Woo it was funnnieeee!
9 December 2004 | by kittengirl_43See all my reviews

This movie was absolutely hilarious. Jada Pinkett Smith did a wonderful job and so did Tommy Davidson. It was funny the whole way through from beginning to end. Especially the part when woo and timothy were in the Italian restaurant! Woo is a beautiful woman who just wants to be free, and Timothy is a nerdy guy, with jerks as friends. Throughout the whole movie you'll see how they slowly come together and form a "special" kind of friendship. Ow, and there's a transvestite in the movie that's suppose to be one of Woo's really good friends. She's very, very funny. And so is Woo's cousn who goes out Lenny, whose Dave Chappelle. I recommend this movie to everyone who likes a good laugh.
