How many friday movies are there?

The Friday movie franchise is one of the most hilarious stoner buddy comedies out there. Featuring Craig Jones, an unemployed young man who gets himself into all sorts of trouble with his friends, the Friday movies will keep you laughing for hours on end. The films are written by DJ Pooh and Ice Cube, two of the most famous rappers of all time, and are sure to please any viewer.

The first film, simply titled Friday (1995), follows Craig and his friend Smokey through a series of uproarious situations. The movie starred some of the biggest names in hip-hop at the time, including Ice Cube, Chris Tucker, Regina King, Mike Epps, Tiny Lister Jr., and Bernie Mac. The movie was a sleeper hit that went on to become a cult classic.

Although the movie was well received, there were some criticisms of it. Especially from some of the cast members, such as Faizon Love, who claimed that they only got paid $2,500 a piece to star in the movie. Nevertheless, the film was a success and led to a sequel.

The second film, Next Friday (2000), followed the same plot as the original movie. But it was more successful, bringing in more than $27 million worldwide against its relatively low budget. The last film, Friday After Next (2002), was less successful, but it still brought in a respectable amount of money. Currently, there are three movies in the Friday franchise and there are rumors of a fourth being released in 2022.
