11 February 2019 | by simoncrunchSee all my reviews

This should be called "horny people having kids with no adult plans"

I lived in Jamaica, "blood clot"..every 2nd word?

Yeah, hire an American has-been millionaire to do a painful interpretation of Jamaician Patois.....everybody runs to see anything with "Busta Rhymes" in it.

I worked for Gregory Isaac, I saw and experienced Jamaica...this is a nonsensical, vanity project.

Could have shown respect for the country, instead it was a ridiculous rip off of dirty dancing.
