Friday is one of the more memorable 90's movies for those who were teens and early 20's during that time period (90's). I don't want to give away story information, but the director's cut gives you a little more information to help you understand the situation better, but I believe it takes away from the movie. I have to agree with some other reviews. This is one of those movies that people memorize the lines too, and then say to each other at different times for a laugh, or to explain a situation. The Director's cut does have some nice extra information, but if I could only own one version, I would definitely chose the original theatrical version. This movie is a good choice if you already own the original, and are curious to see another 109 minutes of information. The added footage is more informational, than added to make it funnier.
