Looking to stay out of Debo's way, Craig's dad decides that it would be a good idea for Craig to hide out with his Uncle Elroy and cousin Day-Day in Rancho Cucamonga... but trouble seems to find him there also.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Phoebe Flowers

    One of the freshest, nastiest comedies to come around in quite some time.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Carrie Rickey

    A slaphappy, slapdash type of affair familiar to fans of Cheech & Chong and Pauly Shore. It's your basic object lesson in why marijuana is called dope.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    An extremely funny movie, and this is coming from someone who barely cracked a smile during ``Friday,'' the first installment of this franchise.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Tom Keogh

    Will eventually be remembered as a disposable farce, but one that leaves a happy memory. Full Review
  • Jonathan Rosenbaum

    Nothing miraculous, but it's time pretty well spent.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Wesley Morris

    The punch line isn't that funny.

    San Francisco Examiner Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    Starts high, gradually bogs down, then dies.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Maitland McDonagh

    Sporadically funny... occasionally very funny.

    TV Guide Full Review
  • Joe Leydon

    A few good laughs but few surprises in Next Friday, an amiably unfocused sequel.

    Variety Full Review
  • Paula Nechak

    After its midway mark, just lumbers until it fizzles out.

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer Full Review
  • Andy Klein

    All the new plot stuff is way old hat, as though straight from a textbook chapter called "Conflict Drives Your Narrative!" And at times the motivations are either unclear or senseless.

    Dallas Observer Full Review
  • Lawrence Van Gelder

    Most of the principal female characters are either sexually voracious, sexually promiscuous, pregnant out of wedlock or angrily bent on revenge.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Kevin Maynard

    A chronic snore. My advice: Roll a fatty and re-rent the first one.

    Mr. Showbiz Full Review
  • Monica Eng

    Almost comes as a breath of fresh air. Too bad it's so foul.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Susan Wloszczyna

    But most of the humor is about as fresh as the air left behind whenever Witherspoon uses a toilet.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Jay Carr

    The action is mostly witless and predictable. One measure of its desperation and lack of respect for its audience is the frequency with which it labors to wring humor from flatulence and excrement gags.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    It took four years to come up with this? Someone needed that long to assemble this patchy, recycled collection of gags about stinky butts, superfreaks, finger-wide blunts and racial cliches?

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • Sarah Hepola

    A story disappointingly similar to the original.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Ernest Hardy

    After enduring 30 minutes of awful slapstick, shit jokes, gags revolving around used condoms, cholo caricatures, and women who are all psychos, sluts or Latina fuck-dolls, I walked.

    L.A. Weekly Full Review
  • Gary Dauphin

    A calculated teen gross-out flick that owes more to "American Pie" than its own progenitor.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Gene Seymour

    There is plenty of nasty patter and aimless jokes about hard-core sex, soft-core drugs, dog feces and flatulence to keep you occupied while you wait, in vain, for any reason to laugh out loud.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Jonathan Foreman

    The whole movie is so ineptly written and directed that its 90 minutes seem to take twice as long.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Chris Kaltenbach

    If John Witherspoon is among the funniest men in America, as many of his fellow comics say, why is he so painful to watch here?

    Baltimore Sun Full Review
  • Sarah Raskin

    One-beat humor that is worsened by poor writing and editing.
