very well done!
29 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I thought this film was done very well. I enjoyed watching the development of the characters and experiencing with them all of some real life issues. I found myself laughing a lot throughout the film. I would definitely watch it again. Some of the language in the beginning was a bit strong but I enjoyed the characters so much it didn't seem to matter. I found myself sitting straight up at times not being able to keep my eyes off of the screen. I feel that this film will be very successful and I can tell that a lot of hard work was put into it. Kudos to writer Van Elder and all of the actors. It was great seeing Todd Bridges in his role of Carson...outstanding work. Also Ben Watkins and Laz Alonzo were just awesome, i didn't want to blink my eyes.. Ohh..and that sassy sexy Mrs. Jones, Lisa De Witt, I couldn't wait to see what she was going to do next. I just can't say enough about how much I enjoyed this film.
