Did You Know?


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 »

I should have stuck with my instincts and stayed on the toilet instead of going to the movies to see this
3 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is about as good as what would have been found in the toilet anyway! Perhaps the most racist movie I have seen in my life. Examples: 1. Usher's favorite restaurant is a fried chicken place, where he orders "the usual", which turns out to guessed it, fried chicken and collard greens

2. Although neither Usher nor his friends are gangsters in the movie, it seems that the only things black people use as currency during card games are guns.

3. "I heard black men can dance" 4. All Italians are mobsters. 5. I like Usher's little minstrel show dance at the end of the movie. Overall, I was disappointed with myself for donating any money to this racist cause. I will never again watch an Usher movie unless he puts on blackface and admits that In the Mix was about as racist as the KKK would hope it to be.
