Shaniqua Summers Wells:
I wasn't out of the house two hours before my mother turned my room into a den. She calls it a "den"; I call it a "shrine to her ego". When I was growing up, my mother's priorities were her career, her makeup, her hair, and then, her children, and that's the best thing I can say about her. To be fair, she did think about our hair and makeup. I got my first wig at age three. How many kids get that?

This was a great, entertaining movie. The setup was good and the acting was especially enjoyable. Overall, fun entertainment, and I hope they show it again on TV. The movie started out strong and continued to be so until the end, when things suddenly turned a little too emotional. The writer's should have followed the "Seinfeld Rule" -- no hugging, no crying, no learning.
