Movie

  • AFI's 100 Years... 100 Movie Quotes: Nomination: "DAMN!" Collectively exclaimed by Craig and Smokey after Red takes his sunglasses off to reveal his swollen black eye.
  • Author Existence Failure: It has been made clear that Ice Cube wants no part in developing one last “Friday” film, now that John Witherspoon (who played Craig’s dad) sadly passed away in 2019.
  • The Cast Showoff: Terry Crews in "Friday After Next" pulls off his trademark Pec Flex when Damon shows up to intimidate Craig and Day-Day.

  • Disabled Character, Disabled Actor: Deebo has one lazy eye, like his actor, Tiny Lister note . In Next Friday, Tyrone threatens to "knock [his] eye straight" after Deebo bullies him.
  • Sequel Gap: The first film came out in 1995 while Next Friday released five years later in 2000. ...After Next only had to wait a year for it's release.
  • Technology Marches On: This really helps set the first movie as taking place in the 90's. Not only are there wall-hung phones (with cords!) but Craig's mother states that she "knows it's Joi calling, cause I 'star-sixty-nined' her and she hung up again." Ask any Gen Z-er what a *69 is and you will probably get an answer involving pornography. For those not alive in the 90's, pressing *69 on a phone caused your phone to redial whoever just called.
