Great movie!
15 November 2014 | by (Manhattan Beach, CA) – See all my reviews

My husband and I had a date night last night ( dinner and a movie). I thought he may think this was a "girlie" movie because he normally likes action-packed movies or serious dramas! Surprisingly, we both were fully engaged and thought it was a very good movie! I loved "Love and Basketball" which was great for Sanaa and Omar at that time! This brought us Gugu and Nate, some new great actors mixed with old favorites ( Minnie Driver and Danny Glover). I'm glad to see good wholesome movies that have happy endings.

The theater was packed with people from all different ages and races. Everyone could relate!

We loved it! Great love story! A must see!
