I knew that the movie had to be great cause Ice Cube was in it and I liked his movies. Until I saw "First Sunday" I had no idea who Katt Williams or Tracy Morgan are (Unbelievable) But now after watching it I know that Ice Cube, Katt Williams, and Tracy Morgan make a perfect trio and they should make more movies together. You will not stop laughing, promise. But this is just my opinion so watch it. "First Sunday" is worth every penny!

Ice Cube stars as a struggling young father who's life revolves around his young son. Although he has somewhat of a rocky relationship with the boy's mother, he is a mainstay in his child's life. Until his ex tells him that unless she can come up with 17K to maintain her beauty salon, she'll have to move to Atlanta. Determined not to let his son leave the city of Baltimore, Cube teams up with childhood friend LeeJohn (Tracy Morgan) to rob an inner city church....but when things don't go exactly as planned, the two instead find themselves being ministered to by the church's congregation (Loretta Devine, Katt Williams).....and everyone discovers that an even bigger rat may be hiding amidst the holier than thou.
Another respectable product by Cube....reinforcing his credibility as an actor/producer. Comedic relief is abundant thanks to Katt Williams and Tracy Morgan...I laughed out loud thoughout. If you're looking for something fun and light with an undercurrent of seriousness, you've found it. Grab the popcorn and enjoy.

**1/2

A very appealing cast is left with little to work with in "First Sunday," a manufactured comedy whose script fails to rise to the level of its actors. Desperate for some quick cash, Durell and LeeJohn come up with a scheme to break into a local church and carry off the fund earmarked for construction of a new building. Unfortunately, this seemingly simple robbery quickly turns into a complicated hostage situation when a dozen or so of the most prominent church members unexpectedly show up on the scene.

"First Friday" does elicit a few hearty laughs, due, in large part, to its game cast and the occasional funny line scattered in and amongst the numerous clunkers. Ice Cube effectively plays straight man to Tracy Morgan`s endearingly bumbling sidekick, and they, together with the other actors, help to comprise a fine comic ensemble. The problem lies in a screenplay which often goes for the obvious joke over something truly original or clever, and which pours on the syrup to alarming proportions near the end just to ensure the movie its status as a morally upright, "feel-good" comedy.

It's a harmless enough little diversion if you have some time to kill, but the company is far more appetizing than what it is they`re dishing up.

Durell Washington (Ice Cube) loves his son and he doesn't want him to move to Atlanta. The only way the two of them will be able to stay together is if he can come up with a large sum of money. It's not his idea to rob a church, but he goes along with it and all kinds of problems arise.

First Sunday has good actors and a few good messages. I don't think this comedy would have been very funny, though, if it wasn't for Katt Williams. The movie became enjoyable when his character, Ricky, was introduced. I always appreciate a good belly laugh and Katt's quick-witted comebacks were hilarious! I don't think I'd be interested in his raw standup comedy, but he was great in this movie. He's so good at what he does, I wouldn't be surprised if he adlibbed the entire time.

Ice Cube and Tracy Morgan star in this movie as two guys needing to get money. Ice Cube plays a father who is trying to get money to stop his ex from taking his son to Atlanta. Tracy plays his friend who is trying to get money to pay back Jamaican gangsters for 10 wheelchairs that cost $12,000 dollars each. Yea, I thought that was silly, but at the same time, uniquely funny. And so from there the adventure begins.

Eventually, Tracy's character, Lee John, gets an idea to rob a church. Ice Cube's character, Durell, was against the idea at first, but eventually agreed to do it. In this church, they run into problems, and they learn about their mistakes and shortcomings. I thought this movie was funny and at times sensible. I liked Katt Williams, too. He was very funny.

I usually have a favorite character, but I have to say that they were all equally fun to watch. But my favorite scene was when Cube and Tracy were in the church for the first time, and the choir was singing. The choir was so awesome. I really enjoyed the singing a lot.

Overall, I think this movie was pretty good. I laughed, was surprised at times, and even felt inspirational during the choir singing scene. Not too bad at all.

Thanks.

I know people do not look for messages in films of this type. I see a lot of people expected a comedy when it was a combination of that plus drama. Presumptions that Ice Cube, Tracy Morgan plus Katt Williams and their prior work in comedies made this film fall on bad reviews. I thought those pre-conceived notions hurt this film from getting the props it deserved. Being a Talbert supporter for many years, this was not a 5 star but 4 is close enough. I would have wanted it to have actually been filmed here in Baltimore. Then, maybe it would have not looked as if it were shot elsewhere, which it showed badly.

I had fun with the film and the message it left. It was all about salvation, redemption, forgiveness and self-worth. We live in harsh times and this movie showed the depth of what one would do to survive. It happens everyday and at anytime but this flick added the real and the humorous view when the news @ 9 shows the horrific. I plan on purchasing the DVD for the extras no doubt. Katt Williams was a lil over used but his parts were truly hilarious. Having seen another version of this film... I can't wait to own it.
