21 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film I remember was one of the highest-rated movies on cable ever and I know why - it's one of the most original, heart-felt comedies since 'Groundhog Day'. Truly loved the film and some of the endearing scenes.

Some of the best scenes involve actor John Witherspoon ('Friday'), Pam Grier, and Duane Martin (who with comedian Margaret Cho) really draw the laughs. But what I really like is the film doesn't descend into SNL humor - which is always tasteless, but maintains the Harold Ramis quality of humanity.

I'm not sure when it was released theatrically, but it should have been the next 'Rush Hour' without doubt.
