I love Queen Latifah as a natural actress and comedienne and Steve Martin is a decent actor, but this comedy never really gels. It's more the script and the direction than their acting. Everything is too forced and unrealistic. Three stars, max.

I am not a fan of Queen Latifah by any means, and I don't always care for Steve Martin (even though he stars in some of my favorite movies) this light hearted comedy is still worth checking out. Don't be expecting to fall off the edge of your seat with laughter, but this movie is still somewhat entertaining. I would recommend this to fans of comedies.

Steve Martin at the end, in hip-hop gear and trying to fit in............hilarious! My favourite part.
