I have a soft spot for ensemble casts, especially those featuring black actors. Dysfunctional Friends, directed by Datari Turner, has a a list of actors that you’d be hard-pressed to scoff at. Persia White (Lynn from Girlfriends) already won the American Black Film Festival Best Actress Award for her role in the film, which also stars Meagan Good, Tatyana Ali, Essence Atkins, Reagan Gomez, Stacey Dash, Jason Weaver, Wesley Jonathan, and in his first real acting role, football player Terrell Owens.
The film’s description: A Comedy/ Drama reminiscent of The Big Chill, Nine estranged friends are reunited after their larger then life friend unexpectedly dies. The friends who haven’t seen each other in years are all forced to stay at their deceased friends estate for the weekend and must reconnect with each other working through all of their issues in order to each collect their inheritance.
