[[caption-width-right:320:Smokey (Chris Tucker) and Craig (IceCube)]]

-->''"And you know this, MAAAAAAAAN!!"''

A urban comedy film created by Ice Cube in 1995. Directed by Felix Gary Gray, his first film. ''Friday'' tells the story of Craig Jones (Cube himself) a UPS worker that, as the film opens, ends up getting fired ''on his day off'' and basically hangs around the porch of his house for pretty much the whole day. His friend Smokey (Chris Tucker in an early role) joins him as they observe the other oddball characters in their neighborhood. Things take a drastic turn, though, when Smokey is revealed to owe money to a drug dealer named Big Worm (Faizon Love) who gives Smokey until nightfall to pay him for the weed he was supposed to sell (Smokey ended up smoking it instead). Craig ends up pulled into the mess, and the two frantically try to think of a way to earn the money before the deadline.

A moderate success when it was released, ''Friday'' earned $28,215,918 in the international market. Most of it came from the United States market, where it was the 62nd most successful film of its year.

The film features a lot of well-known African-American actors who were relatively minor back then, and [[StarMakingRole promoted Chris Tucker to star status]]. By the time Cube decided to make a sequel six years later, Tucker declined to reprise his role; newfound religious beliefs made him want to shy away from playing a drug addict. Thus he wasn't present in the next two films. Many fans argue that the sequels suffered as a result.

''Next Friday'', released in 2000, picks up a few days after the first. Deebo (Tommy 'Tiny' Lister), the resident bully who Craig defeated in the first movie, escapes from jail looking for vengeance. Craig's father (John Whitterspoon) decides to hide Craig at his brother Elroy's (Don 'D.C.' Curry) house in suburban Rancho Cucamonga, California. He meets his cousin Day-Day (Mike Epps) and hilarity ensues as they bum around the neighborhood unaware that Deebo is tracking Craig down. Slightly on par with the first though nowhere near as good.

''Friday After Next'', the third and so far final film released in 2002, is set at Christmas time rather then summer. Craig and Day-Day are now living together as roommates in a ramshackle apartment. The night before Christmas Eve, they're robbed by a burglar posing as Santa who makes off with their presents as well as their rent money. Not surprisingly the next day, the landlady breathes down their necks about it and threatens to send her son Damon (Terry Crews), who just got out of prison, on them if they don't pay up. Thus the two spend the film working as strip mall security guards, once again getting into hijinks while trying to find the Santa who robbed them. Viewed as vastly inferior among the three films, though it does have its moments and its fans.

The series also gain a short-lived animated adaption on {{MTV}} 2. As you can guess, no one cared.

!!The ''Friday'' franchise provides the following tropes:

