Storyline

Jay Brooks is that black guy who digs indie rock, graphic novels, and dates white chicks. After a slew of bad break-ups, Jay gives up white women, "cold turkey," and he goes on a mission: "Operation Brown Sugar". But because Jay doesn't fit the "brotha" stereotype, he fails miserably with the "sistahs." Then he meets the dynamic Catherine, a misunderstood "Half-rican Canadian", who's as righteously quirky as he is. To win her heart, Jay must confront his fears as he realizes commitment is a bigger issue than race. Written by Anonymous

What We Need More Of....
22 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Why 9 out of 10? Because we don't see enough depictions of Black men like this in the movies. This movie won't win any awards, Jay is a nerd and goofy, but this is a really cool movie. I am so tired of all the romantic comedy movies going to the same "Adonis" white guy or the same goof-ball comedic white guy. Black men are more complex than all the ghetto-bangin' bull that we always get on screen. There were no guns, no woman got called, "bitch" and no scenes of police arrests. Yes, this movie is entertaining and worth giving a view. The title is more of a commentary on the "misfit" Black guy who is really good at the core, but just lost in the shuffle of stereotypes that seek to define him without giving him the benefit of the doubt. Stereotypes that he feels that he must maintain in order to have a sense of his own Blackness. In the end he has to decide whether to cross that chasm and go for something true or stay stuck in his own comfortable adolescent musings. Give this movie a try and leave your preconceptions at the door.
