I loved this movie.
24 April 2015 | by fishholeSee all my reviews

This was A good fun movie, my friends had movie night. This was All our Favorite Picture of the night. Would LOVE to see it again. Where Can I get a Copy on DVD or Download from somewhere.... I played an Extra as one of the Waitresses. My Grandchildren think I'm Famous because I was in a Movie with Dyan Cannon and Phylicia Rashad. Although not Famous I was Proud be cause SHE, Dyan Cannon is one of My Favorite actresses. I think this was with a Fun Plot, A great family movie, and a great Cast and setting. Meeting ALL the Cast was a Fun and Exciting few days as well as the After Party. Watching a MOVIE in the making was a Highlight in MY Life. I think it is past due for a Rerun. Please let a Younger generation watch this Deserving Movie.!
