A successful asset manager, who has just received a huge promotion, is blissfully happy in his career and in his marriage. But when a temp worker starts stalking him, all the things he's worked so hard for are placed in jeopardy.
This is a stupidical send-up of "The Beverly Hillbillies" in the utmost meaning of it. I saw this just the other day,believe me when you see it that it is poorly written,poorly acted,and poorly directed,but I'll give it a thumb up for being half funny. It's a crying shame that this did not got straight to a movie theatre(or BET-TV for that manner)because it went straight to video just for that reason. Here you have a bunch of black folks that just get up there and act so darn silly at times,you hardly know what is going to happened next or to follow the storyline for that manner which gets off course. Basically the cast consists of comedians from BET's "Comicview",and actress(or crazy lady)Kim Whitley from BET's "Oh Drama!",and from the UPN series "Sparks". Its a shame that we as a people(African-Americans,some not all of them do this) get a role in a movie and act so foolish at times that we make ourselves look stupid. So pathetic.
NOTE: This movie also features three original members of the girl group Destiny's Children(also known as Destiny's Child before they went big time) with a young looking Beyonce Knowles who is in this movie for about 15 minutes who portrays one of the family members.
