It is Friday and Craig Jones (Ice Cube) is unemployed, having, yesterday, been fired. . This has lead to trouble with Smokey's supplier, Big Worm, who now wants his money, or his product back, or Smokey is a dead man. Then there's Deebo, the local bully, plus Craig's jealous, psychotic girlfriend, Joi, and Debbie, the neighbour Craig has a crush on. A lot can happen while lounging around your house on a Friday.Written by
When Mr. Parker finds the preacher with his wife, the preacher runs up to his car, takes off his hat, throws it into the car, and then jumps into the car to drive away. The camera angle changes to a rear view and you now see the preacher driving away with his hat on. See more »
On the USA Network airings, extra and alternate footage has been inserted to bring up the film's running time and to replace some of the more harsh language. Among other things, this version contains:
a scene where we are introduced to Felicia, where she is asking Craig to borrow something;
the "you got knocked the fuck out" scenes have been replaced with alternately shot footage of Smokey, most notably the last scene where he says "You got knocked the hell out!... Payback's a mother, ain't it? Peace!"
the ending scene is an alternate take, where the "I was just bullshittin'" line is replaced by "I was just playin'!".
I am only writing this because 7.3 rating is to low for this movie and just to say that you do not have to be black or live in the "hood" to like it. Not only is it very funny movie but it has a good message with a very good cast and still holds up 23 years after it came out.
