kiss shot, not so hot
17 December 2002 | by (london) – See all my reviews

If you are expecting a really funny comedy, as it says on the cover, and because you see Whoopi Goldbergs name on the credits, think again. Although its a decent enough story, a comedy its not, Whoopis naturally funny face was glummed down, the film did deal with serious affairs about a woman struggling to bring up her daughter, while trying to keep her house, but it still could have been a perfectly amusing and hilarious film. The ending was a joke one minute there arguing, the next scene, there driving of into the sunset, no scenes in between, and then it finishes. Its worth watching if you are a hardened Whoopi Goldberg fan, if not watch her in Ghost.
