Next Friday
Go and see Next Friday today because things in the hood just went suburban. Yes, Next Friday is funny. Yes, you will quote lines from the film. Yes, you will love Mike Epps, Ice Cube, Witherspoon, and wait until you hear Don "DC" Curry spit out the line, "but I'm your Uncle Elroy" in that classic rising southern baritone.
