Pretty decent comedy
Verified purchase
This was a pretty decent movie. I am not a big fan of movies but occasionally I need to zone out and so I decided to watch a movie. I chose this because it had Jamie Foxx and Nia Long and Jamie is typically funny or stupid so I thought I would enjoy it. I was pretty clean for the most part and if you like comedies I think you would probably enjoy this. It wasn't a comedy that made me laugh out loud but things typically have to be pretty darn funny for me to actually laugh out loud. This movie had moments that made me snicker and giggle under my breath but in all fairness I was doing other things while the movie was playing. Maybe if it had my full and utmost attention I would have found it even funnier. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a pretty clean (it's not squeaky clean if that's what you're looking for but that so rare and that's why I don't really watch movies) and humorous comedy.[[ASIN:B00ANKTJ54 Held Up]]

Goofy, for sure, but pretty darn funny!

It's different from most "rom coms", by a big stretch, and it keeps you laughing, and occasionally cringing, what's not to love...

Watch it as a very last resort ONLY!

Not a very good comedy. There were only a couple "Ha Ha" moments by Jamie Foxx. The rest of the cast was mediocre at best and a poor storyline and direction did not help. I was waiting for the movie to improve as the story moved forward but it never did and only got worse. Which makes me wonder why I sat though this poor movie? It was only due to the fact that I was sick and was getting my much needed rest to recover which allowed me to watch this movie in its entirety without feeling the need that I was wasting precious time.

A nice romantic comedy
Verified purchase
An early Jamie Foxx movie. A nice romantic comedy. Not too much bad language, for those of you that don't like to hear that. Also, a lot of people doing nice things for each other, something I remember from my youth.

Fun couple movie

Light comedy of course you assume because Jamie Foxx is in it, great movie to watch with your spouse. I thoroughly enjoyed watching it at work in between calls :)

"OK nobody move!" but go ahead and laugh!!

NOT sophisticated humor, but funny stuff with various characters showing their "good people" side sprinkled throughout. Some movies I'll watch again and again. This is one.
