One of the better shows on the WB
30 January 2001 | by (Chapel Hill,North Carolina) – See all my reviews

This was one of the funniest shows out there! Jamie Foxx had me crying laughing every time! His character was so convincing that he could get away with anything he pleased since he was just a bellhop who moved up in the business with his uncle and aunt at the Kings Tower Hotel. But he always was cool with his co-workers like Braxton and Fancy(especially when he tries to fall for her),but sometimes could come up with a scheme for anything,usually with hilarious results. Great show! Man,can he sing too!
