    I would’ve loved for B-Rocka to “Put it Down” in a song and performance in this movie, but I guess she was too busy since she stays booked with a job. It also would’ve been nice if Mariah had a part of made an appearance.

      This girls voice is basic, it has no soul.

      Stephanie Mills sang the heck out of HOME, this girl does not even scratch the service. A dark skin black girl who sounds like a white girl who graduated from a prep school.

      Mariah would have been good as the Good Witch. That would have pushed me to watch.

    Good sh!t Common! I love Queen Latifah in just about everything she do, I know she’ll have me laughing. She is so funny to me. And congratulations to Amber Riley on snagging this joint! Such a good look. I wanna watch this.

    If Brandy were playing Dorothy then maybe I’d be excited about this. But after hearing/seeing these clips… I’m in no rush.

    Brandy should’ve gotten the roll as Dorothy!
