Great love story!
8 March 2007 | by bless1See all my reviews

This is a good movie. As always Allen Payne always does a good job. This movie will draw you in and keep you trying to figure out how the "problem" happened. There are some funny parts but the best part is the ending. If you really pay attention the lines of the characters of Payne and Neal you will probably figure out the ending. Neal is so hot in this movie, its good to see her back in movies again. By the way Allen Payne can play some ball, check him out in the movie Crossover, now on DVD. There are some well known actors in this movie besides Payne and Neal. There the guy who plays the character Esqire in the movie ATL(he also stars in Idlewild), and one of my favorites Anthony "Treach" Criss, Traci Cherelle Jones(Baby Boy-Yvettes homegirl.
