Quotes

Candace: I'm just saying, Jordan's good people, you should get to know her.
Robyn: What's to know? She's career-obsessed and lives on her BlackBerry.
Candace: True, but she's not some ideal from a piece of fiction. Now, her man, on the other hand, is iconic. Mmm. If I went that way, that's what I'd get. A tall, vanilla swagger latte. I like, I like, I like.

Loved It
4 April 2014 | by (Raleigh, North Carolina) – See all my reviews

This was past my expectations! Never had a moment of let down during the entire movie. I was entertained throughout. I laughed, cried, thought and smiled so much I watched it 5 times already. Excellent production. I watched the first movie at least 100 times and this one will probably end up the same for me. I am looking forward to a follow- up to this soon. This is when you know a movie is well made, when you want more at the end. The cast was beautiful and did an amazing job and the soundtrack was great also. I love the fact that not all directors disappoint when it comes to casting and directing something worth watching on the big screen. We need more African American films like this one.
