Like Tayo’s friends, sometimes my friends drink too much, and sometimes they do stupid stuff with their cars. But unlike Tayo’s friends, my friends who do that are good friends and good people, which is not something I’m sure that Tayo…

    Comedy movies are more than just light entertainment on a Saturday afternoon – or a great option for a date night! The funniest movies tend to live on even after the credits have rolled out.
