I just got through seeing this film......
28 March 2007 | by bradpittsbodyguardSee all my reviews

I actually have to say this film didn't do it for me!!! Hands down Della Reese had to have been the funniest in the movie but she had such a small role. There were a lot of flaws in the continuity....some of the time frames just didn't match up with background. Sharon Stone's character was extremely funny at the beginning but it wore off really fast as it started to get very annoying. There were a couple of parts where they could have cut out and I am thinking WHAT THE HECK IS THIS ANYWAY....they must be related to either the director or the crew somehow to get them a small part but towards the end these two characters kept popping up and its like ENOUGH ALREADY....these characters did not go with this movie whatsoever...they had to be written in at the last minute.

But I have to say the concept was very original but needed some extreme help!!!!!! I say go directly to cable.....not wide screen theater material....which is very said because I love Sharon Stone and Whoopi!! Not trying to be cruel but I just don't see this making harding any money financially.
