funniest movie
22 April 2004 | by LizaSnyderFanSee all my reviews

I saw this movie and being a fan of Nia, I knew it'd be a great and hilarious movie, Not only is she a great talented funny actress, but a great writer, that knows comedy! I highly recommend people to go see this movie for a great laugh! Nia and Toni have AMAZING voices!!! You don't see much of the brother wanting to get to know his brother and wanting to be ok with what he does. She really put a good lesson in the movie, being love yourself, and respect others. Showing women and young girls in this world today that you don't need to throw up to be skinny, eat what you want, and love that body, b/c it's the only one you have. Movies don't show much about that. This was definately something different!
