Movie Reviews

Anyone Can Relate
Majik, The R.E.D.D. Group | New York, NY | 01/17/2001
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is a film, I feel, that anyone who has ever dated in the 80's, 90's, or 00's can relate to. Anyone who has gone to the edges of the earth and tried every tactic availabe to find true love can relate to this. Especially someone who had dated someone from the personal ads or online. I really enjoy the message of 'sometimes true love can be staring you in the face.' I recommend this film to anyone single and especially to those who are dating. You might just see yourself in one or many of the characters. Excellently written, directed, and edited this film is easy to follow and really keeps your attention and your emotions at their peak! Malik Yoba and Stacey Dash both give excellent performances and the surprise ending will leave you with chills and possibly a tear of happiness. This film is a must for anyone's DVD or Video Library. A work of art that you can't help but watch over and over and over again. 'Personals' is definitely worth every dollar and then some."
Entertaining and Sexy
Zane | Maryland | 10/10/2001
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I had the pleasure of catching this film during a film festival in DC and I then ordered a copy from Amazon. It was hilarious at times, heartwarming at times, and just downright entertaining. The main character is a reporter who decides to date several women that he meets through personal ads for a story. He assumes that he will learn something pertinent about women but ends up finding out even more about himself, his behavior, and his emotional needs. I would suggest this movie to anyone who wants to discuss the male-female thing with their mate."
Quick Review
C. Coleman | Dallas, Texas United States | 10/06/2003
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Malik Yoba plays Keith, a struggling journalist that comes up with a story idea. He uses the personal ads to get 30 dates in 30 days. He discovers all sorts of women until he discovers a girl (Stacey Dash) that sees right through him. What turns out to be a story idea becomes a quest to understand woman and their issues of dating.
If you have seen How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days or Never Been Kissed, this movie si sort of a hybrid of those movies. You pretty much see every type of woman out there and then some. A nice movie without the excessive sexual content."

"I thought film was very well acted out. The cast was chosen well with the exception of Stacy Dash. She did a good job but should have been used more to show her skills. I wonder if a Soundtrak of various music in movie was ever put on CD? Does anyone know? The film is well worth the cost of purchase."
