Personal Quotes (1)

Set It Off was the little movie that could. That's the way I look at it. It was about four girls robbing a bank, which a lot of people thought, "Well, this could be a comedy. What is this really, really going to be about?" But I commend the director, F. Gary Gray, and the actresses. We sat down and took this little independent script that was really kind of poorly written, and shaped it and formed it and loved it and created a cult classic. I can't tell you how many people walk up to me today and say, "That Set It Off, I can sit down and watch it over and over. I know the movie's 10 years old, but I just love it. I still cry. I still feel you guys.
