I bought this DVD because I'm a huge fan of Destiny's Child, especially Kelly Rowland. I was very pleasantly surprised by the depth of this movie. It's acted with vivacity and true emotion by all its stars, and it contains moments that make you laugh out loud, as well as times when you want to cry.
Duane Martin stars as Derrick, a broke college student studying to be a lawyer, and who's desperately seeking a job. He is prodded into being a seat filler, someone who occupies the places of absent people to make the audience look complete at awards shows, by his hilarious best friend E.J. (played wonderfully by DeRay Davis). While filling in for a famous entertainment attorney, he meets the gorgeous and charismatic pop star Jhnelle (Kelly Rowland). Before either of them know what is happening, they're falling in love with each other. Perfect, right? Wrong! Jhnelle thinks he's Al Grant, the famous attorney, and has no idea that he's just a seat filler. Derrick doesn't want to lose her love and trust, so he has to do everything he can to keep her from the truth, with a little (well-meant but very unhelpful) assistance from E.J. Other stars include Melanie Brown (that's right... Scary Spice!) as Sandie, Jhnelle's best friend, and Patrick Fischler as Irwin, her crazy manager. The DVD also features awesome deleted scenes, and an extended performance of Kelly's great tune, "Follow Your Destiny." My only complaint for this film is that it doesn't have a soundtrack, with complete versions of her other amazing songs in this movie. Nevertheless, I would encourage anyone who loves a good, romantic comedy to check this one out!
