    Good Will Hunting? Really? I seriously doubt this film will contain any dialogue that comes close to this scene: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QnZ0Y4rvz6Ee

    Also, I hate it when people describe their films as "a certain film" meets "another film" or "so and so film" for the new generation or the black "so and so movie". Why dont I just watch the original movies.? Give me something fresh! Wheres your creativity? If you have nothing new to tell then dont tell me a story, dont make a movie! I kinda understand why people do it - maybe they think theyll draw the same audience as the reference movie. But I can do without it.

    Christian Keyes a screenwriter? Who knew... Hopefully he has a fresh take on movies and creativity. Basketball player and single mother though... Anyway Im impressed that hes making his own projects. I dunno about his acting but he looks great, and seems charming so that should play out well for him.

    Although I saw Christian Keyes in Dysfunctional Friends, when I saw his face I thought of Tyler Perry. I was first introduced to his acting through a few of his productions. The man can act and he can sing. He has a very good voice. Vanessa, you should have asked him to hit a few notes. Speaking of singers, I did not know LeToya Luckett was part of Destiny's Child (I googled her while reading this post). I remember watching her in The Preacher's Kid, and thinking, "where do they get these young black actresses who can act and sing?". Little did I know she has been paying her dues for quite some time. Show business is a rough business. That reminds me, in the movie "Preacher's Kid" I remember feeling all sorry for her character. Po young girl being abused and used. I thought she was around 19-20 years old. LeToya is in her thirties. Well Vanessa, you've done it again. You brought me something new.

    So glad to see LeToya Luckett break through the shadows cast by Destiny's Child (and Matthew Knowles). I wish her continued success.
