  1. A delightful, inspiring and ultimately redemptive comedy-drama.

    Contains more than a handful of big laughs and a highly charismatic cast that knows how to put them over.

    Breathes fresh life into old formulas.

    Everything about the film is familiar except that the twentysomethings are all African American.
  5. It's a tribute to the actors' appeal that they can sling this hash and keep our sympathies, but they can't squeeze much drama from pure soap.

    Has added virtually nothing to two cinema genres with their own prodigious histories: ensemble and black.
