Movie Info

If love is an adventure, it's one yet to be embarked upon by Kenya Denise McQueen. A beautiful L.A. career woman, Kenya works as a senior manager at a prestigious accounting firm, and is on the verge of making partner. But she has yet to find her own partner and a fulfilling personal life. It's not that she's stopped looking; her (mental) checklist is at the ready. After another Valentine's Day spent working late, Kenya agrees to a blind date with Brian Kelly, a sexy and free-spirited landscape architect who turns out to be not exactly what she'd pictured for herself. Then again, she does need the yard of her new house fixed up. Her girlfriends Cheryl, Suzzette, and Nedra are there for her with advice, while Cheryl's new beau Walter shares a male perspective with Brian. Kenya's socially prominent parents Joyce and Edmond and womanizing younger brother Nelson also voice their own opinions. But it's when her perfect match, Mark, enters the picture that Kenya is truly thrown into confusion. Ultimately, Kenya has to decide for herself and follow her heart -- no matter where it takes her.

    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.
