Based on a true story from 1955, when Emmett Till was murdered by racists. The horrffic scenes of the murder are not depicted yet the grief of a mother is and those scenes are riveting. Danielle Deadwyler’s performance is worthy of many acting awards. Definitely a tearjerker.
Well, I guess I had forgotten about the R rating since this is a Tyler Perry flick. Overall, quite raunchy and risqué yet I ended up really enjoying it. The first half hour seems to show the scenes that are in the trailers so I wasn’t impressed. It gets funnier and sexier and I liked it. A total chick-flick, girls night out, rom-com. I laughed out loud several times. Wait a couple of minutes for the outtake scenes. SPOILER: Chris Rock has a cameo scene.

I think this is the true depiction of one woman’s story on 9/11. Although there are a few great actors in this movie, I found it slow and not well acted. The intensity of the day is captured as I could only believe it was. I wouldn’t waste money at the theatre…wait for the free television airing.

Follow my movie reviews via FB M.U.S.E. Enthusiasts:
I like this genre of movie. There’s an ensemble cast that’s quite recognizable with a solid storyline (based on the book). Humor, romance and everything likeable about this movie set in the Appalachian Mountains of Virginia.

A great comedic ensemble cast is a winner for the film yet the storyline falls short. If you want to laugh, the go check this film out. I laughed out loud. This film is not for children for all the raunchy sex/nude scenes. Lots and cameo scenes with well known celebrities. There’s one surprise at the end…but I won’t give it away (it’s funny). A Love & Hip Hop star makes it to the big screen.
BTW, My top five: 1. Salt & Pepa 2. Heavey D 3. Run DMC 4. Whodini
5. Will Smith LOL, have fun selecting your top five.
NOTE: I have two ratings for this film
4 stars for the comedy; 2.5 stars for the storyline
R 102 min – Comedy
