Corrected entry: At the beginning of the film when Ice Cube is getting in his dad's dog pound van ready to go and live with his cousins, he remembers Smokey (Chris Tucker in the first Friday movie) and utters the words "I'll miss it around here but I'm going to especially miss my boy Smokey who went into rehab a month ago." If this film is set next Friday from the original as the title suggests how did Smokey go away a month ago?

Correction: The story is not suggested to show that it is 7 days later from the original movie. In the beginning of the story it tells us that it's been a while since the last episode.

Correction: Craig mentions a 4 month period where Deebo was locked up.

Correction: Craig narrated "Deebo ended up going to jail for about 4 years." In the behind the scenes featurette, Ice Cube mentioned that Deebo broke out 4 years after the brutal fight that happened in the original film. So, the film took place 4 years after Friday. Friday was shot in 1994, then released in 1995. Next Friday was shot in 1999 then released in 2000. That makes it a 5 year gap in release. However, the events of this sequel still took place 4 years after the event of the original film. Since Next Friday took place 4 years after the events of the original Friday, it is possible that Friday might have taken place in 1995, and Next Friday might have taken place in 1999 (due to some of the pop culture references in the film).

Correction: The title is only for sequel marketing purposes, rather than calling it "Friday 2." It's like "Star Trek: The Next Generation" takes place 100 years later, not 25 years, which is the length of a typical generation.


Corrected entry: After Craig's father goes to the bathroom at Kay's Grill he's talking to the people sitting around the bathroom and you can see Deebo and his cousin at the phone booth in the background having the same conversation they had when they first arrived at the phone booth during the previous scene. (00:23:46)


Correction: Actually they were still talking before they called Kay's Grill, they were supposed to still be there so they could make the phone call.

Correction: You mean Deebo's little brother.

Corrected entry: When Day-Day, Craig, and Roach are in the back of Pinky's Record Store, Roach pulls out a bud brownie and says that is all he has. Craig then proceeds to pull out a joint. Later in the film when Roach is keeping Chico the dog occupied he feeds him the bud brownie. Once Chico is lying down and Roach is lying on the other side of the fence, he is smoking a joint. Where did it come from?

Correction: Roach is in fact smoking the roach that Craig pulled out of his pocket earlier.

Corrected entry: Towards the end, after Elroy pays the Korean lady to pop his back into place, if you look in the background at the big screen TV, you can see the back pooping scene, only they're wearing different clothes.

Correction: Actually, its not the scene from Next Friday that is on the TV. It's a scene from "The Jefferson's" where George is getting his back popped and Mrs Ho-Kym (the Korean lady from next door) happens to be using the same method of popping Elroy's back.

Corrected entry: After DaDa and Roach got fired, they drive back to DaDa's house. When they go to pull in to DaDa's driveway, he starts backing into it, but when it shows them actually pulling in, they are going forward

Correction: He isn't backing up - if you watch closer he's circling around the turnaround to his driveway.

Continuity mistake: When Baby Joker and Joker are counting the money in the room and they get interupted by Little Joker and the two girls they shove the money in the pump. Then when Craig gets into the room and opens the drawer with the pump and pulls out some money it is all wrapped up in rubber bands.

Trivia: In the scene right after Uncle Elroy showed Craig the backyard, Craig is going into Day-Day's room wiping his shirt. On the right side of the screen, A 'Player's Club' poster is on the wall which Ice Cube directed and starred in.

Question: What was Deebo in jail for? I know at the beginning of the movie it shows a flashback with the police showing up after the fight, but why would they arrest him?


Chosen answer: It's not stated, but most likely after everyone witnessed someone finally standing up to Deebo that people gained the courage to testify against him. Most likely breaking and entering charges (as he did at Stanley's house) and assault.
