This film is my all time favourite. I first saw it in the cinema (twice) when it came out, but I haven't seen it for a few years as I only have it on video. So pleased to see it here on dvd. It manages to be hilariously funny whilst dealing with difficult issues and takes you on a real emotional rollercoaster. Love, love, love this film!
I've watched this film so many times now, the 2 boy leads are brilliant, Linda Henry is fantastic as the hard-as-nails but sensitive mum, but to me the real star is Tameka Empson. She is superb as the loopy Mama Cass-a-holic neighbour Leah. You've got to watch this film just to see her, despite the contrived ending.
