An enormously good-natured film that looks at middle class African American young people as they come together for a friend's wedding. What I liked most about this film is that it's not stamped with ethnic stereotypes at every turn. These bright, funny, entertaining characters could be white, green or pink; they just happen to be black.
There's a stag party with hilarious results. The script allows
the players to echo it's amiable tone. This makes easy pickings
for the ensemble of young actors. Taye Diggs provides writer
Harper with a winning smile and some sheepishly mixed emotions
on the result of his book. Harold Perrineau is very sweet as
Mirch and Morris Chestnut looks and acts the part of a football
player with physical style. Terrence Howard adds the right
measure of hip provocateur. The ladies are an equally enchanting
and diverse mix of actresses. Nia Long plays the gal with the
most drive, Jordan, without giving up her femininity. Melissa
DeSousa is hilarious as Shelby, and Sanaa Lathan adds a stunning
presence as Robin, Harper's current lady.
