Fantastic and classy movie
22 May 2009 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Fantastic and classy movie

This was a movie that was everything that movies like Soul Plane wasn't. Respectful, funny and clean. Well done with a touching love story. I found the acting was very well done with leads working extremely well together. Great cast, like Golden Brooks, Hill Harper, Melissa De Sousa, Deborah Cox, Mel Jackson and Darrin Dewitt Henson, The camera work was like wise well done and the editing masterfully done. Thinking back over it I found no scene that would make me embarrassed to bring my family to see it. It was truly a movie that did justice to the black entertainment industry.

Have a great Life, Everyone!!!
