Absolutely, Unequivocally Horrible!
30 January 2018 | by jasheemwSee all my reviews

Jasheem Wilson Jasheem Wilson 1 day ago I am upset and slightly insulted as an African American living with a Mental Disorder. This was not a good nor accurate portrayal of the struggles one goes through. I haven't read the book but if the book is anything like this movie, this straight, it was bad. Bad everything, bad storyline, bad acting which I am shocked with who was in this. That fake suicide attempt when she was in the bath tube trying to drown herself??????? Like really? Mentally disturbed people are not that mentally disturbed. Also, Kyla as much as I love her did not research the role and did it showed and came off horrible. Kellita Smith's acting was everywhere and after her character's personality changed in the middle of the movie, I'm not too sure the bad acting was her fault. In the first half of the movie, she sounds drunk as she tries to adopt a sophisticated way of speaking? Idk. But then Kyla Pratt starts speaking like she's drunk. It was like every scene was a sound check. Gavin Houston, he is always gonna be Jeffery from the haves and have-nots to me. His characters seem to all be the same with no real depth, he plays them all the same. In here it was a little much.This movie is weighed down with a lot of lengthy monologues and at times it seems as if the characters are just talking at one another. Kyla Pratt will say something and the reaction from Gavin Houston, it just made no sense. It had nothing to do what she was saying. It was as if they'd forgotten they're lines and were saying the ones they did remember and the conversation was picked up. Now, Lifetime has a certain brand and a lot of times they stuff looks cheese but, they at least be good. This was just horrible. And the longer I watched the more questions I had. The only saving grace is they gave us some vague information on mental health and the black community. I recommend you just google mental health in the black community so you don't have to waste an hour and a half of your life like I did. And if you have a mental health disorder, I don't recommend watching this, it might send you into a manic state like it did me. I stopped everything I was doing to write this review.You've been warned.
