All Critics (5) | Top Critics (4)

A Good Day certainly shows Dortch as a talent to watch. Whether he does anything more with that talent will be up to him.

Dortch's manipulation of stereotype and the associations embedded in everything from skin tone to music set him apart as a talent to watch.

A raunchy between-the-sheets peak at modern-day black sexuality...should woo urban audiences to the theater.

A kooky, kinky quintet of black bedtimes stories.

Audience Reviews for A Good Day to Be Black & Sexy

I've never seen or even heard of this, but I had to review it for title alone! I'm black and sexy everyday!

Despite the shitty camerawork (constant shaky close-ups) and semi-softcore pornography, the flick was pretty enjoyable.

I don't think it has anything to do with "black" sexuality. I mean...anyone of ANY race could have (and probably have) gone through any of those situations. I mean, sure the language is different, but there was nothing extraordinary about this film.
