As I was creating the list of movies I wanted to feature of this month, I came across just right. I realize that I had never seen this movie before and I knew that I had to fix that as soon as possible. I have heard a lot of great things about this movie and I knew that Queen Latifah was amazing in it. Well this isn't a favorite movie that I have featured this month, I can definitely understand why people love it so much. It's fun and cute and I love that the main characters are two Black people. Even more so, I love that Queen Latifah gets to be the love interest because she truly shines.

What about this entire movie is queen Latifah hands-down. I absolutely loved her character and everything about her. She is so strong and sure of who she is as a person. She is only human and has moments where she is insecure. I loved that she never apologized for the way she felt about herself. There were so many moments where I wanted to yell at others around her because they did not appreciate her for who she was. I had a lot of moments where her mother was extremely frustrating to me.

I love that by the end of the movie, even after she gets the man, she is still herself and still works. That's one thing I really appreciate about this movie: her work is important to her and a big part of her life. It's so important to see that her career is so important to her and that it has not seen as a bad thing. Overall, this is such a fun movie.
