    A movie that you feel, and with characters you grow to really care for. I understand why this has developed a cult following. It's kind of a '90s gem.

    Acceptable comedy that probably received good reviews for being an earnest effort by a first time director. Where did that director go by the way?

    Get Together. Fall Apart. Start Over.

    Finally. A film that features African Americans. Definitely goes against the everyday romance; love it.
