  • In style and structure, it mimics an old-style studio effort, a culture-clashing comedy of manners that's tinged with melodrama and filmed in a smart progression of medium shots. show more

  • This buoyant, multigenerational comedy that takes its title from the African American wedding ritual has other distinctions as well. It's relatively raunch-free, it has a sparkling cast that reunites "Waiting to Exhale" stars Angela Bassett and Loretta Devine as combative matriarchs, and it likes its characters well enough to forgive them their faults. show more

  • Director Salim Akil has found actors skillful enough to enhance Elizabeth Hunter and Arlene Gibbs' conventional screenplay. show more

    I loved this movie! It was not only a testament of love, ************* the truths in marriage. Sometimes people won’t get along with the bride/grooms family but they can come to a common ground that everyone will be respected. I watched it twice in the theatres and I rented it from Blockbuster because I’m so in love with it. Thankfully, I didn’t have to pay for it because I have the special Blockbuster promotion with DISH Network that allows me to use their service for three months without paying for it. Thank goodness that I have an employee account at DISH Network because I’m always finding out about special promotions and people can find out more information here http://bi
