"I rented this movie last night to get a good laugh. I can honestly say that I got a few. It is about family relationships and how we all need to get over past grievances with them, no matter how many times they screw over us. Mo'Nique wasn't at her funniest but then again, this movie is rated PG-13. As for the things that go on at a salon, people, these things really DO happen. If this movie came out in the 70's, it would have been called a blaxploitation flick. The movie has several meanings...but, did any of us hear about it going to theatres? It had its funny parts..rent it. I wouldn't suggest adding it to your DVD collection though."
It's a good film to watch with your sisterfriends

"I have to say the movie was pretty good....I didn't get the movie with expectations...I just wanted to see what he had to say...it spoke about family, love, and things are not always as they appear. I enjoyed the perfomances and I had an overall good time watching the film. People need to stop over analyzing the movie...it's entertaining...yes it's predictable just like most movies...don't get it twisted...it's not like it's a suspense film or something...."

"I loved this movie. It was funny. I loved Monique and all the other characters. It was a slight repeat of Beauty Shop but other than that it is a funny, sweet movie."
VERY, VERY CUTE & COOL MOVIE!!!

"Okay....some moments in the beginning contained a bit of over- the-top acting, which tends to happen in many of our Black movies (yes, I am Black, too, don't get it twisted!). At first, I remember thinking, "Uh...yeah". But then, the movie surprised me. The movie is funny, exciting, and keeps you guessing what is to happen next. MONIQUE is just good. DA BOMB. I love her, anyway! She is too funny, and this movie showed different sides of her (emotionally), which we usually don't get to see, but you know is in her to do! One thing this movie DID do was to give us a NICE perspective on showing different types of Blacks (successful, ghetto fabulous and more). The women were beautiful, the men were CUTIES (Owww!!!), and Joe Torry's Asian wife was TOO COOL!!! To top it off, the songs from the soundtrack were BANGIN'. Why are they NOT being sold and featured? All in all, see this movie to support, get your laugh on and be entertained. You GO, Leslie!
