If you haven’t gone to see this movie, it is a great girlfriends night out film and a good date night movie. Queen Latifah did an excellent job and surprisingly Common did a great job. He was actually a believable basketball player, with the exception of the Dave Chapelle like dunks (look up Dave Chapelle dunking while he is dressed up like Prince- classic and funny!!!).
Common is pretty ripped and very slim. They say the camera adds 15lbs. If that is true, Common is tiny.
I am not sure if he actually plays that piano, so if he doesn’t you wouldn’t know it from watching this film. There are some must have Jazz painting hanging in his music room. I especially loved the John Coltrane portrait.
There are several cameos from NBA stars such as Dewayne Wade and Dwight Howard. I even saw John Legend in the stands at the game. Phylicia Rashad stars as Common’s protective mother and she had every right to be protective. – James Pickens (Chief Webber – Grey’s Anatomy) stars opposite of Pam Grier as Latifah’s parents.
The theatre crowd reaction was wonderful in the film. People were clapping and gasping… This movie really draws you in to the point where you feel the need to talk to the screen and try to help the main characters realize that love is in full bloom.
This was really a feel good movie and worth the $10 ticket…
My rating A—/ B++
