A Monster of a Sleeper...
28 December 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I lucked up on this movie while flipping through HBO one day. On first glance, I frowned up, because I thought it was going to be another one of those "formulaic black romances", complete with unfair stereotypes and your occasional shot of lovemaking. But...what the heck...I have no life....so I gave it a shot! What I saw completely blew me away. Hill Harper gives an excellent performance as Theodorous, a lovesick soul who falls for all the wrong women. As we follow Theodorous through his various hilarious exploits, the thing that struck me were his monologues. The writing was just solid...more solid than you would expect from this type of film...and whenever Theodorous goes on one of his rapid fire tangents trying to win over some poor, ATTACHED woman...you can't help but shake your head and realize that "Wow...this brother has got some game!" Needless to say, I love the film...it's a guilty pleasure of mine...and I'm currently trying to find this in DVD format so I can put it on my shelf right next to "Hav Plenty" and the few other intelligent African-American romantic comedies that I'm proud to say that I own.

One love, DVS
