Quotes

Shaniqua Summers Wells: I wasn't out of the house two hours before my mother turned my room into a den. She calls it a "den"; I call it a "shrine to her ego". When I was growing up, my mother's priorities were her career, her makeup, her hair, and then, her children, and that's the best thing I can say about her. To be fair, she did think about our hair and makeup. I got my first wig at age three. How many kids get that?

What A Great Movie!
31 July 2005 | by See all my reviews

I rented this movie with my best friend last year. We had no idea what to expect. This movie had us laughing so hard, we watched it three times in a row and then we had everyone we knew watching it.I'm excited to know its on DVD now and just ordered it. I don't know why everyones so harsh about the ending of the movie, I think its an alright ending.No matter what, this movie is awesome! Everyone should see this movie at least once. This movie should definitely become a cult classic. I cant wait to see this movie again, it has been quite a while. Anyone who hasn't seen this movie, you need to go out and rent it. Yield Yield Yield before you hit me with your love...LOL sorry I'm rambling, just have to have ten lines in at least to post a comment.
