Latest Review Additions:
The Year of the Yao Review (in Film )
The Year of the Yao is a tremendously entertaining film. It’s easily the best basketball film I’ve seen in years.

Beauty Shop Review (in Film )
While some of the jokes take some time to get a chuckle, Latifah and the cast more than make up for it by bringing in their own comedic style and making the film enjoyable and worthy of being a spinoff.

Guess Who Review (in Film )
Times have definitely changed because Ashton Kutcher is no Sidney Poitier, but Bernie Mac pretty much holds the film and the politics together in this mildly entertaining film.

Miss Congeniality 2 Review (in Film )
With her next sequel, Miss Congeniality 2: Armed and Fabulous, not only is it worse than "Speed 2", but it lacks the spark and charm that made the original cute and fun to enjoy.

Hostage Review (in Film )
Negotiate your way to this film in the perfect non-hostage venue: your house.

Diary of a Mad Black Woman Review (in Film )
The balance of comedy and drama is wildly uneven in this film, but fans of the play will come out in droves to see Madea on the big screen.
