Nobody's Fool Reviews
hour in. I do not care to hear the "N" word being used by any race.
That's all i heard being used throughout the whole movie. And you get upset when other races say the word in everyday language.
This movie will not just be seen by black people, & i'm sure it will make alot of people uncomfortable viewing it.
With all of the racism being openly showed lately, the last thing we need to promote is the use of this word.
I am very disappointed in this movie.
Stereotype comedy with all the canned ready to

Huge production complex to work and produce
It´┐ 1/2 1/2(TM)s a reverse gender romantic comedy, it´┐ 1/2 1/2(TM)s terrible. This film should be missed by all.
When wild child Tanya (Tiffany Haddish) is released from prison after serving a 5 year sentence, she seeks out her uptight advertising honcho sister Danica (Tika Sumpter) to help get her back on track. Tanya moves in, and their polar opposite personalities soon collide with disastrous ´┐ 1/2 1/2" and often very funny ´┐ 1/2 1/2" results. But when Danica begins to reveal more details about her long distance boyfriend, her sister thinks she´┐ 1/2 1/2(TM)s being catfished and sets out to prove her mysterious dream man is a big phony.
The film is at its best when Haddish and Sumpter are together, playing off each other with a yin and yang balance of heart and humor. Haddish lights up every scene she´┐ 1/2 1/2(TM)s in (which isn´┐ 1/2 1/2(TM)t nearly enough), and delivers some of the film´┐ 1/2 1/2(TM)s funniest one-liners. Once the film quickly changes course into a by-the-book romantic comedy, it feels a little lost. And when it strays into straight drama, it really begins to drag.
I laughed a lot at the jokes, which are mostly terrific, and the expert line delivery from the entire cast. Whoopi Goldberg hilariously steals every scene she´┐ 1/2 1/2(TM)s in as a stoner mama, and the comedically talented Haddish delivers another strong dose of what she does best. It´┐ 1/2 1/2(TM)s a blast to see her doing more bawdy comedy a´┐ 1/2 1/2(TM)la ´┐ 1/2 1/2Girls Trip.´┐ 1/2 1/2´┐ 1/2┬? The supporting cast, including Omari Hardwick, and Amber Riley, are strong too. These are characters you´┐ 1/2 1/2(TM)d love to hang out with in real life.
It becomes obvious from the film´┐ 1/2 1/2(TM)s abrupt finale that Perry couldn´┐ 1/2 1/2(TM)t figure out how to end the story, but it doesn´┐ 1/2 1/2(TM)t matter much. This is a delightful romantic comedy with a few lively surprises and hearty laughs.
A SCREEN ZEALOTS REVIEW
Mr. Perry takes so many elements and begins to mash them into a confusing and ridiculous plot. We aren't given enough time with any of the characters and because of that I didn't care for any of them. I honestly think Tyler could have took one or two elements from his clearly first draft of the film and made a much better film. Instead of having a creepy barista and his alcoholism issues as a side story. He could have followed the relationship between Danica and Tanya and what makes them so different. He could have kept the catfish storyline, even though I think it's way outdated, and had Danica and Tanya go on this journey into finding out if Charlie was real together. That, in my opinion, would have made the cameo from Nev and Max more understandable. Possibly, Nev and Max don't want to help them because of Tanya being so forceful and making them uncomfortable. The movie also introduces us to something called The List that hold so much importance to Danica, but we never flesh that out to care. If we started the film with us being introduced to the list through the childhood of Tanya and Danica we would know the list is significant and not just thrown in. The film could have been a funny journey between two polar-opposite sisters and how one is ruled by this idea of finding love and the other just wanted to be accepted by her clearly more established sister.
Instead, we are given bad green screen, a film lacking of proper character development, and a sadly underused Whoopi Goldberg and misused Chris Rock. The film seemed to be edited so quickly, that even the opening credits are jarring. Each time I thought the film was finally coming to a conclusion, it was still going on. It was still dishing out material that should have been scrapped and making something that was of no importance the main subject of the film. Each character was becoming sillier and sillier and Tiffany Haddish, the person that pulled everyone to the theater, had disappeared. It was as if Tyler Perry just wanted to make a R-rated rom-com and didn't want to fully develop a beautiful and funny film. Something that could have steered away from the cliche narrative of needing love, of needing to be with someone. As a filmmaker and someone who genuinely enjoys a good comedy, I would avoid this film at all costs.
