A playfully sparring gender politics piece that may have made no impression critically, but has trended via a cult audience. Taraji P. Henson, Kelly Rowland, Romany Malco, Terence Jenkins, Gabrielle Union, Keri Hilson and Kevin Hart all star. In the courting scene, plays and counter-plays abound until the defenses of a psyche are broken and truth remains. Fairly standard rom-com territory, but with an edge.
They used a dumb Bill Belichik metaphor in this movie, so I will use one of my own. This movie is like Wes Welker's dropped passed in Superbowl XLVI. Maybe it could've lead to something spectacular, but they lost control of it somewhere and they came up with something way less thrilling instead.
Well... in fact this is funny as hell, with a great cast (on both sides) who also provides different angles of romance (engaging, being in love and so on). A movie with such a shiny R&B/Soul/Funk soundtrack. This is a movie to entertain and really does that with pride. Maybe some of all cinephiles has not the gut to real aprecciate a movie like this kind of afro-rom-com... but this was awesome!!!
