Movie Reviews

Loved it. Don't let the title fool you!
taryn | 06/25/2008

"This film crossed my mind and I was OVERJOYED to see the title on Amazon as the first thing in the google cue...

I was priviledged to catch this film at the American Black Film Festival last year ('07) and it was definitely an audience favorite. To all the "white" folks who might be put off by the title: Don't be! Courtney Lily who wrote the film has also written for the shows Arrested Development, Everybody Hates Chris and My Boys and the same quirky, tounge-in-cheek style is apparent throughout.

The film is definitely different and/but? it works in every way. If you love films that break the mold and characters whose quirks are both endearing and amusingly annoying, this is definitely a film for you. Support independent film! Big studios won't be putting out anything original any time soon..."

Don't Let the Title Fool You
Ehav Eliyahu Ever | Jerusalem, Israel | 02/22/2009

"Originally, the title of this movie was The Inevitable Undoing of Jay Brooks. The distrubters forced them to change it to I'm Through With White Girls since they felt it was more catchy. So don't let the title fool you.

Now to the review. This was an extremely enjoyable film about what happens when a person thinks that their problems in love are due to one thing and they find that their problems are due to themselves. I don't want to give to much of the story away, but Jay Brooks is a guy who comes to the conclusion that his problems in love are due to the fact that he has only dated white women. What he finds though is that his problems are of his own making and that race and class had nothing to do with it.

I enjoyed this movie because it is not a stereotypical movie. There is in fact a funny scene where two people see each other as stereotypes. The movie is a colorful mix of characters surrounding the love story two people who themselves are figuring things out and in the process help Jay Brooks figure out himself. The film is also about growth for several characters in the movie and also about what one will do for love and how it can cause one to overcome their deepest fears.

Buy this movie if you love quirky, funny, romance movies."
The Worse Title for one of the Best Movies I've seen this ye
Olaf Johnson | Anchorage, AK 99505 | 02/21/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Horrible title for one of the best movies I've seen in a long time. At best the charm this this movie exudes compares to "Slumdog Millionaire", at worse a Tyler Perry movie. Even so it is very funny and even, makes fun of Tyler Perry-type movies where Black people are only portrayed as Lawyers, Pro-Athletes or Best-Selling Authors. Here you get all of that and more. The characters are well drawn in a multitude of dimensions and flavors. In fact the movie has absolutely nothing to do with the title after the first few minutes. Like Slumdog Millionaire it charms us from the way it shows the struggle of a lovable underdog fitting into the cookie cut out complexity that is commercial society whiles trying to find the truth about himself and love.
I don't even know how I found this movie on Netflix, furthermore I don't even know why I bothered to see it since the title suggest something of a lowball Wayan Brothers comedy. But the viewer reviews were 100% positive and I too will add my 100% positive.
That said, someone needs to change the title of this movie if it will ever be taken for a serious comedy. This one is up there with the best of them (Also reminds me of 40 Year Old Virgin)"
