Despite its ungainly title, Darnell Martin's debut is a lovely, well-rounded comedy-drama.

A light feminist streak runs through this tale of woman search for self-fulfillment by Darnell Martin, one of the gifted African American directors to emerge in the 1990s.

Audience Reviews for I Like It Like That

Crap. How did this end up as a Film Festival pic. The characters have the complexity of cardboard as they meet stereotypes well.
