For Next Friday, New Line has once again done a great job on a DVD. The transfer, framed at the theatrical ratio of 1.85: 1 (anamorphic), is superb. Colors are sharp and constant and there are no defects. The soundtrack, which includes a lot of hip-hop and rap tunes, is good but not outstanding, lacking any real range. The surrounds in the Dolby Digital 5.1 track are rarely used, but that is far from a surprise. Everything seems centered up front, with clear dialogue and sound that is distortion-free. The DVD for the original Friday was a bit disappointing in the way of supplemental material, but this disc more than makes up for it. There are numerous highlights to this disc, starting with an audio commentary track. Though they seem to be recorded separately, director Steve Carr and Ice Cube talk about everything from making a sequel to where they each began. It also might be the first hip-hop commentary, as it has numerous moments of reverb and vocal styling done after the fact. It's a bit unusual and takes a little time to get used to, but is interesting nevertheless. Next is a rather lengthy featurette with a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the film that includes numerous interviews with the cast and crew. A real plus is an audition tape for Mike Epps. While the video and audio quality are awful, it's interesting to see Epps, a stand-up comic without film experience, interact with Cube. An interesting idea that has been used on other discs -- watching the film with a small box showing the storyboards -- is taken to the extreme here as it can be done for the entire film. In addition there are bloopers and an alternate ending, some strange painting of the Cucamonga locations, music videos from Ice Cube ("You Can't Do It" featuring Mack 10 and Ms. Toi) and Lil Zane ("Money Stretch"). There are also trailers for this film, including the G-rated version and the R-rated version, plus trailers for Friday, The Players Club, and Dangerous Ground. Finally, there are some DVD-ROM features, including access to the screenplay. This is another excellent disc in the Platinum Series from New Line.

this movie I got for my birthday and I really injoy watching this movie over and over again.
The best movie ever!Chris Tucker and Ice Cube are the best actors for this movie.
This is the best movie ever everyone should see this movie.I saw it the first day it came out.
It was very dissappointing to see this Friday continuation. It lacked everything that the 1st Friday had. Especially the humor.DJ Pooh's writing and the humor of Chris Tucker are surely missed in this sequel. The only positive thing that i can say, is that Ice Cube has found his niche as a film maker. It isn't all that great...but then again, that's why I'm writing about it ,while he's being about it. Sorry white folks, if that slipped past ya. If it wasn't for the fact that this version is an ongoing movie with endless sequels (Friday After Next), this would be well worth forgetting.
i think that da movie woz dop i watch it over and over again i th ink that if it had chris tucker in da movie it would have been sick
If you saw the first one, you have to see this one. New characters add a different flavor to the movie. There is no Smokey but Uncle Elroy is a perfect replacement.
This movie was a true comedy. I received it as a Christmas gift, and I really enjoy it. I watch it over and over. I just can't get enough. I recommend people of all ages to purchase this suspensing comedy! :-)
I DID NOT LIKE NEXT FRIDAY AT ALL. I MEAN IT WAS NOT NEAR AS FUNNY AS FRIDAY. I RENTED IT FOR SEVEN NIGHTS AND RETURNED THE DAY AFTER I RENTED IT. I WASTED A DOLLAR ON THIS DUMB MOVIE.
That movie was good. I am a Chris Tucker fan though. They need him back. It makes the whole movie a lot funnier. Ice Cube played a good role. Mike Epps can't take the place of Chris Tucker but he wasn't bad. The white guy was especially funny. I would suggest this movie to all my friends. Siskel & Ebert
I LIKE THE MOVIE BUT I FEEL THEY SHOULD HAVE HAD CHRIS TUCKER IN IT ALSO I HOPE THE OTHER FRIDAY AFTER NEXT WOULD HAVE HIM IN IT THAT MY WORD TO IC CUBE GOOD MOVIE WRITER BUT YOU NEED TO PUT HIM BACK IN THANK YOU.
