Too Funny! Watch VERY RARE Footage Of The “Friday” Movie Rehearsals!
We all remember when Friday hit theaters in 1995 and when “Smokey” (Chris Tucker) told “Dee-bo” (Tiny “Zeus” Lister, Jr.) “You got knocked the f^*% out”; when the late Bernie Mac’s character, “Pastor Cleaver” preached his way right into “Ms. Parker’s” bedroom, and when Craig’s (Ice Cube) Pops (John Witherspoon) decided to give him a man-to-man talk while sitting on the toilet stinking up the place…LOL. The term “Bye Felicia” has even taken on a life of it’s own now ever since Cube told that to “Felicia” (Angela Means) in the movie. This film had a bunch of heavy hitters in it, including Regina King, Anna Maria Horsford, and Nia Long and basically, everything about the movie was funny as all get-out, but the behind-the-scenes rehearsal footage is just as hilarious. It’s rare that we get to see what it’s like before the big movie sets, the film crew and all of the frills and the pretty stuff come into play on a classic movie like Friday.
Check out the video clip below to see how Chris Tucker, Ice Cube, Tiny, and the rest of the cast actually rehearsed some their scenes together, in their rawest form- this was all about skills and seizing opportunity. *Contains explicit language*
In April of this year (2015) Friday actually turned 20 years old! Can you believe it’s been that long? Dang! Where did the time go?!! Anyways, ET posted a video to celebrate Friday’s anniversary with this behind-the-scenes footage of some of the cast. Check it out…
What do y’all think? Is it time for Friday to make a comeback with it’s original cast? Most of these actors blew up after the first Friday release, so the movie budget alone might not even cover their current fee, but it would be cool to see Chris Tucker get his mojo back and create the same type of magic he did the first time around. We’ll just have to sit back and see.
