This was a great movie!, 7 May 2011
Author: stephanie-thornton1-48-682478 from america

Great movie!!! My family and I enjoyed every minute of the movie. The storyline was great and so was the cast. It was wonderful how Bishop Jakes was able to bring together a cast with such a wide range of personalities and mesh them together into a seamless masterpiece. Veteran actors like Bassett, Devine, and Mitchell brought depth to the movie, while others like Epps,Smith, and Patton brought fun and freshness. If I had to define the type of movie this was, I'd say it was a comedy with a twist;a twist of romance and drama. And although it was great to laugh, I think the overarching message that LOVE prevails had the most impact.
