Movie Info

"35 & Ticking" centers around the lives of Victoria, Zenobia , Clevon, and Phil -- all friends approaching the age of 35 and struggling to build the families they've always dreamed of. While Zenobia is still looking for a man, Victoria is married to a man who doesn't want children. Clevon, meanwhile, is too geeky to get a woman, and Phil is already married with children, but his wife is not very interested in being a mother. All four of them try to rectify their romantic lives and futures while their biological clocks tick away. -- (C) Official site

Critic Reviews for 35 And Ticking

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (2)

Although writer-director Russ Parr sometimes overstays his welcome - peppier editing would have helped - a generally warm approach helps distinguish his oft-told story.

Top Critic

It's a familiar setup for an ensemble dramedy about relationships. If only the movie had a heart.

Top Critic

Takes an amusing look at the state of black-on-black romance in the 21st Century.

Full Review… | May 26, 2011

An occasionally funny comedy that's far from poignant or true-to-life, but it's nonetheless harmless, breezy and amusing more often than not.

Audience Reviews for 35 And Ticking

Are you going to need your goggles today? Two best friends since elementary school have grown to be successful business women but unsuccessful in their personal lives. One is married but cannot convince her husband to have children, while the other is a successful television news anchor that is single with no children. Can the aging women work together and turn their personal lives around? "They were crip walking at the party." Russ Parr, director of Hear No Evil, A Christmas Blessing, Comeback Dad, The Last Stand, and The Undershepherd, delivers 35 and Ticking. The storyline for this picture is straightforward, predictable, and cliché in a lot of way. The acting is mediocre and nothing special overall. The cast includes Kevin Hart, Tamala Jones, Nicole Ari Parker, Meagan Good, and Clifton Powell. "I used to be a man." I came across this on Netflix and decided to give it a shot. There were some funny sequences with Hart and his demeanor and scenes were worth while, but this doesn't add much to the genre that makes it a must see. I actually recommend skipping this. "You gonna drink that?" Grade: C-

Unlike many other black centered comedies, which are mostly out of touch, fake and hyperbolic; this one is really well done and, I must say, really entertaining. Great cast and Director.
