| Really crap! 1/10
Review: What an awful movie! All of the reviews were saying that the film was crap, but I thought that I would give it a go because I like Keith David, but the film was proper crap. If the director was trying to make a comedy with a message, he failed miserably. The jokes weren't funny and the storyline was ridiculous. Omar Gooding, the young brother of Cuba Gooding, wasn't a good choice by the director because he just made a fool out of himself. I thought that the movie was going to be about Christmas in Compton, which is the American title for the movie, but it ended up being about Omar Gooding managing a band, trying to make them the next Destiny Child. Anyway, I think that you can tell that I really didn't enjoy this movie. Awful!

Round-Up: It's always a shame when you see actors like Eric Roberts and Keith David in terrible movies like this because they are respected actors. I wonder what makes them take on these roles once they read the terrible script. I haven't seen Omar Gooding in anything else so I can't really comment in his history, but he hasn't got the screen charisma like his brother. I wasn't massively disappointed with this movie because I wasn't expecting that much, and I must admit, I did fall asleep halfway through it, so I will be putting it at the bottom of the pile.

I recommend this movie to people who like there pointless comedies about a man trying to make a band successful. 1/10
