Pleasantly surprised I enjoyed this and got bonus points for seeing with My Lady. Probably won't get full recognition it deserves but this movie definitely was worth seeing (even for this guy).
Very funny, great script, exceptional chemistry among all the stars. Often this doesn't come thru but all actors (male & female)represented very well. Great interface with New Orleans festival and makes you wonder were the scenes actually performed there or injected, lol.
Tiffany Haddish (Dina) stole the show and hopefully gets proper recognition.
Only warning is content definitely "R" rated so don't accept urge to bring younger audiences. Definitely adult content and adult humor.
