Trivia

Actor Tone Bell told the podcast "Keith and the Girl" that after filming he was forced to undergo surgery to resolve a partial retina detachment. Producers contacted him for reshoots in early 2019 but because of his recent surgery he was unable to fly to the set. So instead, he took a train three-and-a-half days to Atlanta to appear in his scenes. See more »

If The Trailer Made You Laugh, So Will The Movie
12 April 2019 | by JERIC0777See all my reviews

This won't be an in depth review. This is in case people are judging by the currently low stars. I'm wondering if those those people actually saw the movie because I laughed the whole time, as did all the other people in the crowded theater i was in.

Yeah, there's been other movies with similar plots, but this was a fresh and modern take without being over the top pc like so much of what comes out of Hollywood today. Rather than be lectured by a movie, I want to take a break from my own responsibilities, be entertained,and in this case laugh. This did that.

I was incredibly impressed by Marsai Martin. I was very surprised at how seamlessly she stepped into the grown character and made it feel like I was really watching the mini version of the character I'd just seen Regina Hall playing.

If you're debating, just go see it.
