    Anyone who pays to see it will certainly feel as if he has been clipped.

    Entertainment Weekly Owen Gleiberman

    The movie is altogether too infatuated with its ramshackle spirit. Most of the gags take after the characters -- they just sit there.

    Chicago Sun-Times Roger Ebert

    I guess there's an audience for it, and Ice Cube has paid dues in better and more positive movies ("Barbershop" among them). But surely laughs can be found in something other than this worked-over material.

    Ultimately, the lazy, cynical underpinnings of Friday After Next are as visible as the film's soundtrack is obnoxious.

not for kids

Something to offend everyone.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this movie has extremely strong language, including the "N" word. If the movie had been made by Caucasians, it would have been justifiably excoriated for its offensive racial stereotypes. It is racist, sexist, homophobic, and extremely vulgar. In the mall, there is a clothing store called "Pimp's and Ho's." Everyone loves smoking pot, even the police. Everyone lies, cheats, and steals. A character has a threesome. There are nasty jokes about homosexual rape.

  • Families can talk about how the members of the family in this movie do and don't communicate and take care of each other.
