Craig (Ice Cube) has just been fired but has no motivation to find a new job, and his friend Smokey (Chris Tucker) lives to smoke joints. Smokey has his own problems involving $200 worth of marijuana that he was given to sell but smoked himself. Now he has no money to pay the dope dealer, and payment is due that night. This film does manage to present some good humor from the lives of those in the dreary world of Los Angeles' not-so-successful residents as Craig and Smokey encounter a variety of misfits while hanging out on Craig's front stoop.
