An Improbable Love Story that'll Tickle Your Funny-Bone & Brighten Your Day !
24 February 2020 | by timodoSee all my reviews

Lynne Newton Stars as 'Faustina Jaxx' , a Black Wanna-be-Rapper from Los Angeles with one-foot on Wall Street & Her Heart Torn Between Her Homies & 'Lucrative Street' , a Hugely Successful Wall Street Mogul , Portrayed by Mike Breyer . As Preposterous as this may seem , these two Fabulous Actors work together like an Old Vaudeville Team , with Perfect Timing & Precision Preciseness . They Practically Finish Each Others Sentences . Faustina's Homies are Lovely Blaise Brooks as the Level-Headed Psychic 'ImUnique Jenkins' & Super-Shapely Erica McLean as the Stripper & possible Coke-Dealer 'Ione Stone' . Ms. Jaxx's Recording Management Crew is more than ably manned by DH Lewis as 'Jayden Storm' , Jacqueline Murphy as 'Scarlett Powers' , & David Terrell as 'Trombonz' . Faustina's Back-up Singers are lead by that Amazingly Talented Red-Haired Beauty Adra Janean Fenstermaker as the Coke-Snortin' , Street-Tough , Money-Hungry but Angel-Voiced 'Ventique' ! Next there's Jorge Preciado as 'Curious Judas' , Jenny Koh as that Malaysian Rapper 'Sisash' , & those two Persian Sistas , Maggie Parto as 'Udyssey' & Shari Vasseghi as 'Prekascious' . Now I'm not at all into Rap Music ; But I LOVE "Pay Day Loan" , Performed by this Totally Talented Crew ! The Wall Street Crew Consists of Paul Hamel as 'Affluent Street' , the Top-Dawg & Father of Lucrative , & Wonnie Short as 'Wonnie' . Now , Who would Name their Kid Wonnie ? Dwight Turner gives a Remarkable Performance as 'Alexander Sly' , who is Impossible to Describe in a Short Review , so You better Watch for YourSelf . There's even an Embittered Gangster here , named 'Sammy Crate' Played Viciously by Craig Zucchero ; But No Nudity or Sex except possibly a Breast-Feeding Piñata ! Now Don't Delay ! Don't Miss "PAY DAY ! Just Watch that Hit "GRADATION" !
