Movie Reviews

Best of the BET novels turned movie series
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This one is by far the best of the BET novels made into movies! It has a great plot, the characters are believable as well as likeable, and the cast is top notch. From dashing Cress Williams playing the handsome Marcus/"Miles" ("Scooter" from the TV sitcom Living Single) to the beautiful Simbi Khali who plays Joi/"Sky", and of course the sexy female "playa" Monica played by Kellita Smith (of the Bernie Mac Show). This was a movie that I enjoyed watching over and over and over again! It really is a black version of "You've Got Mail", but with a "Love Jones" kinda flava to it. I especially loved the smooth and artistic "Otis" played by Leonard Roberts (recently appeared in the summer hit "Drumline"). I also have to say the chemistry between Joi and Marcus was so strong, I kept thinking to myself--this is more than just acting. Well, low and behold, I find out that they are married in real life!If you like romantic comedies that are as much fun to watch as it is entertainig, I recommend highly recommend adding this one to your collection!"
This movie is so good!

"You will not regret buying this. The acting is good and the storyline is clever. I first saw this on BET and didn't even see it from the beginning and I still thought it was great. I saw it a couple more times and wanted to buy it for the longest time. As soon as I found out it was available I bought it. I still watch it over and over."
Romantic Comedy with Flavor
Reader Woman | New York | 10/18/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This movie has a stellar cast and the story is engaging. Frankly it is one of the best BET "book to movie" films. And to be honest, it is a lot better than a lot of the Black films that have come out in the theaters as of late. I love romantic comedies as a genre of film. And I seldolm get to see black storylines in the movies. The premis of the film could easily be billed as a black You've Got Mail. However, the film really has its own twists and plots. The secret e-mail buddies plot is the one thing that Masquerade share with the Hanks and Ryan film, the rest is fresh, new, and not to mention funny and sexy as hell. The chemistry between the two leading stars of Masquerade is wonderful and leaps off the screen. Buy this film and see for yourself."
