Movie Reviews

Truth is sweeter than fiction!
Catherine | Chicago, IL United States | 07/30/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

""Hav Plenty" is based on a true story. Lee Plenty (Christopher Cherot) is a sarcastic yet sensitive guy who spends New Year's Eve with his female friend, Havilland Savage. We're not quite sure why they bicker so much or what kind of relationship they have, but when her neurotic friend and her dissatisfied sister are added to the mix, we see Lee and Hav's relationship evolve. What emerges is a sweet, sexy mix of humor and originality that is lacking from average romantic comedies. "Hav Plenty" works on many levels. It is smart without taking itself too seriously and it is full of humor without being over the top. With his tussled hair and almost ratty sweater, Christopher Cherot is absolutely scrumptious... intelligent and witty, yet truly fine and charming. He tells his true story with an honest smile that makes the audience hope like heck that he gets the girl. This movie is something different, something above average, something to see with your man or your girls or both."
YOU WILL.,. watch this movie again & again! It's that good!

"I found this movie to be something that a lot of movies are really missing these days. Something with a unique story line and some fresh ideas. I've had to watch this movie (happily) again and again to catch all the sutff that I missed the first time from having to hit the rewind button on the remote so many times because I was laughing so hard! Simply a great and enjoyable movie. As a matter of fact, I'm back here this time to purchase one for a friend (which is something that I never do!). Then you'll be back to get your own copy, just like me. Definitely a film for the archives. A mellow sunshine on a rainy day kind of a movie. Honest!"

"I'm an avid movie buff but I don't usually watch independent movies. I have to admit though that my thinking has changed since seeing this movie. It was truly refreshing to watch characters that we can relate to in an everyday "normal" lifestyle and not that gangsta genre that has labeled people of color. This is a must see for those in agreement! I have watched this movie at least 12 times and I still find it appealing each time I see it. My favorite scene is when he goes to Hav's bedroom door in a Mickey Mouse sweatshirt. The look on his face and on the face of Mickey is priceless! It will definitely be added to my collection."
Havplenty is the Best

"I'd just like to congrdulate Christopher Cherot on this film. For the first time in a long time black people have the opportunity see themselves in a positive way without over doing it. I thought that the film had a great plot as well as realistic characters. I loved every actor in the film. I've seen it so many times I feel as though I know them personally. When I first rented the film I didn't have any idea whatso ever as to what the film would be about, but after watching it for seven times in a row, all I can say is "True Love". HavPlenty is by far one of my favorite films of all time to watch."
