True Family Affair
15 July 2002 | by (Pittsburgh PA) – See all my reviews

Wouldn't you like to be seventeen again! This delightful comedy starring the lovely and talented Mowry twins and little brother Tahj is a true family affair. It's a pleasure to see a film about a black family where all the main characters are portrayed in a positive light. Aspiring young director Jeff Byrd displays his talent in weaving a humorous tale of a scientific experiment gone awry and grandparents Gene and Cat (Robert Hooks and Hope Clarke) are miraculously transformed from senior citizens to seventeen year olds. What follows is a story of discovery, love, forgiveness, and understanding. An added treat is a cameo appearance by Boyz II Men playing swing music in a touching big band dance hall scene. Good clean fun for the entire family.
