Down right funny!
18 April 2002 | by (Chapel Hill,North Carolina) – See all my reviews

Not only this show is one of the top-ten shows that garners a huge African-American audience on UPN,but its one of the funniest ever devised. Think of it as the female version of Sanford and Son mixed in with a hint of The Jeffersons,What's Happening,and Good Times not to mention that 80's show 227(in Sandra Clark mode)for good measure. Moni'Que is side splitting hilarious as the mom was always tries to get the Professor but overwhelming results. Countress Vaughn is the daughter Kim along with her friends tries to conjure up one lame scheme after another. When you see it,you'll be crying laughing!
