Queen Latifah and Jada Pinkett-Smith reunites for another film since ‘Set it Off’.
The lovely actresses team up with two more beautiful and hilarious women, Regina Hall and Tiffany Haddish, for ‘Girls’ Trip’, a light-hearted comedy about four girlfriends take a trip to New Orleans for an annual festival and, along the way, rediscover their wild sides and strengthen the bonds of sisterhood. The Will Packer-produced film hits theaters July 21st!
I went to see ‘When The Bough breaks‘, expecting to see something other than the typical crazy chick movie.
My expectations were set too high.
However, despite the usual crazy chick storyline, ‘When The Bough Breaks’ did have a unique twist, adding a bit of originality to the plot. I appreciate makers of the film using a newcomer to the feature as the character, Anna. Actress Jaz Sinclair is cute AND gorgeous AND played that role too damn good!
Before her character transitioned, she displayed such a quirkiness that was beyond adorable, I just couldn’t stand it. By the time she transitioned to the obvious “femme fatale”, her sex appeal was emblazoned by her natural beauty and the awesome ability to execute the art of characterization. It was like she played two totally different characters!
Morris Chestnut played the suave and charismatic, loving husband to Regina Hall’s character; the beautiful adoring wife whose mission was to complete their family with a baby that she desperately wants.
There were a few “Oh My God” moments, but also a lot of predictable moments throughout this film, making for “less than enthusiastic” feelings of the next scene, as opposed to anticipating them.
Overall, I enjoyed ‘When The Bough Breaks’ for what it’s about, but I left the theater, feeling like I’ve seen it a few times already.

If you’re like me, you’re looking forward to all the black woman magic of Taraji P. Henson, JanelleMonáe , and Octavia Spencer on the silver screen in January of 2017!
‘Hidden Figures’ tells the untold true story about four brilliant African-American women working at NASA; Katherine G. Johnson (Taraji P. Henson), Dorothy Vaughan (Octavia Spencer) and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monáe). The women served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in history; the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit. The film by 20th Century Fox is in theaters January 13, 2017.
The much-anticipated film also stars Kevin Costner, Kirsten Dunst, and Jim Parsons.
‘Justice With Judge Mablean’ is being called out as a fake televised court show when a prior episode of a case circulated online, which producers obviously snatched from the pages of the classic film, ‘Imitation of Life’.
