Deliver Us From Eva (2003)



Critic Consensus: Though Union and LL Cool J are appealing romantic leads, Deliver Us From Eva is too predictable and contrived.

[Smith] and Union bring out the best in each other, especially (and surprisingly) during the more dramatic emotional interludes.

Depicts gender warfare as a kind of pillow fight.

Top Critic

Any romantic comedy that gives you time to think probably isn't doing its job.

Stuff like that happens only in sitcoms and bad movies ...

Top Critic

Solid cast and the occasional chuckle notwithstanding, this movie is wildly uneven, chugging this way and that before careening off track.

Ebert & Roeper
Top Critic

Deliver us from screenplays that force likable protagonists to twist and bend their personalities to serve the contortions of a ridiculous and formulaic plot.

Audience Reviews for Deliver Us From Eva

Your typical, run-of-the-mill black chick-flick. It was only okay =/

Super Reviewer

I'm pretty sure I stumbled upon this movie without having much interest in it, but it turned out to be a film I could watch several times and still be entertained by. There's great chemistry between the main characters, and while the plot is nothing new, it's still really fun. Love this movie!


I sometimes wonder if Gabrielle Union is really like this in person. She really likes playing jerks, though LL Cool Jay has a reputation for being one, too. He also has the rep of being a lousy actor. He suffers from what I call Tom Cruise Syndrome, which is the inability to not portray a role in their own real-life persona. Will Smith used to be like that but eventually evolved into a better actor and Oscar-worthy performer. But LL Cool Dude will never do that. Stick with the rap LL. Overall, a bleh movie. Eva's a bitch. So's life. The end.
