Friday (1995) After losing his job, Craig (Ice Cube) chills with his pothead friend Smokey (Chris Tucker) in their South Central L.A. neighborhood. Over the course of a Friday afternoon, the two get into some crazy trouble checking out hot women, offending dangerous thugs and getting high. Rapper turned actor Ice Cube co-wrote this urban comedy, which features classic hip-hop tracks from the likes of Dr. Dre, Cypress Hill, Mack 10 and more.
Craig and Smokey are two guys in Los Angeles hanging out on their porch on a Friday afternoon, smoking and drinking, looking for something to do. Encounters with neighbors and other friends over the course of the day and night, and their ensuing antics, make up the rest of the movie.
