"If you have read the book, back away from this DVD. I was very upset at this movie. They made Sterling into a whiny poem reciting punk, and ED into a jerk. Then they made the brother James into a user and his character almost seemed gay. I was horrified as I watched this movie. The book is based off of Sterling wanting a child and going through with a contest to have his baby. Colby visit Sterling to try and help her brother's cosmetic company. The movie has her brother entering her in the contest without her knowledge to help his none existant clothing line. In the book her brother doesn't know anything about how and why they are together until almost the end. Then Colby isn't a virgin like she is in the book, hell they don't even get married in the movie. Then he gets her pregnant and they break up. Sterling whines the ENTIRE film and I mean the ENTIRE film. I mean he goes infront of her class and recites these dumb poems, ugh. Then another character that I love, Diamond, they turned her into a whore I was completely appauled. I can't believe that Brenda Jackson let them make this film. And Where was Kyle he isn't even mentioned in this film."
The book deserves 5 stars...

"I heard that BET had aired this movie, and was very disappointed that I missed it on TV, but now, having read the plot description, I don't think I can watch it after all. The plot is significantly different than that of the book (by Brenda Jackson), which to me, was the sweetest love story I've read in a long time. I'd hate to spoil the memories!"
Money Can't Buy You Love

"This is an example of a true love story between a handsome movie star and a very pretty school teacher. His name is Silver and he has everything a man could want the upscale crib, the fancy rides, and all the women he can handle. But what he really wants is a family. After follwing the advice of his manager he holds a contest offering a million dollars to the perfect woman who will have his baby. Well the high school teacher name Colby catches his eye. But of course she rejects him as being a shallow hollywood player with all his violent movies and actress girlfriends.From this point he does just about anything to capture this woman's heart. I guarantee you will fall in love with this movie. If you a big fan of romance, drama and action this is a must have for your collection. Oh, by the way the ending is just so heartwarming and special I had to shed a few tears."
WHY MESS UP A GREAT BOOK?

"I may have liked this movie if I hadn't read the book first. It is my honest opinion that if BET wants to make these wonderful books into movies that they should at least follow the blueprint in the book. I read this book by Brenda Jackson and it is one of my favorites. The movie strayed so far from the book that only the names were the same.This is a wonderful story but to feel the full effect, you must read the book. The movie was garbage. A suggestion to BET keep publishing the books and leave the moviemaking to someone else."
