Terrance Howard was his normal, smoking self (note to Terrance: It's NOT a prop it's just NASTY!), Sanaa Lathan was a not-so-glowing mother-to-be, Nia Long is dazzling as usual, Monica Calhoun is eye candy, even as a mother to 4 kids and ill, Regina Hall plays a believable ex-stripper, and Melissa De Sousa seems born to play a "Housewife of Westchester". The cast is interesting enough to want to see what happens if you suspend the belief that no way would they be friends for real!
I HAD to look back and find out if my memory is swiss-cheesed or not.
Anyway, the movie moves along in the journey of the book's revelation - they are all in it and not portrayed in ways they approve. No one seems to appreciate the explanation of the so-called fictitious characters and a bomb goes off when his best friend figures out his bride-to-be is not as pure as he thought. When I returned to this movie a second time, it wasn't as bad as I remember but I still wouldn't rate it as a must-see, unless you wanted to watch the sequel.
The biggest test, of course, as they set it up for a Part 3, did you WANT to see it? I can say I do and will.
