Nobody's Fool - Movie Review


I must first give a disclaimer. Well several. 1. I'm not the biggest fan of Tyler Perry creations. 2. There will be spoilers in this post, so if you plan on seeing this movie, you may not want to read this just yet.

Ok, now that's out of the way. The first time I saw the trailer for this I was iffy about whether or not I actually wanted to see the movie. I was sold once I saw Omari Hardwick though. {Insert Swoons}

The movie started out slow for me. I was annoyed with what I will call over-acting. The first 15 minutes of this movie annoyed me. Scratch that. A lot of the acting in this movie was  horrible. The jailhouse parking lot sex scene was absurd and too over the top for me. It took a while for this movie to come together.

Omari Hardwick is fine. Did I say that already? Sheesh. I would buy another ticket just to see him in all of his glory. Omari's character was believable. And fine. Dang there I go again. You love him in this movie. You have no choice but to love him. He's an ex-con that has turned his entire life around and is helping others to do the same. It's beautiful. He's beautiful. His character was my favorite. I only wished he hadn't let Danica do him so dirty so many times. I wanted to throat punch her.

Tiffany Haddish as Tanya. She's funny. She's annoying. But she's funny. She is the cousin that will do whatever it is that she wants to do regardless of what anyone has to say. She's aggressive. This was her movie. She is down for her sister! But she also let's her sister know when she's tripping. She's everybody's favorite cousin.

Tika Sumpter as Danica. It took too long for us to know why there were two different pronunciations of her name. For a while, we just assumed Tanya was certifiable crazy... Danica is smart, she's beautiful, but she is a head case when it comes to men, as a lot of us are. As far as the Catfish goes...that story line was so messy! Chris Rock came out of nowhere and that part was just outrageous. She's selfish and confused. When she doesn't get what she wants, she throws a fit. She's a spoiled brat. She still ends up with what she wants...after a little tough love.

Whoopi Goldberg as Mom. I think she was actually smoking the weed she was growing.

The movie was laughable. But I could have waited to see it. Except for Omari doing his "Power" move. I would pay double to see that any day. LOL (Hi Mom). 

Overall, you get the point that you need to give people a chance and that people can change. And you love the scene where Danica is "down on my knees begging you please COME HOMMMMEEEE!" It is a movie that you don't have to think too much about. There are some good laughs.

XOXO,

Dial Vitamin Boost Giveaway

Howdy folks!

Dial sent me a bottle of their new Vitamin Boost Body Wash to test out. They even sent me a few coupons to give away to you guys! Don't they ROCK?! Yeah they do, and so does this new body wash!

I got the product a few weeks ago, but as is with most things that come to my house, it just sat in the living room unopened. Not because I didn't want to open it...but I've been a little short on time. Even with several snow days it seems like I just don't have enough hours in a day. Does that mean I don't wash? NOOOO. It means that this body wash just made it upstairs with me this morning! LOL

I'm always skeptical about "moisturizing" body washes. I have extremely sensitive, eczema prone skin. So I really have to be careful. Even some washes that claim to be triple moisturizing dry me out and leave me wishing I had one of those cat towers to rub up against. So I finally got to test the waters with this one.



Here are what this product claims to be…

Holiday Party Etiquette

With the holidays coming up on us so fast, it’s only right that we talk party etiquette. I can only speak about Black party etiquette, so that’s what I will discuss here. I'm sure some of these rule can be applied across different cultures/ethnicities.




If you are invited to a party, gathering, dinner, or the like, there are some things that you just don’t do. If we invited you, we must like you at least a little bit. That can end quickly. Here are some general rules of Black house gatherings that expand beyond the holidays. You’re welcome.

Don’t assume all Black events start late. Yes…a lot of them do, but you don’t want to be the late one. If I tell you it starts at 3, I’ve most likely accounted for the lateness of my family members. We move on without them. Don’t be tardy for the party. Don’t show up empty handed. Even if you are told not to worry about bringing anything, bring something. Even if it’s a bottle of sparkling cider. There will be massive side eye if you show up empty…

Dial Baby & Kids (Giveaway)

Let me start by saying that the toddler years are fun...and a true test of faith and patience LOL! I love my little tot with everything I have in me. But every day she tests my limits in way I didn't even know were possible. I mostly laugh.

She is a very spirited little girl who LOVES to be outside. I mean she will cry to go outside and sometimes all she wants to do is climb in a chair and sit on the porch and watch the cars go by. On this particular day though...(Jesus be a fence) she wanted to chase lizards, pop bubbles, shred leaves, kick her ball in the sticker bushes and throw a flower pot off the deck to see how far she could get it to go. Maybe softball is in her future, who knows LOL. That said ball ended up bursting from being repeatedly kicked in the sticker bushes...



After our world wind backyard excursion, we go inside to have a snack and settle down a bit. Luckily she likes to wash her hands. I mean, she almost had that lizard!



She really enjoys Dial Watery Melon scen…
