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!
[storms away]

Ving Rhames and Alfre Woodard
4 December 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've seen lots of movies with Ms Woodard and not knowingly have seen Mr Rhames in his other movies. Pulp Fiction was way too intense for me and Holiday Heart was something that I decided to watch, but these two actors in this movie are AWESOME!!! Ms Woodard is so convincing as a full-blown, out-there-on-that-end drug user, then to see her as a ghost who needs to finish business on earth in Heart and Soul.......this woman is amazing! And Mr Rhames had me thinking he was indeed a drag queen outside of the movies! Dang, he's good!! One of the best scenes is in the drug store for Nikki and that's all I'm saying!! (Unfortunately, there are women who fit Ms Woodard's striking profile of the drug user and though some do end up as Wanda, many do make it through and become clean and go forward. I hope this was so for the lady who had to live the nightmare with her mother. (If this paragraph has to be removed because it's personal, I understand.))
