not very deep, but certainly unique

I've heard many people slate this film as 'the worst ever', which is a miserable overreaction. Though the plot could be better etc. it is completely tongue in cheek and such a rare idea - 'a dancehall musical shot on location in Harlesden' - that I like it. Maybe not something I'd watch too many times, but the fact that it's out there is enough to make me smile. Especially if it winds up people who are unwilling to suspend their own narrow views of the world. How the female toasters use their vibrant sexuality as expression, opposed to the aggressiveness of the male counterparts that dominate the scene in reality (Buju Banton etc) is interesting. There's a pretty decent D&B tune in their at one point too. Think of it as a reaction to the falseness of the Spice Girls 'girl power' doing the global marketing rounds at the time.

Come on!! It's not that bad

This is so easy to launch a poor 1.5 on that movie. Yes it is very naïve,the plot is thin and not original but it does add an interesting and compelling view on some black communities,and the fate of their teenage mothers and to say the least it is full of energy, the cast is more than correct, and the music is quite good. Less dull and politically correct than a lot of Lifetime and HBO T.V movies, less ridiculous that a lot of Hollywood blockbusters.At least it aims at entertaining and edifying it's fresh, rough, definitely not so bad if you give it a shot. Well I enjoyed it more than Fast and Furious, Pearl Harbor or XXX, you'll say this is not difficult.

Entertaining

I caught this movie on Starz. I admit I never heard of it. First of all I am not going to say this was a a bad movie. I have seen far too many bad movies for this to qualify as one. It is obvious the movie was made on a shoestring budget and it never took itself seriously.

I was confused at first though. When in the first scene of the movie the two leads break out in song it almost seemed to me like a musical. Not a movie about music with a few songs but a straight out musical with singing dialog. Thankfully it was just a scare because I was not prepared to watch a musical which is my least favorite genre of movies particularly the movie musicals of the last 20 years.

This is about a couple with two children who both love music but only one, the husband seems to be able to follow his dream. The wife is a little tiffed about this and sets out to make herself a name in the music business. She has two best friends and they start a singing trio. Mainly reggae music. They go through the usual ups and downs. Nothing new is offered in this movie. Cummulating at the obligatory main concert in the end.

My only problem with the movie that the leads were not fully explained to us. We know that her mother is not crazy about him, but why. He seems to love her daughter and he appears to be making a success out of his career. Other then the recent career misunderstanding they look like a happy family. There is a funky relationship going on with her sister. Who seems to be who her mother wants her to aspire to be like. But later in the movie that relationship takes a twist. And a few things are explained. But I am not going to spoil and tell. But it came out of left field. And what in the heck was going on with the wardrobe? It looked like something out of children's show where the adults play childlike characters. Or a David Bowie in his Ziggy Stardust days. The women in particular.

What this movie did offer is a good solid cast of actors I have never heard of. I live in NY and this was a movie produced in England so it is very possible these are actors known in Great Britian. I do believe I saw the male lead in other pictures but I am not sure. I liked the empowerment of the woman lead to follow her dream and not let the husband tell her she cannot do it.

I liked the closeness of the friendship of the 3 women. You do not see that enough in movies. I loved the music with the exception of the horrendous Babymothers song. Te performances were cool. I would of liked to see more performances though.

All in all the movie set out to do what ALL movies I believe should do and that is entertain the viewer. Who could ask for anything more.
