It is Friday and Craig Jones (Ice Cube) is unemployed, having been fired yesterday. This has lead to trouble with Smokey's (Chris Tucker's) supplier, Big Worm (Faizon Love), who now wants his money, or his product back, or Smokey is a dead man. Then there's Deebo (Tommy "Tiny" Lister, Jr.), the local bully, plus Craig's jealous, psychotic girlfriend, Joi (Paula Jai Parker), and Debbie (Nia Long), the neighbor Craig has a crush on. A lot can happen while lounging around your house on a Friday. (Source: www.imdb.com)

This is one of those movies I watched a LOT 'back in the day' as one might say. It's really a movie, despite being rated R, for 13 year olds, black or white, and seeing it at 13 made as big an impression as seeing Clerks or Pulp Fiction or whatever. At the time I thought it was that good on the level. But some things do last better than others, and the seams in Friday show much more over time. Some bits don't work - the crackhead (?) hustler is hit or miss, mostly great in the "HEY, SMOKY BACk HERE TAKING A S***!" bit - though Tony Lister, DEEBO of course in capital letters, is still amazing. And I found myself laughing often through the film, in part due to things still working, like anything with Bernie Mac (and Tony Cox!), and sometimes just nostalgia. It surprised me just how much I remembered in terms of dialog - if only I remembered everything from school like this, I'd be probably a smarter man today... oh well. (Source: www.imdb.com)

Recently celebrating its 25th anniversary, Friday is the little stoner comedy that could. Though it received mixed reviews and didn't gross more than $30 million, the New Line Cinema movie jumpstarted Chris Tucker's film career, established F. Gary Gray as a big-time Hollywood director, and proved that actor-writer Ice Cube was a bright comedic actor in addition to a chart-topping rap musician. It's also filled with notable supporting talents, including Regina King, Nia Long, and the late Bernie Mac, John Witherspoon, and Tommy "Tiny" Lister Jr. Let's take a look at what the Friday cast is doing right now.

Bernie Mac had a small but memorable role in "Friday" as the pot-smoking Pastor Clever. Mac, whose real name was Bernard Jeffrey McCollough, rose to prominence as a stand-up comedian before launching a successful acting career. Starting out much younger than most, Mac considered his first standup routine to have been performed for his church congregation at the age of eight. After making his way up the ranks of the Chicago comedy scene in the 7'0s, Mac made his first feature-film appearance in a blink-and-you'll-miss-it role as a doorman in the 1992 Damon Wayans vehicle "Mo' Money."
