Trivia

To be more accurate in his role as Dolly's protector, Usher Raymond consulted Elijah Shaw, his longtime personal bodyguard. Elijah, who spent most of his time keeping screaming fans away from location shoots, was dragged on set for multiple sessions of "what would you do if..." His name appears in the credits as "Personal Security." See more »

Excellent escapist tosh
29 May 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A lot of the reviews for this film have been negative, which I am guessing is because a lot of those who are drawn to watch are likely to be fans of Usher, R&B & RAP. Never having seem Usher and not being a fan of that kind of music I didn't bring that baggage with me when I watched it. I found the film to be formulaic, predictable escapist fun. The script was OK but the acting was solid and I found Usher to be extremely watchable. In the Mix is more '13 Going 30' or 'Freaky Friday' - the kind of film I can enjoy with my late teen aged daughter. For those of you wanting a serious, gritty film as vehicle for your musical heroes, go for Boyz N The Hood, not an escapist comedy such as In The Mix - it is a very watchable film.
