The classic movie Friday that brought us the phrases “Bye Felicia!” and “You ain’t got to lie Craig!” turns 20 this year!
Still heavily influencing present-day pop culture, Friday will be returning to movie theaters on April 20th. Rapper and actor Ice Cube, who played the lead role Craig in the film, told Buzzfeed News, “For the theaters, for New Line [Cinema], for the fans to want to pay homage to the movie in this way is cool. It lets you know how much people appreciate it and how much fun it is … and it lets you know that Friday is now a part of the American fabric.”
The one-day release will feature a special director’s cut of Friday, showcasing 24 minutes of the film’s behind-the-scenes footage and interviews with the cast after the movie airs.The accompanying soundtrack to the film will also receive special treatment and will be reissued as a vinyl record. In 1995, the Friday soundtrack was on the Billboard charts at the Number 1 spot for two weeks and went double platinum.
