Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"'Twas the night before Christmas and all through the 'hood, Friday fans were wishing the new sequel was good."
‑ Scott Von Doviak, Fort Worth Star-Telegram/
"You'd have to be applying pretty loose critical standards to describe Friday After Next ... as a good movie, but in the coming weeks it may certainly prove a useful one."
‑ Geoff Pevere, Toronto Star
"Something to offend everyone."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"Perhaps the main problem with Friday After Next is that everything is too manic to be memorable."
‑ Nick Rogers, State Journal-Register (Springfield, IL)
"This isn't a "Friday" worth waiting for."
‑ Linda Cook, Quad City Times (Davenport, IA)
"This is a terrible movie, one of the worst comedies of the year."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"Friday movies are a lot like an African-American version of Seinfeld; they're really about nothing. And if you can appreciate the cultural dislocation of their urban California milieu, same as Seinfeld, they can be funny as hell."
‑ Ted Fry, Seattle Times
"It's become abundantly clear that series star/writer/producer Ice Cube hasn't a clue as to why the first Friday became such a beloved cult classic in the first place."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"A South Central LA comedy with more of the flavor of Halloween, the film is more about ghetto strife that's just too agitated to, well, pause for Claus."
‑ Prairie Miller, Long Island Press
"There must be an audience that enjoys the Friday series, but I wouldn't be interested in knowing any of them personally."
‑ Dustin Putman,
"Frenetic but not really funny."
‑ Mike Clark, USA Today
"The jokes are sophomoric, stereotypes are sprinkled everywhere and the acting ranges from bad to bodacious."
‑ Jonathan Curiel, San Francisco Chronicle
"...more cartoonish than anything else..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Never having seen the first two films in the series, I can't compare Friday After Next to them, but nothing would change the fact that what we have here is a load of clams left in the broiling sun for a good three days."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"Neither as good as its direct ancestor nor as clever as the original Friday, this is, to put it bluntly, all seeds and stems."
‑ Marc Savlov, Austin Chronicle
