A very poignant, interesting story
5 June 2000 | by (san diego, california) – See all my reviews

A story that I found interesting and comedian Jimmie Walker's only dramatic performance ever is a true classic worth watching!! Additional cast members multi-talented Debbie Allen, Tamu, Kevin Hooks and the man himself James Earl Jones helped make this movie memorable.
