Pamela Pearl finds herself emotionally cut off from her wealthy father, a conservative city commissioner, who has her sent to a New York psychiatric hospital for evaluation. It's there she meets wild child Nicky Marotta, who has big dreams of becoming a star and encourages Pamela's poetry. They decide to escape the hospital and go on the run, hiding out and setting up a band. Meanwhile, radio DJ Johnny LaGuardia has caught wind of the missing girls and covers the story on his show. After eventually meeting the girls, they form a close bond and Pamela uses the station to reach out to her hypocritical father. She learns to come out of her shell and find her own identity, but when she's ready to return home, Nicky wants to stay as she is; independent and performing illegal gigs in Times Square. Teenage self-discovery can be a tumultuous thing - and these girls need each other to survive it.

After writing and starring in the funny homeboys-and-hemp comedies "Friday" and "Next Friday," rapper-actor Ice Cube isn't quite out of ripe screwball ideas, but "Friday After Next" spreads them pretty thin. In fact, the "Pink Panther"-styled cartoon opening credits are the biggest laugh in the movie.
Story proper begins with slapstick cousins Craig (Cube) and Day-Day (Mike Epps) back in Compton after spending the last film in the suburbs. Desperate for rent money after a "ghetto Santa" breaks into their apartment at Christmas time, swiping presents and cash, the guys take seasonal security jobs at a dilapidated strip mall where their grumpy, squabbling dads (John Witherspoon and Don "D.C." Curry) have a barbecue joint.
Armed with nothing but a second-hand uniform and a whistle, thickwit Day-Day thinks he's suddenly a supercop, rousting church-lady carolers for loitering, but running away from gangbangers when he rubs them the wrong way. Meanwhile Craig has his eye on a drop-dead gorgeous salesgirl (K.D. Aubert) at the strip's new clothing outlet, Pimps & Hos. (Other stores include Holy Moly Donuts, check cashing, liquor and 94-cent stores, and Toyz in the Hood.)
