Movie Reviews

I Love this movie
S. M. Anderson | Lithia Springs, GA | 02/25/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a cute romantic comedy, that will leave you laughing, and laughing some more. You have Adina, Clyde, Montell and Brandy. Adina and Brandy are friends who meet Clyde and Montell (who are also friends) at a party. Adina is the typical "you have to have serious money to date me" type of attitude. The more money a guy has, the better your chance of dating her. Clyde thinks he is a player, but he is actually a faker. He has keys to a Porsche that does not belong to him, and he goes to banks to get bank slips that don't belong to him with high bank balances to show he has money. Adina gets a peek at one of his bank slips gets woozy, and Clyde offers to take her home. When Adina finds out later that Clyde is not "clocking major figures" she take his car, and he chases her down in a hilarious scene. After all of that turns out Brandy and Montell date, and Clyde and Adina can't have that!!! They set out to ruin the relationship, and chaos ensues. The movie is very funny, and it's a wonderful romantic comedy. There is this one scene that is so hilarious, I still find myself laughing so hard I have tears running down my face.

Adina wears plenty of wigs. She could Regine a run for her money!!! I also enjoy the talk Montel gives when he talks about loving, and loving hard. This is a must see movie in my opinion."
It had such potential

"Okay, so it wasn't exactly great, but I didn't hate it. Tisha campbell is pretty much playing that same "Gina" role only instead of a wise-cracking homeboy she is this time paired with an artsy type dude. This movie is about the two trying to make love work while their two jealous, and trifling, pals plot to split them up. And that Leonard Maltin review is dead wrong because this movie is NOT about their friends trying to plan a wedding. There is a wedding scene, but that is at the end of the movie and was more of a surprise ending than the central theme.Cundieff is certainly sincere in his role, but his character was uneven. His turns at trying to be hip and using slang fell flat. But contrasted with the horrible stereotypical performances of Parker and Torrey, I'd say that Cundieff was a welcome respite.On the whole this movie is worth renting if you just want something very light hearted and silly."

"Paula Jai Parker is the bomb! This is a must see film. This movie is just down right funny. But they could of found a better actor than that yellow guy with those ugly dreds. He was terrible. If it wasn't for Paula Jai, the movie would of been jake."

"If you are African-American and like romantic comedies that have a good character base, then this movie is for you. The central story is around 2 people and their friends. The two main characters are what makes this movie a nice strong and positive movie for African-Americans, while the two side characters are what bring the slapstick comedy in all of its forms.

Overall, the movie is warm and close and has many things to offer that most people dont believe a movie of its caliber could posses. This is the type of movie that can be picked from the shelf at any time and in any circle and watched. Ladies, does your man typically hate romantic movies? Well, youre in luck cause this is the movie that will keep him in his seat.

Whatever justice this review cannot do for the movie, I leave with this; BUY THIS MOVIE, YOU WONT REGRET IT.

Good people
Good theme
Good and BELIEVABLE plot
Strong and TIMELESS message
Good movie about Good people who find something soft and sweet within one another in the harsh world where we all reside."
