      Audience Member Great movie. I wish they would do more like this. Funny. I never saw a single promotional ad for this movie. I just stumbled upon it. I saw Isaiah Washington's and Nicole Ari Parker's names when I was searching for something to watch. Really liked it. --Valerie Rose Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Audience Member This has the feel of a TV movie, but was still good. About black people from all walks of life struggling to find their place in the world. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Audience Member this movie was excellent... wonderful acting, great social commentary, well expressed story... not too heavy/preachy.. ntot too light and fluffy - a powerful message.. a beautifully written and executed tale...
