Brown Sugar is hot! I appreciate the writer and producer's creative accomplishment in producing a quality story for this genre. It is refreshing. Taye Diggs showed us another dimension of his talent in this film, by revealing his genuine sense of humor. Sanaa Lathan was captivating in the film. Mos Def proved yet again there is absolutely no limit to this man's ability. Queen Latifah...well...that's all I have to say...I think people immediately want to love her. She appears to be a very giving actress. Nicole Ari Parker can't help but look silky fine! The story was another step forward for films in this genre, it's too bad this script will most likely go unnoticed for Best Screenplay honors. Films like this are ahead of their time.
