    A movie discussed in Willow Maclay's Female Filmmaker Project

    I must admit I've never had any intention of watching this film. The title had been mentioned here and there, but I had no idea on its plot or anything except it starred Madonna.
    Going in with no expectations was a good move I think, because this was a fun, yet forgettable, 100 minutes.

    Not my favourite Wayans Bros parody, but it wasn't as shit as I had been led to believe.

    Also the dancing in this is still better than Save the Last Dance in its entirety by a long shot, change my mind.
