This is the story of a fairly successful young black man, just shy of30 years old, who decided he needs to be less of a workaholic and meetand date women, with marriage and family as a goal.
He signs up for a dating service that is NOT online. It's an old-fashioned matchmaking type service that sets a person up with a memberof the opposite sex for dinner or coffee. They don't do a lot ofbusiness but they do have some success (a well-known actress becomesengaged after meeting someone through them, so that's a good sign!)
The young man has three friends and the movie is about them as much asit is about him. By the end of the movie, they have all found love(heterosexual love, no surprises there) but that's about as much of theplot that I'm going to give away.
There are some plot twists along the way that keep it interesting. Theacting is fine; I really believed these people might be friendly offscreen.
It ends with the 30th birthday party. It started with a night out,dancing at a club, so it seems to come full circle. There's anappearance by Johnny Gill, who had a hit song with Stacy Lattishaw,'Perfect Combination'.
Good movie - a surprising treat. The main character - so handsome! Theothers, not too shabby either!
a great low budget romantic comedy which is a good watch, anybodysaying this movie is awful is jaded, its no Oscar Hollywood movie, itssimilar in technical ability as most indie films yet the story isendearing, surprising and funny, it even has a beautifully shot lovescene. the cast is predominately black so reluctancy to like it isexpected but the only real flaw is lack of a good cinematographer, idhave done it for free. good film with a great cast the story is of ayoung successful man who wants to get a girl, along with his boys and achildhood ladyfriend (i know what your thinking) he goes on a journeyof discovery, finding out what they like and if a change is needed. Thefirst 10 minutes are the worst of the film, with uninspired framing,lazy editing and poor sound but then you get used to its non Hollywoodnature and settle in to its scenario. the characters are very likable,showing great chemistry and skills in their relatively undemandingroles. the movie has a few messages embedded also, noting identity andpride, but nothing too overt. i must stress this is a b-move so one youshould support its producers and two its quite accomplished albeit noartpiece its no ben & arthur either and shows passion from manyinvolved. this is my favourite movie this year buy it!!User: spamphan
Its hard for me to explain how bad this Movie is,so i will try and makeit easy by saying its terrible..acting,direction,scenery which spends90 percent of its time in a cheap office of some sort.Im not sure whythey really bothered making this.Somewhere,someone thought there was abuck to be made and got the go ahead. If anyone involved in this moviegoes onto greater things than peeling spuds i'd be very surprised andprobably buy a lottery ticket. I had read a review here and thepositives seemed to be enough for me to give this movie a go,the storyline seemed to be one that i would enjoy and i really was lookingforward to a nice night with a beer and pizza and having a laugh..notknowing that 90 minutes later even a bottle of scotch wouldn't havehelped this dog of a movie..stay away..go rent Attack of the KillerTomatoes,at least the laughs were intentional!
