Quotes

Robert Townsend: It brought to an end the black-exploitation movies of the '70s. After the studio saw that one film, they said "We're not making another." I just remember, a lot of the people in Hollywood were really upset. You know? Normally somebody says "You're not gonna work in this town again," and with Jackie a lot of people said "You'll not work in this *country* again."

Take your jerry curl and drip on to buy this
19 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I first saw this movie on "Lifetime" I then recorded it when it finally repeated. This is probably my favorite movie of all time. I just love the jokes especially Whoopi playing Ethel...I quote it all the time. "Here she is trying to make a comeback she gone! That's why you're making a documentary to try and help her *beep* come back" hahaha classic. I force everyone I know to watch this movie. The amount of guest stars is incredible and the songs I find myself singing as if the really existed. I love how they take stereotypes and make them funny also. Like Ivan and Snookie Tate. It is a classic and I have it on Tape and DVD...worth a watch or 40!
