Peter Sanderson is a divorced, straight-laced, uptight attorney who still loves his ex-wife and can't figure out what he did wrong to make her leave him. However, Peter's trying to move on, and he's smitten with a brainy, bombshell barrister he's been chatting with online. However, when she comes to his house for their first face-to-face, she isn't refined, isn't Ivy League, and isn't even a lawyer. Instead, it's Charlene, a prison escapee who's proclaiming her innocence and wants Peter to help her clear her name. But Peter wants nothing to do with her, prompting the loud and shocking Charlene to turn Peter's perfectly ordered life upside down, jeopardizing his effort to get back with his wife and won a billion dollar client.Written by

While it is nice to see Steve Martin rising briefly out of straight-to-video hell, and Queen Latifah is fab, this is nevertheless at best a mediocre comedy with only about one laugh every twenty minutes, and at worst a dire, dirty movie.
As for the whole racism thing (the movie was quite controversial in the States) it's hard to tell who's being targeted: Black people, or White People. Maybe it's all just a satire ... but the movie manages to offend both Whites and Blacks, and is probably best avoided.
