"I saw a preview for this on BET and thought I would check it out. I always love independent films, but have seen some really poor ones with horrible writing and rushed plots and horrible lighting, Truth Hall is not one of those. It is an exceptionally good film and very well written. This film touches on some really deep topics but manage to keep the humor alive as well. The ensemble cast is surprisingly great and I expect to see many of them doing major pictures soon. I read that one of the main characters, Jade Jenise Dixon, wrote and directed the film- she seems to really be in touch with the deep topics so many major films shy away from. The secrets that come out kept me enthralled in the film, though I we got to see more of what these women were like in college- it is clear that there were a lot of secrets and like they tend to do in real life, they are coming out at the wrong time. All in all I found the film to be refreshingly good and actually feel it should have been released in the theatres."

"THE MOVIE IS BASED ON FRIENDS FROM COLLEGE AND THEY REUNITE FOR A WEDDING AND HERE COMES THE SERCETS AND THE DRAMA THAT WE ALL HAVE. THE MOVIE IS REALLY GOOD AND ITS WORTH BUYING ."

"I loved the realness of this film. We all have skeletons in our closet and this film exposes what really happens with certain friendships. I would encourage people to purchase this film and reflect upon your own relationships. This movie will open your eyes in a lot of ways. The cast did a great job too!"
Same old, same old...

"Is there a lack of orginal thought in black movies or is our attention span just that short? The plot in this movie is the same as The Best Man with Taye Diggs a few years ago, even copying the 'cute' black ensemble photo & only twisting the story a little to make it more up to date. How can the same BS love story be sold over and over again? Boring! Yes, I love to hate the monotony in black movies. No growth whatsoever. We need a new Spike Lee."
