Funny and a decent story.
I noticed a similarity btwn this and “Diary of a Mad, Black Woman” in that it also had a ‘silly’ character (both heavy black women played by men), dark storyline and significant Christian presences (more cultural than spiritual).
I started thinking about other comedies and if they had similarities. I figured I cd find the silly/comedy , but not the Christian.
The first one I thought of was “Fletch” – silly characters/comedy, but a serious story of drugs/murder.
Then I went extreme: “Dumb and Dumber” – same: silly characters/comedy, but serious story of kidnapping.
