Critic Reviews for Hav Plenty

All Critics (22) | Top Critics (7)

This all-black screwball comedy, about the fables and foibles of black middle-class urbanites, is well constructed, but it lacks style and polish to make it really work

Formulaic, but it has plenty to like.

Cherot's considerable charm as writer and star compensate for some rough patches.

Ah, love! Ah, black stereotypes! Why is it so hard to portray the black middle-class and the rich with any dignity?

Audience Reviews for Hav Plenty

I thought this movie was original and funny, though many people will not like the acting and some of black middle-class stereotypes. Meanwhile, all that aside I think this is a fun refreshing movie as far as the dialouge is concerned. Many will hate it but I love how scott use his own brand of self-deprivation to create laughs.
