Storyline

A single mother determined to make it as a singer puts together an all girl reggae group named Neeta, Sweeta, & Nastie with her friends. Living in a housing project with little support, the odds are obviously against her. Emotionally she struggles too as she learns at her mother's death that her actual mother is the woman she had thought was her older sister. With the help of a female agent, the group starts to get some exposure and rises above their setting. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

Probably the worst movie I have ever seen
15 December 2005 | by macp3See all my reviews

Reading the reviews for another movie I found people calling it (that movie) the 'worst film ever made'. Whilst I disagreed with them, it did inspire me to write a quick review (or perhaps a warning?) about the film that I do view as the worst that I have ever seen, namely Babymother. The acting is useless, the plot weak, the dialogue terrible and the climax (lets all do a rap about being single mothers) absolutely cringe-worthy. Had it not been for my then girlfriend wanting to stay until the end 'in case it got any better' I would have left half way through this absolute disaster of a film.

Do yourself a favour and watch something - indeed anything - else instead. I'm sure that you'll prefer it.
