Mo' Money makes me Mo' Ready! To see it again!
24 February 2003 | by Brad_NuggetSee all my reviews

I was only 9 years old when the epic "Mo' Money" was released in theaters. Despite only staying in theaters for approximately 3 hours, I knew it was a movie that would stay in my heart for...more hours. Like 3+.

When Damon Wayans said, "Mo' Money, Mo' Money, Mo' Money," the world stopped turning; if only for a brief moment. All was good in the world, and life itself seemed brighter than ever.

If there was ever a second coming of Christ, Damon Wayans was his name. Thank you, Damon. You will always been my love.
