House Party, and it offers a fascinating glimpse at the way street life enters pop culture.
Fresh: Friday has energy, and sass, and the nerve to suggest that the line between tragedy and comedy may be in the bloodshot eye of the beholder.
Fresh: A crudely made, sometimes funny bit of porchfront humor from the 'hood.
Rotten: Writer and director are both only 25 years old -- and provide another example of why it's best to beware of young men with movie cameras.
This movie is a classic comedy from the 90's with an all star cast. Ice Cube, Chris Tucker, John Witherspoon, Bernie Mack, Tommy 'Tiny' Lister. Those who have seen it know the endless quotable movie lines. If you haven't seen it and love recent comedies like The Hangover, Old School and Tropic Thunder you'll love Friday! Besides, it's Friday...you ain't got no job and you ain't got stuff to do!
I love this movie!
Thank you Itunes! Now how about the next two movies that follow this classic!!
What's up, Big Perm?
...I mean, Big Worm? Chris Tucker is the best in this movie! I'm so happy this is finally on iTunes.
