PG-13
First Sunday is a 2008 Sony Pictures comedy. In this movie, Ice Cube (Boyz n the Hood) and Tracy Morgan (30 Rock) play two semi losers, who keep getting in trouble with the law. Cube's ex wife is planning to move his son out of state because she can't afford the house payments. She owes thousands. Cube comes up with a brilliant idea to rip of a church to pay her bills to keep his son close by. He gets help with his rather dysfunctional partner, Morgan. They hold some of the church members hostage only to find out someone has already stolen money from the church. They then try to find out who has the money while trying not to feel so guilty talking to his son. The two come to realize the ripping of a church is not such a good idea and it takes a lot of friends to get off on hostage charges. Is the money found, does Cube get to keep his son nearby? Featuring comedian Katt Williams.moreless

Metacritic Score

    The New York Times A.O. Scott

    First Sunday sometimes feels more like a script read-through than like an actual movie, but its warmth is likely to carry you through the stretches of cliché and tedium.

    Entertainment Weekly

    If Tyler Perry ever wanted to turn "Dog Day Afternoon" into a treacly after-school special, it would probably end up looking a lot like this.

    Variety Brian Lowry

    A near-claustrophobic comedy that manages to be both predictable and preachy. Solid actors in supporting roles offer minor redemption.
