Ice Cube’s still promising ‘Last Friday,’ 10 movies he should’ve never made

For some reason, Ice Cube is still committed to releasing a fourth (and supposedly final) entry in his popular Friday film series. Cube has shown already that he’s got a bit of the “Eddie Murphy Disease” when it comes to unnecessary sequels, but more than that, the successful rapper/actor/director has consistently shown that he’s capable of producing some really, really bad movies.

Add that to the fact that there’s hardly ever a reason to do a “Part 4” to anything not named Star Wars, and it doesn’t bode well for Last Friday. Even with original Friday star Chris Tucker, this movie would probably be a bad idea. But that isn’t going to stop Cube.

“Yeah, [Last Friday is] coming,” he said in an interview with 2DopeBoyz. “We’re marinating on it, putting it together. We just turned in the script, so it’s going to take a couple of more months to put it together.”

We know Cube has done some great stuff in movies:  the original Friday is a comedy classic and his role as Doughboy in Boyz N the Hood is damn-near iconic, but here are 10 complete misses that should remind him what can happen when he doesn’t show a little cinematic restraint…

      Hey! its not strictly of hiphop/rap fans or even a black ordinance. “Friday after next” is one of my all time greats, and EVERYONE should see that film… Law

    Half of this list was right and half of it was wrong. Barber Shop 2, All About the Benjamins, Player’s Club, First Sunday and Anaconda were all classics. The other ones I agree weren’t all that great.

    Edit: To be honest, I haven’t really watched the other 5 lol.
