Consensus: Next Friday lacks the fun of the original Friday. The movie is messy and plotless and relies on unfunny vulgar gags.

Ernest Hardy

Next Friday is a truly awful film.

Tom Keogh

Next Friday will eventually be remembered as a disposable farce, but one that leaves a happy memory.

Common Sense Media

Probably the weakest out of the trilogy, but still not that bad. The Mexican guy is super-annoying and very stereotypical, but a break from the big-as-fuck… More

A half wit follow up to a semi-descent movie. When Chris Tucker won't sign up for a sequel, it's usually a bad sign. Mike Epps was a horrible addition… More

Hilarious. I think it was just as good as the first one.
