I think they are artists and they just move from one realm of art to another. To us films like friday are classics. To him its just another project.

I'm sure he's proud of it but I'm willing to bet that someone w/ that skill level is also good at other art practices too, so its just another feather in their cap.

There's also something to be said for quitting while you are ahead.

Forgot what video I saw but it was on here, BX. He hated doing the raunchy comedy. Being big on christianity. He didnt want to be remembered as Smokey cause in reality that wasn't him. Fans everywhere still heckle him with weed/friday references lol

I think he just felt some kind of way about not gettin paid much for the first Friday. Gettin played or feelin played is not somethin that everyone can just get over. It's also possible that he just saw himself as being too big to still be makin those type of movies. I respect his decision either way.

No no no no.

John Witherspoon before he died told the real behind the scenes truth.

With Friday Tucker is was getting peanuts as an actor.

Then came rush hour.

Got 3 million for your rush hour. Huge hit so he held out and got 20 million for rush hour 2. Then 25 million for rush hour 3.

As Witherspoon told it you don't drop your value. You go back to taking peanuts for Friday then other studios would be like,

....."Well if you took peanuts for doing Friday why not take peanuts for doing this movie?"

You don't see Robert Downey Jr or Brad Pitt or Leo DiCaprio dropping down unless THEY say they willing to take less. And they only reason they would take less is if it's Oscar material. So why should Chris Tucker go from 20-25 million range to peanuts in a blink of an eye when most smart actors don't??

Didn't watch but John Witherspoon already stated Chris left because he got into church and his new found faith wouldn't let him promote smoking weed, also Chris was getting that Rush Hour bag which Friday wasn't trying to pay.

If Chris Tucker only got paid $5000 for his role in Friday and didn't receive anything on the backend of its success, I wouldn't touch a sequel ever! Minimum Rush Hour 3 money.

But Friday with a 48 year old Chris Tucker, I'm all set

When was the last time you watched that movie? I had fond memories of it growing up but tried to watch in again like 2 years ago and turned it off like 30 min cus Chris Tucker does not shut the fu*k up, not just that but running his mouth never helps in the story, it’s just an annoying chris tucker

Black movies don't really get big budgets
because it doesn't make the money to get a big budget, chris tucker made more in the next few movies that he did then the entire Friday movie grossed worldwide...….. the first rush hour movie grossed more than the entire Friday movie line (all 3 movies)

lol @ black movies don't get big budgets, because the sh*t don't sell...…. of course they don't, any movie that doesn't sell that well doesn't get a big budget.

$28,215,918 <--- this is how much the Friday movie grossed worldwide, how are they going to pay chris tucker what he makes if the entire movie doesn't make what he gets paid as an actor?
