Enjoyable, positive message
17 November 2014 | by See all my reviews

I stumbled across this movie on HBO. I hadn't heard of it before, but I found it enjoyable and uplifting. I was surprised to see it got such low ratings online. I must conclude that haters gonna hate. Monique is really a great actress, funny and able to bring depth of feeling. It had a positive message about loving yourself no matter what society says. No, it's not a masterpiece of cinema, but compared to other romantic-comedies, it's better than many.

I'd take Monique and her team over Adam Sandler/Drew Barrymore/Jennifer Anniston/Judd Apatow nonsense. Those movies ultimately reinforce a white-male dominated status quo.
