Movie Reviews

Not that bad
Eddie Famine | Chicago Il | 07/05/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"There are a couple good things about this movie, really.
Yes, the plot is predictable, but which Hollywood movie have you seen lately you haven't guessed then ending, and the production is not that great.
But the acting of the two newcomers, Tenique Mathieu and Andy Gershenzon is excellent. I only hope that they get some really good movie roles soon.
It's a family movie so no, it doesn't attempt to solve all racial and social ills. It's a comedy, relax and you'll have a few laughs.
Thelma! Don't stoop this low!

"Like all African Americans, I just love seeing Thelma from "Good Times." However, that's the end of my praise.

This movie had bad acting, bad timing, and a predictible plot. This has the same, tired line of stock characters that you would expect. Why is it that in this most Black film, the only gay character is white!? Again, Black gays are erased so that folk can lie about "We don't have that in OUR community!" and then folk wonder why some brothas are on the down-low! (Actually, the multicultural and excellent film "What's Cooking?" rendered homosexuality entirely white and most heterosexuality was portrayed of color too, but not in the sloppy fashion here.)

There are better films about interracial marriages out there. It's ludicrous and shameful that any adult would fail to tell their parents that they had a child.

The jokes are corny. The main characters are stupid and then they wonder why support characters are just as stupid. This film is sooooo poor-quality that it boggles the mind. I can't believe I let some brain cells die in watching this stinker. This film is clearly designed for viewers who think no movie can be a bad movie. I would not recommend this film to my worst enemy!"
