Robin Givens makes an already funny and charming film funnier and more charming.
"Flip The Script," by and of itself, is an intensely humorous and greatly likable film. The male actors, led by Miguel A. Nunez, Jr., are deftly engaging and earn quite a lot of hearty laughs. The script by Tia Yoka McMillan gives the actors a large amount of funny business to handle. Terrah Bennett Smith, as director, always keeps the proceedings amiably light and chugging along. Yet the leading drawing card, the Number One attraction is Robin Givens's performance as Rain Jones. From her very first scene, where she adroitly juggles (concealed) awakened passion and (feigned) off-hand casualness during her telephone conversation with Nunez' character through ingratiatingly interacting with her "homegirl" buddy, portrayed by Jazmin Lewis, to where she at last openly and movingly acknowledges to Nunez the love she has always felt for him and agrees to marry him, Robin hits all the right notes. It is her plush beauty, her stylish charm, and her high-class intelligence that have us rooting for her and that easily make her the most appealing and sympathetic character in the picture. It is this flick, "Boomerang," and her made-for-TV film "The Penthouse" that clearly prove that Robin Givens is fully deserving of the title of Ms. Contemporary Black Hollywood.
