"I'd never heard of this movie when I picked it up in Walmart so I took a chance and bought it. That was $5.50 well spent because I was not disappointed. This movie is funny at times, sad at times, thought-provoking at times, but entertaining at all times. I actually cried at the end. I can't remember the last movie I watched that brought tears to my eyes. Anyhoo, I turned my ringer off so I wouldn't be disturbed. If you like "30 Years To Life" you'll like this movie too. The main reason I like this movie is because the characters are so real: the drunk who puts somebody on blast at the family gathering, the "Oreo" friend (black on the outside, white on the inside), the "Ms. Independent-I-Don't-Need-No-Man-I-Got-Dental-Benefits-and-my-own-business" female, the angry one who has that inner turmoil but is taking it out on everybody else, the so- called "Mack" who fronts like he's "The Man" when he's really on lock, the "We-need-to-take-this-relationship-to-another-level" one,(marriage) and the loud sister, the one who keeps the party going no matter what (Wendy Raquel Robinson). The only thing I didn't like about this movie is that in some scenes women were referred to as "b-----s" and "h--s." Anyway, Guy Torry is an outstanding actor, he acted his heiny off in this one. His character is the one that stood out. But don't take my word for it, take a chance like I did and see it for yourself. You won't be disappointed."
So much potential but....

"This flick had so much potential in terms of content matter accommpanied with an incredibly talented roster, but somehow someone managed to screw that all up.
The film has a "I wrote this movie over the weekend" feel to it; it's riddled with a bunch of serious and intense subject matter that never amounts to anything and fails to entertain.
Though believable, you'll quickly grow bored with the sterotypical characters that have no learning curve or sensible growth."
