Sloppy sequel to Friday and Next Friday, with Ice Cube and Mike Epps working as security guards at a strip mall in South Central LA on Christmas Eve. Burgled by a drunken Santa, they pursue the thief, get stoned, hit on women, and verbally and physically abuse each other and other people—almost none of which is even vaguely funny. Ice Cube, whose acting usually consists of bringing his characters' resentments to a boil, comes across here as surly and petulant, while Epps keeps changing from scene to scene. Friday had moments of stoned charm and telling neighborhood detail; this second sequel is angry, cruel, and misogynist. Marcus Raboy directed. 85 min.
