Corrina, Corrina - BRAVO
15 May 2005 | by See all my reviews

I loved this movie. The acting was excellent, especially the three main stars, Whoopie, Ray and Tina, but the subject matter was handled well too. I think this movie shows that love has no color or financial restraints - it's about compassion, understanding, honesty, and companionship. I, too, have watched it again and again and still love it as much as the first time. And yes, Ray Liotta can act in just about any type of picture. I first saw Ray on soaps way back when and he has developed into one of my favorite actors. If he's in a picture, I want to see what he does with the role. Much like Don Cheadle. Massive talents that go largely unnoticed. And Ray's parents in the movie were excellent as well. It's just such a charming picture with strong, understated performances. I can't recommend it highly enough.
