    It was great. It had a wonderful heartfelt story for each of thevcharacters. It’ll make you tear up if you truly have a heart. It’s not a movie specifically for a “black” audience, everyone will like it. Go see it!

    Hmm, that’s interesting… I didn’t plan on seeing it because the commercials for it made it look like a bunch of 40-somethings in a cabin randomly hooking up with each other, ya know it seemed pretty sexual. But if it’s more than that, maybe I’ll check it out.

    I haven’t been to the movies in a long time but I made it a point to see this movie and I was not disappointed. It was a great mixture of emotions. It had me crying one minute then laughing the next. It was a great comedy to end my night. I would recommend the movie to others who like comedy as it was a great movie.
