As usual our group of four misfits finds themselves swimming in drama filled situations that bring big laughs. It's clear that Corey still has secrets to hide; as usual Omar seems oblivious to what's happening around him.
After ten years, Sheldon returns from New York City to Paris, Georgia. His mother Evelyn, a laundress who is stubborn, ornery, opinionated, mean-spirited, insulting, and inflexible, has sent a ten-year-old boy who says he's Sheldon's son up to see Sheldon. Sheldon comes home to straighten things out. Old arguments flare up - between mother and son and between brothers. Sheldon wants no part of fatherhood or family. Then, someone else from New York shows up at Evelyn's door, bringing a new set of challenges. Will this family ever stop airing its dirty laundry? And what of Sheldon: where is his pride? Can he, in the words of James Baldwin, go where his blood beats and live the life he has? Written by
Now yall know ya girl is addicted to Black movies. I mean...after watching mainstream television I just NEED to see some Black people doing some thangs ya know?
Well...I rented this movie I thought it was going to be same old same old.
Ohmygoodness! THESE CHARACTERS WERE SOOOOOOO WELL DEVELOPED and the story line was so good. This was SUCH a believable movie and all of the dialog was SO REAL! SO REAL!
Wow...I was soooooooooooooo impressed with how they handled such sensitive topics. LOVED IT!
I would give this movie a solid 7 and only because of some really campy dialog about the son's mother. It was very, VERY awkward to me.
Loretta Divine? I think this was the best role I've seen her in since she was strutting her stuff talking bout "Would you like to have dinner with us tonight? It's just leftovers. Collard greens and corn bread, some candied yams, a little potato salad, fried chicken, peach cobbler and a few slices of ham."
This was a GOOD role for her. LOVE YOU GIRL! Rockmond Dunbar, Terri Vaughn and Maurice Jamal did a good job too. Jennifer Lewis? She played the same role she always plays. Bless everybody's heart involved.
If you have an opportunity...I say rent this movie. It was good. Not for the kids though. Just for you. :)
