Hilarious.
27 January 2006 | by mcgrady62_03See all my reviews

If you haven't seen it you really should. I'm 15 and today I'm watching it for the first time on HBO and it is the funniest thing I've ever seen in my life. Before I got on this website I knew it had Whoopie in it but I didn't know Regis and Denzel are in this also. It's a great cast and I loved it. Another thing is that I had never heard of this show before but I happened to be flipping through the channels and stumbled across it and I thought it sounded interesting so I started watching it and I was laughing so hard. If you have kids of any age this is a great thing to watch and laugh together with each other. I hope my comment was kinda helpful and I hope ya'll get a chance to see this sometime.
