Cause it was such a low budget movie. A lot of film companies didnt wanna take a chance on it probably. Once they saw what it was capable of, they started getting that money for the rest of the Fridays. Now Friday 4 They might be running out with the series now

For those at work that might cant watch the video, he said on the first Friday he got 10k or maybe a little less than that. The second one he got 400,000. And the third he got a million.

sh*t, in the end that was a good move taking that first movie. He helped build something, which in turn paid him back in the following two movies. Good look.

If you think about it 10k wasnt bad for him.. he didnt have a big a.ss role.. he had that 1 scene in the beginning about taking out the garbage. then the dog catcher. big a.ss gap.. then the sh*t on his pants then at the end wit him sayin f!ght like a man. that 10k in the 80's was just.
