Something New isn't just silly, it's an embarrassment to people who are genuinely trying to level the racial playing field in America today.

Generally the story swings wildly from preachy to just plain silly. It is truly a story of missed opportunities.

Something hackneyed, trite and boring, you mean.
November 23, 2006
By and large this is a hollow, laugh-free zone paying lip service to the issue in trite, predictable fashion.

Anyone who finds something new in Something New is obviously looking a whole lot closer than the movie deserves.

This 'new romantic comedy' fails on all three counts:It's not all that funny, it's not very romantic, and it's certainly nothing new.

I suspect than a lot of audiences will find the serious nature of the subplot to be distracting.

Kenya is such a joyless creature it requires singular suspension of disbelief to accept that Brian Kelly, the white landscape architect, would stick around.

Aside from the political stuff, this is the same old same old that has been cluttering up stage and screen since at least the reign of King George II. It's not only not "something new" it's old hat.
February 3, 2006
This is an inept and unsubtle romantic fantasy about how black people and white people don't mix.
February 3, 2006
It sometimes seems at odds with itself, vacillating between a realistic presentation of the obstacles black professional women face finding a suitable mate and another bit of Hollywood fluff where their skin color is glossed over.

The race card is still in play no matter what the social strata, but the message gets lost in the medium of excessive cuteness and too many contrived disagreements in dialogue.
