A warm and loving movie
27 October 2001 | by (Midnight Movie Land) – See all my reviews

This movie was released right smack in the middle of the classic Blaxploitation era but is a definite departure from that genre.

It is a warm movie about a family sticking together through everything.

I saw this movie when it was first released and enjoyed it then, it was very nice to find it on TV so I could tape it and enjoy it over and over again.

The movie reminds me of the TV sitcom "Good Times", and fans of that TV show should enjoy this movie, it's just not as silly as the TV show could often be.

Recommended, and I would not steer you wong!
