Next Friday is a comedy movie from 2000 written by Ice Cube and DJ Pooh, and directed by Steve Carr. It is the sequel to the successful movie Friday that premiered three years earlier. The plot in Next Friday takes place in the suburbs of Los Angeles, a week after the original movie events. Craig Jones (Ice Cube) is back, but this time he has to move from South Central to a safer place in the San Fernando Valley after he was attacked by a local gang. He stays at his Uncle Elroy's (Don "DC" Curry) house, a lottery winner who owes money to a loan shark named Pinky (Clifton Powell). To pay the debt, Craig has to help his uncle on his day job as a dogcatcher, but he spends most of his time hanging out with his cousin Day-Day (Mike Epps), who is also unemployed and has money problems of his own.

The two cousins run into several eccentric characters throughout the movie, including a religious woman named Sister Sarah (Kym Whitley), her ex-con son, Roach (Justin Pierce), and a former drug dealer named Uncle Willie (Mike Epps), who has a peculiar way of helping them solve their current problems.

The film's comedy is built around the characters' interactions and the shenanigans they find themselves in as they try to get out of trouble. Most of the humor is light-hearted and silly, with a few crude jokes and some slapstick moments. The performances of Ice Cube and Mike Epps are compelling as they both deliver witty dialogues with great chemistry.

The movie's soundtrack is also noteworthy, featuring hip-hop tracks from Ice Cube, Westside Connection, Nate Dogg, and Dr. Dre, among others.

Overall, Next Friday is a hilarious sequel that builds upon the foundation of the original movie. It sets a different tone with the relocation from the dangerous environment of South Central to the suburbs, but it still delivers enough laughs and enjoyable moments to make it a must-watch for fans of comedy movies.

In conclusion, Next Friday is a feel-good comedy movie that will make you laugh out loud. The film's engaging characters and silly humor create an entertaining experience that is sure to appeal to viewers of all ages.

Next Friday is a 2000 comedy with a runtime of 1 hour and 38 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 6.1 and a MetaScore of 41.
