Some funny moments and a couple of touching scenes.
2 March 2002 | by powergeekSee all my reviews

I saw this movie at the AMC Empire in Times Square right after 9/11. The theater was almost empty. Don't worry...you didn't miss anything great. Same ole same ole white/black thing, although there were some clever moments and a few times I was touched. The lead male, Will Wallace, did a good job (I just saw him in "The Thin Red Line")as did the lead girl's father, Robert Wisdom (I just saw in "Storytelling"). I also thought the bitter sister was rather talented although I've never seen her before. The lead girl was weak and flat as were many of the other characters.

The direction seemed amateurish as well. One shot in particular I will even go so far as to define as shocking: we view a table full of black family members (including the girlfriend) from the white boyfriend's POV. When we cut to the boyfriend, we cut to a 2 shot of the boyfriend AND the girlfriend...YES!...it's true...It actually happened that way! I almost chocked on my popcorn on that one!

Overall, I left with a nice feeling...especially with the recent tragedies. If you are bored and looking for something to see, I guess I'd recommend it. Don't expect "Dr. Zhivago".
