Initially, Woo seems every bit the fun dating film that's guaranteed to give urban 20-somethings their six bucks of fulfillment. Unsurprisingly, it's no more than that, although at times its tenuous jokes add up to a bit less.

Movies like this don't really establish their characters and draw much of the humor out of their personalities; they go for quick payoffs, easy slapstick and in-jokes based on insults and code words.

The constant reliance upon unfunny, moronic humor sinks the project.

This Manhattan-based romantic comedy might be fun if it didn't hit you over the head with a sledgehammer every few minutes.

An incoherent romantic comedy whose sexy title character (played by Ms. Smith) is an unbearable, unfunny pain in the neck.

A painfully graceless comedy that reworks After Midnight, Blind Date and Booty Call into something monstrous and untoward.

A romantic comedy, it's such a sloppy mess that polishing it with all the Pledge in the world couldn't help brighten it up.

Equally unengaging are hero Tim (Davidson), the wimpish buppie who loves her, and his male buddies, who provide the requisite quota of chauvinism.

Boxoffice Magazine

What characterization there is consists of weak, stupid men empowered by dominant, predatory women, encased in witless, tasteless commercial rubbish.
Madeleine Williams

Boring, uninteresting and pointless, the film wastes both its talent and your time.

Although not quite enough to make the movie enjoyable, [Smith's] performance does give some respite to the audience, who has to endure every black and male stereotype in the book.

After a while, it all gets a bit repetitive, which is remarkable, given how short the film is.
| Original Score: 52/100

For all the generic plot gyrations, Pinkett Smith and Davidson turn in poised, resourceful performances.

Taken as a glimpse into the hectic, unforgiving world of date 'n' mate, Woo is a comparative lightweight, an easy, breezy cover girl on the make who fails to make you laugh much at all.
