Bildungsroman disguised as rom-com, the refreshing script much more concerned with its heroine's emotional arc and personal growth than her ultimate relationship status.
Unfortunately, instead of coming across as a warm throwback, Nappily Ever After is a romantic comedy saddled with a reductive understanding of black womanhood without enough cast chemistry or beauty to distract us.
Nappily Ever After is as much a polemic as it is anything else.
Nappily Ever After can be seen as a comedy of entanglements and also as a social criticism. [Full review in Spanish]
There is a strangely regressive feminism that drives Violet's journey, and almost mockingly critiques her behavior.
Sticks too closely to romantic comedy cliches without being funny and fails to tackle the real obstacle to the main character's complete empowerment.
Romantic dramedy with positive messages, language, sex.
It's light and charming, an evergreen love story produced by an intelligent and thoughtful producer, Tracey Bing.
The entirely-too-safe comedy doesn't entirely work in plotting or script, but the film still feels vital in its message.
In the end, it's Lathan's show, and she carries it strongly, playing Violet's self-doubt and perfectionism as a symptom, not the disease.
A listless rom-com that's more empowering than entertaining.
Nappily Ever After is a story that we may have seen before in one form or another - but is still one worth retelling in its own way.
