Friday After Next ★½ 2002 (R)

Third installment of the series shows Christmas in the ‘hood, as heroes Craig (Ice Cube) and Day-Day (Epps) are forced to take jobs as mall security guards after a ghetto Santa (Smiley) steals their presents and rent money. The usual brand of lowbrow humor is shoveled out in heaping piles and most of the regulars return, including John Witherspoon as Craig's chronically flatulent father. 85m/C VHS, DVD .
