Sad But True
26 May 2004 | by (Washington, DC) – See all my reviews

I watched the film with low expectations and ended up laughing out loud. Tracy Morgan's standup routines in the film are among the funniest in any film I've watched in years. Funny because they were so true. He slams women who don't cook, clean their own houses, etc. ...and it really hit home...I'm a 30-yr-old professional woman who's guilty, guilty, guilty of all of the above! It's a great movie to watch with friends and to watch on a Friday night. While none of my friends experienced any anguish over turning 30, nearly every professional, single, 30-something woman I know will relate to this film. For example, we want to be taken to nice restaurants but don't cook homemade meals more than once a week,which is probably what our mate wants. And we all know some poor woman who's DATED the same man for years and years...with no engagement ring on the horizon. Yikes! This film is easy to relate to and great fun.
