How did this film get a 5.whatever rating?
21 June 2002 | by TheQuietStormSee all my reviews

I'm sorry, no offense to all those who thought highly of this flick, but lets be serious; "a 5 rating?" I can't name one thing that is good about this movie. First off the directing; the director didn't set up not one interesting shot. He also didn't coerce his actors into making better acting choices. The cinematography; I like the fact that they had utilized the video format instead waiting to obtain enough money to shoot it on film. But they should've shot the film like as if it were film, or maybe they don't know about the five c's of cinematography: camera angles, continuity, cutting, close-ups, and composition. The acting: "WHACK!!!!!" The acting sucked. The main character did all right, but even he was trying too hard. The rest of the cast was the worse but maybe you can blame that on the lame dialogue, which brings me to the horrible writing. The writing; "you got to be kidding me." The characters were just as weak as the dialogue. And why all these films supposedly portraying black American life is usually with a wedding in them? I can go on and on. The bottom line, this movie is "whack!" Out of ten stars I gave this film 1 (awful) and I grade it with a big, fat, red "F!"
