The movie has great acting regarding Katt and Charles Utes. Dutton, good script, lots of heart, its very engaging, and above all it triggers an emotional association. Katt Williams can unquestionably do drama. He pulled off the right amount of funny and real for a Black Republican. Charles S. Dutton aka Roc does it again. He makes you giggle, cheer and fall in love considering the story. I’m growing tired regarding my Black Movies being forced to be dumbed down in order to be entertaining. So I had very low expectations, because the lack regarding advertising, had me flying shades. I almost thought this became gonna be the B-Level one step up from stage play. So glad to become wrong! Great camera work and flow from the story. I can guess the key reason why its not being publicized – ITS NOT PERTAINING TO “EVERYBODY”, BUT FOR WHO ITS FOR… ITS GREAT!!! I’m telling everybody to view this movie. I love the energy i always felt amongst the masses as we exited the theater – It’s really a feeling that I would not soon forget:).
