What It’s About: Taking place entirely on a Friday, Craig (Ice Cube, Are We There Yet?) gets fired from his job on his day off, makes a play for a girl from around the way (Nia Long, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air), tries to avoid his father (John Witherspoon, I’m Gonna Git You Sucka), and helps his friend Smokey (Chris Tucker, The Fifth Element) come up with $200 to pay a local drug dealer (Faizon Love, Couples Retreat), all while dealing with crazy antics in the ‘hood.
Why Watch it Today?: O’Shea Jackson, aka Ice Cube, celebrates his 43rd birthday today.
