Messy and tawdry, this ambitious film proved to be Matty Rich's sophomore jinx.

I really enjoyed this movie for some reason. It's one of my favorites. I think it's a great flick; funny, romantic, & entertaining..I love how Larenz tate's character transforms throughout the movie...

I loved this movie i really did. Every character had his or her own characteristics, the settings were beautiful, and the smooth jazzy feel of the story kept it flowing like a river. I believe this movie was artistic, fun, entertaining, and I actually felt sad when the movie ended. Because this is a review I have to show the pros and cons too though. The main part that I didn't like about this movie was how the f word was thrown in so many times, that made a great entertaining PG-13 movie into a barely on the edge R rated movie. Because of the cussing, it does show that the writers weren't holding back which is something I have to admire though. Also there is how Pinkett's charcter Lauren never seems to have a proper exit to the movie. Other than those cons, the movie was brilliant and I might have to buy the DVD.
