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

Producers wanted the slang that was spoken in the movie to be current and relevant to the time period in which the movie was released. This proved to be difficult as words take on different meaning to become Ebonics almost everyday. (Whatever words they used during filming might not have been in circulation by the time the film was released.) In order to play it safe, some of the Ebonics spoken in the movie was made up by the actors on the spot. See more »

I loved this movie!It was so funny I broke out in laughter six or seven times through the movie.Steve Martin's wise cracks keep the movie entertaining,and the acting and plot are great.I enjoyed this movie alot.Queen Latifah is great with her tough biker chick role,beating up women AND men that give her a hard time.I hope black people did'nt take offense to this movie,because in a way it mocked black people.It's just a very funny enjoyable movie,not to be taken seriously or offensive.I loved every minute of it!
