Michael Dequina

The spirit of the old school echoes strongly throughout the film and parallels the purity of the passions and personalities of the paramours.

Brown Sugar manages to take hip-hop's well-established history and make it digestible for audiences not necessarily tied directly into the core of that culture.

Fine performances from Diggs and Lathan give life to an otherwise rehashed love story, but musician Mos Def steals the show.

All in all, Brown Sugar is a satisfying well-made romantic comedy that's both charming and well acted. It will guarantee to have you leaving the theater with a smile on your face.

Brown Sugar takes an old tale and tells it in a fresh, modern way. The music's pretty good, too.

Brown Sugar is nothing you haven't seen before, but if you're into the whole New York-based romantic comedy thing, you'll probably find it a blast.

Hip-hop has a history, and it's a metaphor for this love story.

It's predictable, but it jumps through the expected hoops with style and even some depth.

A lot more dimensional and complex than its sunny disposition would lead you to believe.

It's rare that a movie can be as intelligent as this one is in every regard except its storyline; everything that's good is ultimately scuttled by a plot that's just too boring and obvious.

"Brown Sugar" admirably aspires to be more than another "Best Man" clone by weaving a theme throughout this funny film.

Lathan and Diggs have considerable personal charm, and their screen rapport makes the old story seem new.
