Movie Reviews

I loved this movie!!

"Because Eva was such a "witch" to put it nicely. Gabrielle Union was excellent in this role as matriarch of the Dandridge family. She was more than domineering to her sisters and their husbands. I laughed when one of them got an enema. I never expected her to carry her work as an inspector into her personal relationships. One man was so damaged by her lethal tongue that he studdered when he spoke from then on. Poor Ray, (LL Cool J) wanted to give up after their first meeting, but even he saw something under that lethal exterior beating its way to the surface. I liked the way Eva got even with the man that hurt her so long ago. This part really made me laugh so hard other than the part where the enema took place. I think the hardest lesson for Eva was learning how to 'let go' of the control and pain she had over her sister's lives and those that they married. I would recommend this movie to every LL Cool J fan like myself."
Very good most of the way, but falls flat at the end

""Deliver Us From Eva" is an amusing comedy about a family of sisters, and the men who they are with. Two of the sister's are married, one has a boyfriend, and the other.....is Eva(Gabrielle Union). Eva is a hard nosed, don't take anything from anyone, especially men, person. Not only that, she basically controls the lives of her three sisters. This does not sit to well with their men. All the men really want is to get Eva out of their hair so they can live happily with their wives. It'll take a pro to do the job. That's where player Ray(LL Cool J) comes in.This is suprisingly a very amusing film. I went into the movie with rather low expectations. However, the film is very satisfying, except for the formulaic ending. One thing that works for the film, is they loveable, and attractive characters.
Everyone is likeable, and it's a joy to watch these people talk.The film and dialouge gets a little goofy in some spots, but all around the film is pretty funny. I found myself smiling alot, and chuckling as well. The performances are also good. Gabrielle Union plays Eva well, even though at times she tends to overact. LL Cool J also is good as Ray, and he has a certain charm about him that I've never really noticed before.At the end, things get a little crazy, and at times stupid, but the overall effect of the movie is positive. "Deliver Us From Eva" provides a good time, but not much more than that."
'Deliver Us' is too cute... and LL Cool J is fine!

"This film is so cute and fun, what's not to like? Yeah, Eva is over the top, but it's a comedy, so sit back and laugh. It reminded me of 'Two Can Play That Game' in a good way. LL Cool J is a great actor and it's surprisingly easy to separate him from his old school rap persona. I especially loved Robinne Lee (from 'Hav Plenty' and 'National Security') in this too, as one of Eva's sisters. She is a great actress who will go far!"
Enjoyable

"I never got a chance to go see this movie when it hit the theaters. I rented it not knowing what to expect. After watching it on DVD, I can say that I would not have minded paying the price of the movie ticket to see this movie. It's not all that glamorous, but what it is is a nice feel-good, respectable movie. Gabrielle Union does a nice job playing a rude, obnoxious, man-hating sister by the name of Eva. At times she takes it over the top, but that's acting and that's what she gets paid to do. Eva is bent on taking care of her little sister's who all lean to her for advice instead of their men. The sister's love Eva and listen to her as if her word were the gospel. The men, on the other hand, hate her guts and want nothing more than to see her leave town. She often interferes with her sisters' relationships and makes it a point to drive her sisters' men crazy. So, in order to bring proper order to their respected relationships the men plot to get Eva out of their lives. Thus the need for Ray (LL Cool J). Ray is a smooth-talking playa with serious game. The men talk Ray into dating Eva to get her out of their lives. Ray agrees and thus the story begans with two people falling in love with each other that weren't supposed to fall in love. That's when things get messy for Ray and Eva. Some parts of the movie were a little outrageous and the ending was not the best, but all in all it was still a pretty good movie. I've read some of the reviews on this movie and other movies as well. My thing is that if you want real life situations, go watch a drama or a real life story. This is comedy...comedy's not supposed to be real. It's really an escape from reality. Don't we all need that right about now? Anyway, besides the ending, this movie was well done with the supporting actors doing a great job of playing out their respected roles. Furthermore, the women in this movie are pretty fine. Also, LL did a nice job playing Ray. I have a lot of respect for him as an actor. He didn't over play his part, but he made it believable. All in all, I give this movie a B+. The ending was a little cliche."
