Funny movie! Should have been at the big screen movie theaters.
1 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Jaleel is a wonderful, handsome romantic comedy lead. This movie was so enjoyable(especially on Thanksgiving Day, which is one of the big funny scenes), that my family and I watched it several times during the holiday, and cracked up. I know there are cuss words, "N" words, and all, but in the context of the material, it is familiar and just downright funny. As a matter of fact, this movie makes great entertainment when people come by and want to have a drink, popcorn, and laugh. The acting was great. The soundtrack is really "off the chain"... I loved it. Would like to purchase a CD with the music on it. It's all original music. The scene with Jaleel alone at the train station could really be a music video because the vocalist is hot. I think it's among some of the best work I've scene Clifton Powell do, and he and Ella Joyce have great chemistry. Ella seems to be the voice of calm and reason in this film and she is great also, along with Reynaldo Rey. It's great to see him in a film. I will watch everything this director does. I like his films. Who Made The Potatoe Salad is entertaining.
