This movie is very insightful regarding the subject of long term romantic relationships.It lets us peer into a good picture of compromises and sacrifices people MUST go thru in order for a long term romance to blossom.That is the only way.Love must be WORKED for.It takes effort and IS exhausting.It requires a lot of energy and time and it is totally up to the individuals involved to judge for themselves if the relationship is rewarding enough to continue on being worked on.Then the movie also deals with the issue of the finality of marriage commitments.This movie will only be enjoyed by people who are interested in peering into these subject matter.The movie forces you to think and unfortunately,the usual run of the mill general movie audience do not like insightful thinking movies.Also,intelligent African Americans are presented in the movie and unfortunately,the general run of the mill movie audience feel uncomfortable seeing intelligent,educated African American characters.It does not fit their narrow minded specific stereotype,thus giving their brains a short circuit of sorts.This is mainly why this movie is being unjustly under rated.Granted,the movie is not among the best all time,but it is fair for people who expect a peek into the love game,presented in a comedy/drama style,mainly through the eyes of young adult African American people.I like movies that give me insightful thinking presented entertainingly.And this movie certainly does that.The direction,cinematography,story and acting were all fair.The screenplay could have been done much better by adding more excitement and more visual setting/situations to add more power to the movie........
