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

Great, fun hilarious film
12 June 2007 | by See all my reviews

I saw this at the Houston World Fest. It was very very funny. I loved every moment of it. It was my favorite film at the festival. The casting and acting were terrific. I loved the script and the direction was perfect. I love movies that feel alive and spontaneous, that move with a perfect choreography. And that's what this film did for me.

The perfect place to see this film is on the big screen and I truly hope it gets its chance. The audience who attended the screening with me were very vocal in their enjoyment and enthusiasm for the film. Huge applause and an active Q&A. I left the theater feeling very good.

I thought the romantic relationship between the leads had a lot of heat. I am very fond of romantic comedies and believed these characters. I rooted for the romance and felt their pain, which is what I'm supposed to do in a good romantic comedy. I also enjoyed the subplot with the white roommate becoming an expert at Hip Hop.
