For me, JB, the draws are Kerry Washington and Loretta Devine. And from the first few youtube videos I looked at, you could make the case that it's Loretta's movie.
That movie was laughable and absurd. It was like watching The Women Of Brewster Place on steroids. I thought what kind of apartment building was that where all those terrible things were happening to these women at one time? Maybe the building was demon possessed? Why did Janet look like something right out of the Twilight films? That man should never be allowed to make another film again.
Janet's color was red. All the women had assigned colors, just like in the play. Mariah was supposed to play Thandie Newton's part, but had to back out because she was pregnant.
Tyler loves his divas.
Amazing actresses and performances. So poorly directed.
the drunk guy throwing his kids out the window. oh dear.
Ms.Jackson if you're nasty
Janet tried so hard to lower her tinkerbell voice (like Madonna, always trying to gain acceptance as a Thespian- and failing) that she's monotone and sounds like she's possessed by Pazuzu.
Janet's husband was on the down low.
R11, they lowered her voice in post. It was mentioned several times upon the film's release.
