i thought the film was excellent
19 March 2004 | by becky_callabySee all my reviews

i thought the flim was excellent nick cannon played the part wonderfully but i though Christina was rubbish and annoying i still though the film was great and cant wait to buy it so i can watch it again. i thought nick cannon looked looked very good looking and should defintly star in some films in the united kingdom because its a shame having to wait so long. also the soundtrack was very good and i will also be purchsing that. the best thing about the movie was there were a lot of intresting twists that allways kept me into the movie and so i never got bored i think this is one of nicks best films even though i did enjoy drum line very much. i think a lot of people will enjoy this movie
