Cheesy goodness!

I enjoyed this & have re-watched it several times! The brother was a contestant on Last Comic Standing - wishing him many more fun roles to display his talents!

Yall.... please do not waste your time with this, the main character is forced to choose between two emotionally abusive men in order to achieve “true happiness”. Her narcissistic mother is a super great role model too. I honestly don’t know if this movie was a joke or what. There’s even jokes about sexual harassment! Please, if you are a girl/woman who has watched this, DO NOT BE LIKE THE MAIN CHARACTER. Also, why did they feel the need to villainize people who don’t want children...? You don’t need to settle down and have kids to be happy and the people who don’t want that shouldn’t be made out to look like selfish, manipulative people. Also again, is this a world where everyone is white?? Where is the FLAVOR honey

This title has:

Too much consumerism
