    Hottest West Indian Movie

    I have seen Dancehall Queen numerous times and I can never get tired watching it. The soundtrack is amazing with scintillating reggae hits and rhythms, and my all time favorite number "Dancehall Queen". I recomment this to anyone who wants to see the true beauty of my beloved Caribbean and hear some of our hottest jams.

    Loved it!

    This movie is truly one of my favorite movies. I've seen it about 100 times and I'm still not sick of it. It's one of those down low good movies that you don't really hear about but once you see it, you got to get your own copy. I would recommend this movie for sure!

    A crazy but educational movie

    This movie was excellent. It shows that a mother would do anything for her children to survive. It also shows the hardships of growing up in Jamacia. I have seen this movie over 1,000 times, and each time it gets better.

    BOOMBASTIC AND SAUCY

    This is one of my favorite movies because being from Jamaica, I can relate to the life there and the hard work you have to go through to get ahead in life. The danceing is sexy and my Brother made a cameo in the movie dancing at the first club. I love the moves and I do some of the moves at my job with the music in my head. A must for people to enjoy and a lesson for others.
