Quotes

Mr. Donaldson: There is no reason you can't do something for your people. You could do something really great. Historic, maybe. I mean, we're talking the Obamas. The Williams sisters. And like Tiger Woods.
Langston: Well, if, uh... you're referring to the American people... then, yes, I have every intention of making the American people very proud.

User Reviews

OK-ish
17 October 2013 | by cinematic_aficionadoSee all my reviews

A story about baggage, the emotional type that people carry for not conforming to society's norms. The film deals with the concept of marriage, how we all are made for it and the attractive leading lady has somehow not tied the knot though keenly looking for her Mr Right and though she went far, she seemed to miss what is good and near. Whilst in the quest, she discovers her no-no's in men and how once someone is an ex, it is best he stays an ex.

Ultimately, the question has to arise: do people marry because they want to and are committed to it or because they have to?

Whilst it offers a charming and pleasant experience it is not inventive as a story, succumbing to the rom-com principle of Mr & Mrs perfect live happily ever after. Not a bad experience for viewers who go in couples.
