  1. I’ve been meaning to write on this for quite awhile now-I have always, always loved the comedy of Mr. Reynaldo Ray! I will never forget all those supportive, yet memorable roles that he had taken on throughout his career-including the brief, but hilarious cameo he did in Robert Townsend’s “Jackie’s Back” film. Both he, this film and Mr. Townsend have looonnnggg been underrated for quite awhile but us life-long fans shall always hold a place in our hearts for them. I certainly know I do. R.I.P. Reynaldo Rey, I’m sure you will be makin’ laugh uP there!
