4. Her Ability To Make Us Laugh
Kimberly had us in a constant state of laughter as she played Cheryl, the quick-witted and sometimes petty older sister. Cheryl’s jabs at her sister, Rachel (Gabrielle Union) and her dwindling patience with her husband Lonnie (J.B. Smoove) had us roaring with laughter from start to finish.

Kimberly’s portrayal of her character encourages us to understand the importance of family. No matter how much money we have or how we are perceived, without love, we have nothing. Kimberly’s quiet wisdom and loving heart shine through her character in Almost Christmas, reminding us that the holidays are about love.
