Cute
28 February 2003 | by QueenMakeda84See all my reviews

Besides the fact that I'm not all too fond of Megan Goode, the movie was fine. The acting seemed a little forced on the sisters' parts like they wanted more screen time. Gabby Union is finally coming into her own from being in the background of films so long. I'm proud of her. She was a little over zealous in tyring to be hard and cold, but altogether cemented the part. LL was ok, but it's hard to swallow the acting thing with him. I keep expecting him to break into one of his romantic rapping ballads. The other gentlemen were funny. Funny how Gabby Union was in Ten Things I Hate About You, and now she's in something similar as the lead. However, this is more serious in a sense and relative to other audiences. Not too bad. Cute movie.