* AnAesop: Craig's father gives one when he finds Craig with a gun in the first movie.
--> '''Mr. Jones''': (''shows Craig his fist'') You win some, you lose some. But you live...you live to fight another day!
* TheAllegedCar: Smokey's.
* AnimatedAdaptation: Bleh.
* AnimatedCreditsOpening: ''Friday After Next''
* BabyGotBack: Mrs. Parker.
* BadHumorTruck: First film, Big Worm disguises an ice cream truck to make his payment rounds.
* BadSanta: One of the antagonists in the third movie.
* CatchPhrase: "YOU GOT KNOCKED THA FUCK OUT!" is said at the end of every film whenever the antagonist is beaten.
** "DAMN!" Is said practically every five seconds in the first movie. It got so bad, a YouTube video was made [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xwohf_5ofvc showing nearly time it's said]]. Some people even call it "'Damn!' TheMovie".
* BreakingTheFourthWall: Smokey at the end of the first movie.
* ClingyJealousGirl: Craig's then-girlfriend, Joi from the first movie.
* DoesntLikeGuns: As stated in the [[AnAesop Aesop]]. Mr. Jones prefers [[GoodOldFisticuffs fists]] to firepower since they, at the least, preserve life.
* DrugsAreBad: While it's played as comedy, the first movie does show what the effect of taking drugs can do to you.
* GroinAttack: A very painful version in the the third film when Money Mike manages to temporarily stop a potential rape by Damon (the aforementioned son from prison) [[spoiler:by using pliers to squeeze his testicles]]. Yes, it's as painful as it sounds.
* HeyItsThatGuy / [[HeyItsThatVoice Voice]]: A few well-known rappers and black actors.
** Craig's love interest in the first movie, Debbie, was [[TheFreshPrinceofBelAir Lisa in ''Fresh Prince'']].
** Willie and Betty (Craig's parents) many will recognize as John 'Pops' Williams and Dee Baxter (respectively) from ''TheWayansBros''.
** Also, John Witherspoon voices Granddad and Regina King (Dana, Craig's sister) plays both Huey and Riley in ''TheBoondocks'' (which references their roles in the movie numerous times).
** Damon, from the third movie, would later go on to play Chris's father in ''EverybodyHatesChris''.
** Anybody else wonder when Deebo found his way to [[TheDarkKnightSaga Gotham City]]?
*** Or [[TheFifthElement how he became President of the Galaxy in a world where Smokey is an intergalagtic radio host/sex symbol?]]
** Before being part of [[{{ptitle2tyh4gpfa5lj}} Ocean's Eleven]], Bernie Mac was a pastor having an affair with one of Craig's neighbors.
* HypocriticalHumor: In first film, Joi calls up Craig and questions him on whether he's cheating on her or not. On her bed, you can clearly see another guy (shirtless, I might add) sleeping next to her.
* {{Jerkass}}: Pretty much every character in every film in the series aside from Craig, but Deebo takes the title for actually demanding money from Red, even though he has plenty of his own. Later, calling Deebo that [[CompleteMonster would be an understatement.]]
* MadeOfIron: Damn, the beating Deebo and Craig take at the end of the first film...
* MaleGaze: Debbie and Mrs. Parker's introduction scenes run completely on this.
* MeanBoss: Pinky in the second movie.
* MushroomSamba: In the first movie, Smokey accidentally consumes a large amount of angel dust. He runs down the street in his underwear and ends up spending the night in Deebo's chicken coop. It also makes him twitch involuntarily.
* MyNameIsNotDurwood
-->'''Smokey''': What's up Big Perm--I mean, Big Worm?
* NonActionGuy: Red spends the first movie cringing at the mere thought of Deebo. [[spoiler: Then he gets in [[KickThemWhileTheyAreDown a free hit]] after Craig knocks Deebo senseless.]]
* NoodleIncident: The audience is only given a vague explanation with regards to Craig's firing. It apparently involved a security camera and some boxes.
* OnlySaneMan: Craig
* PutOnABus: A good majority of characters from the first film (though justified as each movie takes place in a different neighborhood), but most specifically Smokey, who Craig [[HandWave hand-waves]] in the second movie as "Gone to Rehab."
* ScaryBlackMan: Deebo, full stop.
** Damon from the third film.
* ScreamsLikeALittleGirl: Smokey, Pinky, Money Mike
* TheStoner: Smokey
* StonersAreFunny: Ezal steals almost every scene he's in.
* StraightMan: Craig almost always finds himself in this role.
* TemptingFate: Smokey does this as Craig and he are headed for his house during the evening. He promptly calls out that no one gonna mess with him...then shit happens.
-->'''Smokey''': Ain't nobody gonna mess with the Smoke Dog! *woofs, then spots a van down the street* Hey, who's that?
-->*the van cuts its headlights off and speeds down the street as Craig and Smokey run off and a shootout occurs*
* ThemeTuneRap: ''Friday'', performed by Ice Cube himself.
* [[{{Ptitle7pn5uvdh}} This Is Something He's Got To Do Himself]]: When Craig and Deebo fight at the end of the first movie, Craig's father repeatedly tells everyone to give him room and 'let him be a man'.
* TokenWhite: Roach
* WouldHitAGirl: Deebo in the first film ''twice'' (though the first is off screen), which prompts the climax between him and Craig.
