First Sunday is a 2008 comedy film directed by David E. Talbert and starring Ice Cube, Katt Williams, and Tracy Morgan. The movie revolves around two friends, Durell (Ice Cube) and LeeJohn (Tracy Morgan), who are desperate to get their hands on some quick cash to pay off a debt. In a fit of desperation, they decide to rob a church. However, things quickly go awry when they find themselves trapped inside the church along with the pastor and several other hostages.

Durell and LeeJohn are two lifelong friends who have found themselves in a bit of trouble. Durell's ex-girlfriend is threatening to move away with their son if he doesn't come up with $17,000 in back child support. Meanwhile, LeeJohn owes a large debt to a drug dealer who is threatening to harm him if he doesn't pay up. In an attempt to solve their problems, they decide to rob a church. They figure that since the church is only open on Sundays, it should be an easy target.

Things do not go according to plan. When they break into the church, they are surprised to find that there is already someone there. It turns out that the pastor, played by Chi McBride, and a couple of other people are inside. Durell and LeeJohn are forced to take them all hostage. This sets off a chain of events that leads to a hilarious and heartwarming adventure.

The hostages include a church regular named Sister Doris, played by Loretta Devine, and her granddaughter Tianna, played by Malinda Williams. They are joined by a parolee named Ricky, played by Katt Williams, who was doing some community service when he stumbled upon the scene. Ricky is a wild card who adds a lot of humor to the movie. He and LeeJohn quickly become fast friends.

What follows is a series of comedic events that involve everything from a choir performance to a game of basketball. As the hostages get to know their captors, they begin to see that they are not as bad as they first thought. In fact, they begin to sympathize with Durell and LeeJohn's plight. The hostages even come up with a plan to help them get the money they need.

The movie is filled with hilarious moments, especially from the performances of Ice Cube and Tracy Morgan. They have great chemistry together, and their banter is some of the funniest parts of the film. However, the movie also has a heartwarming message about forgiveness and redemption. Each character has their own story of struggle and hardship, and they all come together in the end to support each other.

Overall, First Sunday is a fun and entertaining movie that combines humor with heart. The performances of Ice Cube, Tracy Morgan, and Katt Williams are top-notch, and the supporting cast is equally strong. The movie is a great example of a comedy that can make you laugh while also leaving you with a positive message. It is a great choice for anyone looking for a funny and heartwarming movie.

First Sunday is a 2008 comedy with a runtime of 1 hour and 36 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 4.6 and a MetaScore of 41.
