Oh my goodness I laughed my head off!
26 November 2012 | by exstkbmeSee all my reviews

It was hilarious! It is so not what most people would expect if they haven't seen it. It is NOT serious, and all the factions are part of the humor: the constant monotonous melody, sing- song-narrative, the crazy A.. twists and turns, the crazy ridiculous rhymes that didn't always work. It so plays on the crazy story R&B songs about (Lord help me, "ig'nant" drama that a lot of low class nuts bandy about all the time. What can I say I know people who come up with these crazy story lines in their real life! I am still laughing about the fact it was actually produced. Think "Married With Children" on crack crazy only with the black community. The interweaving was actually quite smart if you can just get past the monotonous typical story/ballad melody. Since it's all comedy no one should take offense from it. It's in the vein of "Mary Harman" and "Soap" it's over the top crazy humor, but the point overall is something to think about if you really want to take it seriously--think before you have an affair....you never know where that affair's been, can I get an "Amen?!!!" ha ha ha. Let me put this waiver out there though, this does not represent all African Americans/Black people, so if you don't know this...the humor will likely be lost and reduce to something racist. I think R. Kelly deserves some kudos for putting this together with excellent acting talent! If you watch the Browns, please this can't possibly offend you!
