Funny romantic black comedy
8 June 2002 | by (Woodbridge,VA) – See all my reviews

Sprung was one of the funniest black romantic comdies releaded in 1997. While it's not good as the vastly superior Love Jones it does have a lot of charm. I remeber seeing this film after my first high school sweetheart broke up with me. The prison line up scene is very funny. Joe Torry and Paula Jai Parker steal almost every scene there in with their funny one-liners. Director Rusty Cundiff is very taltented and it's a shame he's hasn't made any films since this one.
