Love this movie!, 14 April 2014
Author: EmmaNelly from United States

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

This movie was a total gem! I had not heard of it until I found it on Netflix and randomly decided to watch because of Christian KEYES!!! I also like Essence. She plays characters that are down to earth and easy to connect with. I did want to scream at her family a few times but overall I was rooting for all of the characters. This is a movie that I can totally watch again. Did I mention a shirtless Christian Keyes? This story is super cute and does not disappoint. I love how they got together in the end. I almost cried tears of joy. Another cute story and another believable class of actors. I wish more people can enjoy the movie.
