L² Comment:
This is the last film Bernie Mac has existed before his passing in Aug 2008. The movie is very typical kinda black guy movie which talks about music and how their life. Overall is ok and the music is nice too... I love Jennifer Coolidge the most even though her appearance is kinda short...
