Movie Summary

F. Gary Gray

Friday follows Craig, 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 and trying to avoid his father, who wants him to find another job immediately. Smokey has even more serious of a problem; he was given $200 worth of weed to sell by Big Worm, 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.


Metacritic Score

  • 70

    Los Angeles Times

    It's the right format for this scattershot jokefest, which at times resembles a vaudeville act crossed with the kind of goofy bludgeoning antics that sometimes make it into gangsta...

  • 40

    Variety Todd McCarthy

    Rather like a cross between "Up in Smoke" and an episode of "The Jeffersons, Friday is a crudely made, sometimes funny bit of porchfront humor from the 'hood.

  • 25

    San Francisco Chronicle Mick LaSalle

    It takes about 20 minutes to catch on that Friday is without narrative drive - and about as long to figure out that the film offers nothing better in place of it.
