The fact that the film has had such a lasting impact,... proves that the film spoke to its audience.
July 21, 2009
A string of hugely unfunny shenanigans ensue.
July 21, 2009
t's a celebration of bonds that are thicker than blood and demonstrates above all that fame-and-fortune fantasies can blur divisions of race and class as persuasively as they can exaggerate them.
April 26, 2006
Formulaic and distastefully fake, Townsend's modern fairy tale unsuccessfuly tries to combine the premise of Pretty Woman with the formats of the fish-out-of-water and culture-collision.

You can see how the black, modern-day Pygmalion-type story could work, just, but not with this heap of cabbage leaves for a script, and not with such desperately goofy acting from Berry and Desselle.
April 9, 2005
The story offers nothing original.
June 24, 2003
Not a great example of Halle Berry's talent.
| Original Score: 2/5
November 27, 2002
Apallingly bad. Robert Townsend's attempt at satirizing black culture is far off the mark.

Bad, amateur, poor and silly.

It's good for a half-hour of humor before the fun starts to dissolve.

Paying movie-goers deserve more, especially from someone who has previously shown signs of genuine comic aptitude.

January 1, 2000
Jaw-droppingly bad, a movie so misconceived I wonder why anyone involved wanted to make it.

A very funny movie.
January 1, 2000
It's bad, real bad, with frequently excruciating dialogue, often bewildering storytelling and a denouement actually drowned out by incidental music, that makes for a painful and staggeringly inept movie.

January 1, 2000
Left with nothing to do but vamp, Berry, Desselle and even the veteran Landau have little choice but to overact, trying to create explosions where there is no dynamite.

January 1, 2000
A horribly failed satire that should be avoided by all.

January 1, 2000
Robert Townsend's career continues its ongoing descent with this ludicrously awful culture-clash comedy.

January 1, 2000
Badly timed sight gags, weak one-liners, incessant music videos and sloppy sentiment are the order of the day. The stars throw themselves into it, but to no avail.

It's the kind of movie they don't make anymore -- and when they did, it was at the bottom of the bill after onscreen ads for local merchants.

They both do good work, but it's Desselle who steals the film and grabs the major laughs.
