Great Movie!!!!!!!
22 December 1998 | by gr-2See all my reviews

A very hip urban flick. It has a great storyline and brings up many important issues such as love, marriage, parenting, employment, and even stardom. Also dealing with friends, neighbors, and family that mean you no good. This movie made me laugh and cry. Overall an excellent movie.
