Meghie is adept at sliding between subplots and mixing her characters into talky combinations, all the better to maximize the film's slim 86-minute running time, but it's Zamata and her Zadie who steal nearly every moment.
Laced with tart humor and sharp observations about black female identity, the majority of them delivered with spiky insouciance by Sasheer Zamata.
The Weekend gets off to a decidedly rough start that eventually becomes just another part of the movie's shaggy dog lovability by which I was, at least partially, won over.
For those who saw Meghie's stellar debut "Jean of the Joneses," "The Weekend" is the proper follow-up, a brutally funny and whipsmart comedy that goes so many places that few others have, even though it is largely confined to one location.
What works so well in The Weekend is the hilarious and authentic script written by Stella Meghie.
Filmmaker Stella Meghie kicks The Weekend off with a strained, unfunny standup set from Zamata's character that instantly sets a tone of forced artificiality...
Luckily, Meghie and the cast's ability to tap into a great deal of humor with a whole lot of energy helps to minimize the cringeworthy aspect of some of the unfortunate circumstances the characters find themselves in.
Sasheer Zamata finally got a chance to deliver comedy in a way she wasn't able to do on SNL and we see her fully for the talented comedian that she is.
This is the ultimate date movie, if you like making fun of your ex's new lover.
SNL alum Zamata is a natural, bringing a sarcastic spontaneity and danger to her performance.
