Naomi's Dinner Party Disaster!
8 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When Naomi and Vint come home from a dinner at one of her friends' home, she is upset because she can't invite her friends to have dinner at her home. Well, she gets Mama to make the dinner and pays for a night out at the movies with Fran and the kids. Of course, Fran wants to see Gandhi while Mama wants to see E.T. All is going to plan when Mama's back goes out. She can't move and remains on the living room floor when the guests arrive. Only two couples who make bad jokes and help Mama eat the home-cooked dinner. Of course, Naomi sees this event as impending disaster of a party. Of course with Mama on the floor with her back out, the two couples are obviously uncomfortable and Mama makes some wicked comments regarding Needa who is bit of a snob. There is Marsue played by Micole Mercurio, what a stage name. Anyway sometimes things doesn't go according to plan.
