Storyline

Love for Sale is a romantic comedy about Trey (Jackie Long), a twenty-something delivery guy that can't seem to catch a break. Trey's whole life is in shambles- no money for college, girls don't know he exists and his uncle's recording studio is about to be foreclosed. After a failed attempt to talk to the girl of his dreams, Kiely (Mya), Trey encounters the incredibly, beautiful Katherine (Melyssa Ford) while on delivery. The older woman falls for him despite their age difference. This seemingly perfect development soon proves to just complicate Trey's life even further. Written by Anonymous

Okay.
19 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In regards to the foreclosure comment, granted this was not Star Wars or The Matrix, but it didn't really seem that low budget to me.

I don't think Mia would do a movie for $50,000.

Perhaps you just don't like black people in light of your black movie / budget comments, but if you weren't looking for a romantic African American comedy, you probably shouldn't have chosen to watch this movie.

I don't know if it was the "Love" reference in the title, the genre listing of "comedy", or the rich caricatures within the African American community portrayed that you didn't get, but I thought the movie did an alright job in what it was intended to do.

Although Melyssa Ford did an excellent job in the film, particularly during her emotional breakdown scene, I think this movie offers more to look at than just the women as you put it.

Lastly, I think it is exactly because the black film industry is not exactly overflowing with new releases, that efforts such as these should be lauded, without having to be compared to 90's movie clichés.
