I Loved This Movie...But
15 January 2006 | by See all my reviews

I read the book also (am a big LaVryle Spenser fan) and I just recently watched the movie on the WE network. Just goes to show that love can happen at any age to anybody!

I found both Lynda and Steve(Lee & Christopher) both realistic as characters.

However, I wished that they hadn't begun the movie with the Quincy's family's loud party. It seems that part was inserted just to give Pam Grier a part.

Anyway, I have one small objection: when Joey was making his toast, he said that he wanted Judd to love Country Music INSTEAD of Rap.

My first thought was when I read that in the book and well as saw that in the movie:

Why couldn't Judd love BOTH types of music?

All Rap music isn't bad just like all Country Music isn't good.

I believe that he should have said that he wanted Judd to like and appreciate Country Music AS WELL AS Rap music. Otherwise, this movie was a loving, warm, romantic story.

I enjoyed it very much!
