An Admirable Attempt
18 December 2016 | by shellybell-91129See all my reviews

What I appreciate most about this movie is that they wrote black characters with complexity instead of stereotypical traits and a story of stereotypical themes. Unfortunately, the attempts at dark humor were off by a country mile. We have all seen this movie before . Like, 'This is Where I leave You" and just about every movie Woody Allen has ever made. Now I get the importance of comedic timing, because just about every actor in this movie completely lacks it. The main character comes off as whinny and the story just missed the mark overall. I do appreciate the attempt, because we need more movies like this with people of color.
