Critic Reviews for Premium

  • In gasoline terms, Premium isn't. But the romantic dramedy has some high-octane emotional moments, thanks to writer-director Pete Chatmon's wise dissection of the games one-time lovers play.

    March 1, 2007 | Rating: B-
  • Premium's believable moments slightly prevail over its inauthentic ones, helping writer-director Pete Chatmon's modestly played drama just barely cross over the brink of compelling naturalism.

    February 20, 2007 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Standout thesping by stars Dorian Missick and Zoe Saldana, along with fully fleshed-out secondary roles, distinguish Pete Chatmon's gentle comedy.

    August 4, 2006 | Full Review…
  • Chatmon reworks many elements of Robert Townsend's erratic 1987 film Hollywood Shuffle into a fluent story that favors character over satire.

    August 4, 2006 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Has a problem with its slack and meandering narrative...but it's still well worth a look for its generous wit, casual insightfulness, and love of humanity.

    April 2, 2007 | Full Review…
  • A high-stakes romantic comedy which pits a bourgie brother against another from the 'hood who knows how to keep it real.
