Friday (1995)

Friday Quote: “That’s my bike punk!” – Deebo

“Friday” wasn’t the easiest episode to record, but it’s one of our new favorites. After Big D recovered from his Strawberry Festival-induced hospitalization, the Shat Crew convened to debate whether certified stars like Chris Tucker, John Witherspoon, Regina King, “Tiny” Lister, Bernie Mac, and Michael Clarke Duncan could elevate a Zig-Zag-thin plot to a ’90s comedy classic.

In this episode, we discuss how Ice Cube and DJ Pooh succeeded in their mission to show a different side of the ‘hood, how weed helped Big D “make it a Blockbuster night,” and why it sometimes pays to party in dangerous places.

Big D implores today’s youth to “live in the moment” as we also cover the bathroom habits of POC, why Ash can’t shower alone, “the conditions” in Atlanta, and terrible fight scenes.”

Plot Summary: “Friday” It’s Friday and Craig Jones (Ice Cube) has just gotten fired for stealing cardboard boxes. To make matters worse, rent is due, he hates his overbearing girlfriend, Joi (Paula Jai Parker), and his best friend, Smokey (Chris Tucker), owes the local drug dealer money — and that’s all before lunch. As the hours drag on, Jones and Smokey experience the gamut of urban life, complete with crackheads, shoot-outs and overly sexual pastors, concentrated into one single, unbelievable Friday.
