    This is literally the best movie I have ever seen. I'm not just saying this because I'm obsessed. It has everything - best director, BEST cast!! I mean, Michelle Pfeiffer?! John Travolta?! Queen Latifah?! Nikki Blonskly gets 5,000,000 stars from me. She was new and acted like she was a senior in actress years! I'm not sure if I can fit everything I love about this movie. Just go buy the DVD and you won't be disappointed.
