Soul Food

The 1997 movie Soul Food had all the ingredients of classic comedy. An all-star cast (Vivica A. Fox, Vanessa Williams, Mekhi Phifer) and a solid story about tradition and family. Its 2000 TV incarnation lasted five seasons and continued telling those riveting tales of close-knit relationships on the small screen.
