Ice Cube and Tracy Morgan are two thieves who haven't got a prayer in First Sunday, a sinfully, funny comedy co-starring Katt Williams and Chi McBride. Sentenced to 5,000 hours of community service, Durell Jefferson's (Cube) life quickly goes from bad to worse. Realizing that the Lord helps those who help themselves, he eventually decides to help himself to the neighborhood church's building fund. Accompanied by his dimwitted partner-in-crime Lee John (Morgan), the two down-on-their-luck men are dismayed to discover the cash has already been stolen, so they hold the congregation hostage in a Hail Mary attempt to learn who amongst the righteous has already run away with their loot! Also starring Tiffany New York Pollard, Rickey Smiley, Loretta Devine and Malinda Williams.

Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: First Sunday may have its heart in the right place, but its funny bone is dislocated.
This movie fails as a comedy, a drama, a morality play, and as a coherent motion picture. Awful stuff!

Common Sense Says
Predictable crime comedy has some iffy content.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this movie -- which stars popular comic actors Ice Cube and Tracy Morgan -- starts out as a heist comedy but ends up more like a Tyler Perry film, with a sentimental, moral message about taking responsibility and never giving up hope. Language is milder than in other PG-13 films but is present (including "ass" and "s--t"), as is the central violent act of taking a group of parishioners hostage in a church. There's no outright sex, but a character does overhear some shenanigans in a massage parlor, and a man receives a sensual massage from what turns out to be a cross-dresser.
