The movie was, in my opinion, quite good. Some of it even hit close to home. The movie is loved and cherished very much by my Wife & by Wife I mean Life. The sound track was great, but only one song in particular caught my attention, and brought tears to my eyes, "Missing You". There are a lot of songs out there that sing about a lost love ones, close friends, or spouse's, well you get the point. To me, and I have played a lot of songs like this, but never have I played one that has hit the target each and every time, as I am a DJ. Most people don't know what they want to hear when the have lost someone. They dedicate songs or sing songs that they think is the right one at the time, but when they hear this one, it says everything that they can't, but want to, all within 6 minutes. Nine times out of Ten, I am always thanked in the highest regards, and that Tenth person, well their just to overcome to say anything. The expression on their face says it all, and that is something you can't put a price on. I just hope that if I ever need to hear this song to remind me of the good times, bad times, sad times, & happy times that they think enough to play this song for me to get me through, because when that day comes, I'll need it and every friend I have by my side..................................
I LIKE THIS MOVIE BECAUSE IT IS A ACTION MOVIE, IT IS ABOUT FOUR BLACK FEMALES BEING FED UP WITH THEIR LIVING CONDITIONS AND DECIDED TO CHANGE IT BUT DIDN'T THINK ABOUT THE CONSEQUENCES. I LAUGHED AND CRIED WITH THE CHARACTERS, I FELT THE PAIN THEY FELT AND WAS DRAWN TO THIS MOVIE. I FIRST SAW THIS MOVIE AT THE THEATER AND WANTED IT FOR MYSELF FOR KEEPS. I LOVE ALL THE CHARACTERS IN THIS MOVIE AND THE BLACK FEMALES ARE SOME OF MY FAVORITE ACTRESSES, I LOVE QUEEN LATIFAH , VIVICA FOX, AND JADA PINKETT-SMITH VERY MUCH AND THEY HAD A LOT TO DO WITH WHY I BOUGHT THIS MOVIE. IT WAS SUCH AND INTENSE AND EMOTIONAL MOVIE AND IT SHOWED WHAT HAPPENS TO PEOPLE WHEN THEY BECOME DESPERATE FOR MONEY AND DON'T THINK ABOUT THE CONSEQUENCES OF THEIR ACTIONS. I REMEMBER THE ACTOR THAT WAS JADA PINKETT-SMITH BOYFRIEND IN THE MOVIE TOLD HER MONEY SHOULD NEVER COME BEFORE FRIENDS, BECAUSE TRUE FRIENDS WILL LAST A LIFETIME AND CANNOT BE REPLACED AND SHE STILL WENT AHEAD WITH THE BANK ROBBERY AND LOST ALL OF HER GIRLFRIENDS FOR THE MONEY. I LOVED THE MOVIE BUT WISH IT HAD ENDED DIFFERENTLY.
this is truly the best urban film next to boyz n the hood, menace II society.etc
Its based on 4 friends (all female) whose lives intertwine and forces them into their fate. really "hood" this movie and its from a famles propective. good buy if you enjoy gansta music,guns and arm robberiez. action is 10/10 for an urban flick.
Stony, Cleo, Tisean and Frankie have been through a lot together while growing up in the projects of Los Angeles. They've been scammed by sleazy employers, slammed by heartless boyfriends, and slapped around by neighborhood cops. No matter how tough the going got--when one found herself in trouble, she had three life-long friends backing her up. Now comes the ultimate test. A tragic chain of events has brought these inseparable companions closer than ever. I was completely blown away by this movie. It was so breath-taking in its pace, the performances and the action, but it was also extremely moving.
I loved this movie when I was young, and after not watching it for over 5 years I decided to purchase it on DVD. Great move on my part, the movie is still as good as I remember it and feels even better watching it on DVD. Queen Latifah and the rest of the cast do an excellent job in portraying their characters and each of their different lifestyles. Will watch over and over again!
