Technical Specs


Did You Know?

When Franklin (Chris Tucker) is in the jail cell, he shows his cell mate (Faizon Love) how the cops grabbed him the same way as in Friday, also starring Tucker and Love.

Revealing mistakes: The scene in the Colosseum, Arron raises an AT4 (rocket launcher) to blow up the control booth, as he raises it, you can see through the tube. Obviously no rocket in the launcher. Also, AT-4s are not re-loadable, the launchers have one shot and then are discarded.

James Russell: Hey hey, Barclay, it's James. How you doing? Listen to me, I've got Franklin Hatchett.
Barclay: Russell, don't play games with me. Words like that give me a stiffy and at my age I can not afford to waste them.

User Review



Chris Tucker and Charlie Sheen are excellent and hilarious in this great movie. Almost all of the jokes that Chris Tucker made I laughed at. He proved once again, after Friday fame, that he is a great comic. Charlie sheen does really good in this one, too.

Overall the whole movie is a great comedic flick and I definitely, definitely recommend this to the average person. Rating 10 out of 10.
