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.
