Brilliant!
1 October 2007 | by cozyredcushionsSee all my reviews

I LOVED this movie. It was funny, smart, well-acted, well written, and new! It was so WONDERFUL to see a "black movie" this Unique and inventive. With a perspective that was both relatable and satirical characters were sometimes realistic and sometimes exaggerated, but the performances were as a whole fantastic. I'm sorry to see this movie get any bad reviews because as a black viewer so bored with so many tired clichés in films, it was so refreshing to see this movie so intelligently display a new perspective that I related to on so many levels. Above all this movie made me laugh to the point of tears SEVERAL times throughout feature. That in itself is enough to get a good rating from me. I applaud Hadjii and I am so grateful that he was able to make this movie and I encourage other black filmmakers to keep trying to make the movies that they want to make that step out of the box and shed light on the infinite black perspectives that have yet to be seen on screen.
