Critic Reviews

  • A perfectly pleasant if slightly pokey comedy. More...
  • Holland lets things peter out midway, but it's notably better acted -- and far less crass - than some other recent efforts in the burgeoning genre of films about black urban professionals. More...
  • A sweet-tempered comedy that forgoes the knee-jerk misogyny that passes for humor in so many teenage comedies. More...
  • While the film is competent, it's also uninspired, lacking the real talent and wit to elevate it beyond its formula to the level of classic romantic comedy to which it aspires. More...
  • Mandel Holland's direction is uninspired, and his scripting unsurprising, but the performances by Phifer and Black are ultimately winning. You'll find yourself wishing that you and they were in another movie. More...
