Audience Reviews for Something New

    Super sweet romantic and funny I laughed a lot and got teary eyed and even cried.

    It was interesting to see how raceism is portrayed from another point of view. It's sweet. Cute. You knew how it was going to end as soon as it started, or well after Simon Baker's character met Sanaa Lathan's. There's not much to say about it really. It's not great. It's not terrible. It's...meh. I feel indifferent towards it. When I was looking it up here to review it I realized that I had forgotten it's name, the characters names...pretty much everything but the fact that Simon Baker was in it! So to me...it's mediocre. It doesn't leave an impression because it's bland. Sort of boring with a well-known, pretty over used and predictable plotline. Simon get's a star though just because I like him so much and he was the only reason why I actually sat down to watch it in the first place, well him and Donald Faison.

    I caught this one on last night while surfing the channels, glad I came upon it. It was a really great movie. A love story between two people of different race and backgrounds coming together in the end, it was wonderful.

    I really liked this movie a lot. It was a nice mix of romantic and a little drama. Great chemistry.
