"Fresh Air"
Verified purchase
NO this movie is not suited for the "blockbuster" audience..and that's what I love about it. This is (in my opinion) "good" acting. The actors& actresses sometimes over do their characters just to make their personalities resonate all the more...I love it. Nah, no explosions, passionate sex scenes, or shootings...these are like a previous reviewer said, "regular" people in an everday setting that somehow can pull you right in. Hill Harper showed out in this movie...he's absolutely amazing! As well as all of the other actors and actreses...it doesn't feel HOllywood...it feels as though these people enjoyed making this movie, and put their all into it.

GREAT MOVIE!!! And definitely "Fresh Air" from this stuffy Cinema Blockbuster, typical storyline plot, pulling from a pool of 25 actors actresses...movies.

It was fun watching this on DTV, so we ordered to look at it again and again. Unfortunately, I didn't notice I was ordering a VHS tape. Still had fun looking at it again.

Hill Harper, makes this movie
Verified purchase
This movie depicts what everyone has had a taste of at one point "Loving Jezebel". Falling for someone that is not theirs. The movie isn't over the top. The cast play the parts well and Hill Harper makes the character easy to relate to.

Very Disappointing Romantic Comedy
You want to really like this film. As a change of pace, here is Theodorous Melville, an African American man (Hill Harper) that is not hopelessly cool or in control. His character is solidly middle class and makes no issue of the fact that he's a product of an interracial marriage. It also has an appealing premise about a man who is only able to meet women romantically attached to other men (i.e., "Jezebels").
Unfortunately, Harper's performance (particularly in the beginning scenes) is so mannered and cartoonish, that the movie becomes almost unwatchable. It's not enough just to make him awkward, he practically has be slobbering at the mouth like a baby. This lack of subtlety is probably one of the reasons why this film performed poorly during its brief theatrical run.
On the upside, the many women in the film are attractive and some even give interesting performances. Nicole Ari Parker is fun as Frances, the kookiest of the women that Theodorous meets. Laurel Holloman is also fine as Samantha, one of the first of his Jezebels.
With a plethora of generic 'hood movies out there, one can appreciate something a little different. However, most of what we get here is just plain silly. As a result, a lot of talent is wasted in this film and so is the viewer's time.
Writer/director Kywn Bader seems to be starting on the right track with LOVING JEZEBEL, but somehow got derailed after leaving the station. Hopefully, he will have a little more faith in his material next time and tell his story with a lighter touch.
