I was surprised at the score Friday received because in my opinion it deserved a higher score than it got. Watching it the first time, I wasn’t thinking about whether or not it was a diverse movie, it was just a good movie. After considering if it’s a diverse movie or not, I feel like it is because the farther is involved in this movies and works to take care of his family. This is not typical in a lot of movies portraying black families.
This movie receive the score it did because the scenes wasn’t diverse enough to get a higher score. For example they're two friends smoking weed on a porch. One friend drags another one in some trouble which was some common for a scene in movies that came out around this time.
Yes I feel that this rating is an accurate representation because It does include everything I consider to be diverse and is not to be diverse.
I feel that a B- for this movies is unacceptable. Ice Cube, Chris Tucker, and John Witherspoon all are excellent actors and the lesson for this movie is even more meaningful than movies with a higher rating.
