Confessions of a Marriage Counselor
So often times before I write a movie review I peep out what other movie critics have to say about the movie. Let me start out by saying that reading their reviews are a waste of time for most of people. They are definitely not feeling the urban Hip Hop vibe which is what many movie going audiences relate to in a movie so they lack the insight to give commentary on your behalf.
