When I first saw the trailer for Baby Boy, I couldn't wait for it to come out. I kept telling my girlfriend how I thought John Singleton had come back with a sure hit. After seeing Baby Boy, I was so disappointed. It was boring and the storyline was weak. He basically depicted the blackman as being a low life and a no good petty thug. I am Latino and I wouldn't appreciate someone categorizing me as that. Also, the women in this movie where dragged through the mud. They were perceived as stupid and as having no respect for themselves. John Singleton seems to have run out of material as he had to resort to the same kind of movie that first brought him success. The movie could have done without Snoop Doggs part as it was a waste of time. Jody (Tyrese)did not change at all through out the movie. At the end he was still what he began as, a baby boy. Nobody grew or became a better person in this entire movie. It insulted Black people and is a poor excuse for an urban drama. I like that gangsta $*@# too but this was sorry. I admit there were plenty of laughs and the directing by Singleton was excellent but not enough to call this a good movie.
