Ice Cube stars and debuts as a screenwriter in this comedy about a couple of unemployed friends who spend a Friday hanging out in their Los Angeles neighborhood. Cube has his hands full with a stoner partner (Chris Tucker) who double-crosses his supplier, an unreasonable girlfriend and a local bully.

Cube has a strong screen presence, but his script is obvious and short on wit. Directed by F. Gary Gray. Rated R.
