The fact that the film has had such a lasting impact,... proves that the film spoke to its audience.

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.

July 21, 2009 | Full Review…

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.

A very funny movie.

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