User Reviews

Perfect example of why Hollywood should not be profitable!
24 April 2009 | by (Palm Springs, CA) – See all my reviews

Total waste of time and money. How do you get your money back? It is not only trite but was only made because of the race issue. It was clearly a movie that was not performed as a way to improve the public interest in attending movies or to provide relevant entertainment but was made in an attempt to create paying customers wanting to see a crazy white woman chasing an unappealing black man. Beyonce is not an actress but chosen for the role for her attractiveness and name power. I feel that a film of this caliber will find it's way to the cut rate DVD movie bin at the local discount store and not improve sales at that location.
