A humorous way to accept aging.....
20 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is absolutely hilarious and provides a in-dept view of the emotional and personal crisis that everyone experiences as they grow older. It's characters cover a wide spectrum of personalities and careers that most of us can relate too. Often times our expectations of the future are never realize when we get to "our future". Accepting one's stage in life is a really emotional crisis, especially when it falls short of what we thought we would be doing or would have accomplished at certain stages in life. All this while laughing heartily at Tracy Morgan and Allen Payne, Debbie DeSouza, Erika Alexander, Kadeem Hardison, etc. Excellent movie and aside from one mature sexual scene involving Tracy Morgan(which was actually more comedic in nature) it is free of the usual over-the-top sexual content and lustful behaviors that generally describe young adults.
