This is a really great movie with the lot of beautiful people in it
I just returned home from seeing this movie. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was everything that a movie is supposed to be. The characters have multiple layers, the storyline has multiple things going on and visually it's lovely. The music in this movie was great. I can't wait to get the soundtrack. But the actors in it were stellar. Terrence Howard was in his prime. He was just so funny and Added perfect humor during the right moments. Beautiful Morris Chestnut was intense and Nia Long is everything. Taye Diggs is the wonderful actor that he always is. I could go on and on about all of the actors in this movie especially the children. They were all so beautiful and so talented. It's a must see.
