While all three actors had fun filming the movie, Mo'Nique says one of the
best moments for her was when Martin generously offered her some invaluable
advice about the business. "He pulled me to the side and he said, 'Listen, don't
ever let them tell you what you can't have,'" Mo'Nique says. "Since that day,
I've made some of the best deals I've ever made in my career because it keeps
ringing in my head. … It will stay with me forever."
