Has a problem with its slack and meandering narrative...but it's still well worth a look for its generous wit, casual insightfulness, and love of humanity.

A high-stakes romantic comedy which pits a bourgie brother against another from the 'hood who knows how to keep it real.

In gasoline terms, Premium isn't. But the romantic dramedy has some high-octane emotional moments, thanks to writer-director Pete Chatmon's wise dissection of the games one-time lovers play.

Chatmon's ability to inject humor while addressing some serious issues with the film business and romantic relationships add to his talent and makes "Premium" worth seeing.

Premium's believable moments slightly prevail over its inauthentic ones, helping writer-director Pete Chatmon's modestly played drama just barely cross over the brink of compelling naturalism.

Standout thesping by stars Dorian Missick and Zoe Saldana, along with fully fleshed-out secondary roles, distinguish Pete Chatmon's gentle comedy.

Chatmon reworks many elements of Robert Townsend's erratic 1987 film Hollywood Shuffle into a fluent story that favors character over satire.
