Candace: I'm just saying, Jordan's good people, you should get to know her.
Robyn: What's to know? She's career-obsessed and lives on her BlackBerry.
Candace: True, but she's not some ideal from a piece of fiction. Now, her man, on the other hand, is iconic. Mmm. If I went that way, that's what I'd get. A tall, vanilla swagger latte. I like, I like, I like.

More drama than comedy
3 April 2015 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I started watching this movie thinking it was another black comedy (I love those) so I was a bit disappointed because there where not a lot of funny scenes (though Terrence Howard was funny as hell). After I realized it wasn't a laugh your ass off comedy there was a lot more drama. I must say that in the end I really enjoyed watching this, it just took me a moment to switch.

Only after watching this movie I read that it was a sequel. That answered a few of my questions about the character development and plot.

I really liked the plot though and the character development was good, so I'll be watching the 3rd movie when it comes out.

So if you're into black movies and don't mind drama this is one you should definitely watch.
