Quotes

Wanda: Honey, I was up and down Michigan Avenue picking up this and that for you, Niki!
[hands over gift]
Niki: So this one has money. Yippee. So, when does he move in, or do we go shack up with him? Or does he even have a shack? Maybe he just lives and deals in his limo. So you don't even have to go anywhere to cop. You can just go in his briefcase and grab, what you call, your little glass trick.
Wanda: [angrily slaps Niki] Oh, NIKI!

Excellent
17 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What a surprise I had when I accidentally came across this movie. I saw Holiday Heart on Logo early one Saturday morning after dropping my partner off at the airport. I was basically killing time! NOT! I began watching the film and I simply couldn't stop! I was hooked after the first ten minutes.

This is really a great little film and I recommend it to everyone. It touches a lot of issues and the setting is so refreshingly different. I also think Ving did a brilliant job playing the main character. I am sure he is glad to have that as part of his CV.

As for the rest of the cast, I thought they all did a great job. It wasn't until later that I remembered where I had seen Mykelty Williams

  • Boomtown. He played a great supporting role! Its great that Logo is


bringing this movie to us and I hope plenty of people get to see it.
