oh yeah with the chemistry
1 August 2005 | by she_malSee all my reviews

just wanted to say i totally agree about the chemistry. i saw it with my mom at the theater and was lost about the plot then but it didn't matter cuz there was so much going on between chayanne and vanessa williams i was totally caught up in them. i think they had just one kiss and that was so hot, it was a tease. they seemed to have a lot of fun together. the movie gets shown on cable a bit and i understand what it's about now a little too after having seen it a few times. i always think the writing will bore me and it does a little but the chemistry keeps me there. chayanne's character has a black cuban mom too, they show a quick photo of her, and the vanessa williams character cuz of her color and the fact that she's a single mom too. before they kiss, they talk about her child and how she was left pregnant and he grabs her then. still it all kind of doesn't matter cuz those two are real hot and cute together. i do hope they do something else somehow cuz i know this didn't get a lot of attention.
