Amazing mockumentary - Jenifer Lewis and Whoopi Goldberg are the best !!!!!!!
10 December 2007 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

Jackie's Back....first of all I had no idea what kind of movie this might be...and to be honest...I only bought it because of Whoopi Goldberg ;) But what I get so see was a great experience and my first mockumentary at all...it's amazing....and really gripping to watch...10 stars for this movie Jenifer Lewis did a great job and it's amazing how many stars take part...you really have to see it...

For those of you in Germany or any other European country who want to watch this movie...it's not that easy to get this movie...because it has only been published in the USA...I got it via internet and a famous internet action ;) It's worth its money !!!!!
