Where'd you get that money?
Gina, you know I don't do like that. But if a guy wants to pay my bills, I'ma let him pay my bills.
You know what, you need to shut up because you're sounding really stupid right now. You are lazy, you're wasting your life and you're wasting my time. Why don't you take your money to go buy a clue?

This amusing little movie appeals to a wide range with its comfortable humor, racy but utterly inoffensive conversation, and its roots in Disney-style family values (but for the real world). Queen Latifah does a relaxed and amiable job of tying the film together, and the ensemble cast is sweet and funny. I was impressed with Alicia Silverstone's turn as a geeky little white country girl--it's the first time she hasn't been playing off a well-to-do type and she carries it off. We had a nice relaxing time of it while we were watching, and half an hour later I've forgotten most of it--but that's just fine. Means I can pop it in the DVD player later on, enjoy it, and not remember a word.
