Fun movie.
30 August 2002 | by (Pittsburgh, PA) – See all my reviews

Good clean movie with a message. They don't make them like this anymore. This movie reminds me of a later movie Mo Money!, though more for comedy with the Wayman brothers still clean and fun to watch. I gave this movie a 10 for entertainment value.
