Simplistic but enjoyable comedy.
14 February 2002 | by (Venice Beach, CA.) – See all my reviews

Amazing Grace features some extremely simplistic writing and broad (to say the least) acting, but the overall message of the film is positive and inspiring, and "Moms" is really a sight to see. She carries this film on her back with no effort at all. A classy performance by Moses Gunn and some wonderful location shooting (even though the film was shot in Philly, not Baltimore) aid the film as well. A bizarre cameo by Butterfly McQueen is the icing on the cake. Recommended. 7/10.
