'Friday After Next' (2002) -- Miss

The third installment of the "Friday" franchise stars rapper Ice Cube, right, alongside Mike Epps as two slacker cousins -- both working as shopping center security guards -- who try to track down a burglar dressed as Santa Claus, who steals rent money and presents on Christmas Eve. Despite premiering at No. 3 in its box-office opening weekend in November 2002 (total gross, $33 million), the hokey story line and cartoonish humor left many devout "Friday" fans with a lump of coal.
