I've been watching Psych on Amazon so I saw this pop up with Dule Hill and thought I would check it out to see how he was in a different format. He was much the same in this as he is on Psych. Also I kept expecting him to be the love interest but no it's Joel from Parenthood played by Sam Jaeger. Dule has a short scene and he shares a large part of the movie cover and Sam who is second most scenes is not even on the cover. Gabrielle Union is well known and also on he cover as is the cheating boyfriend in this movie. I am glad to see I am not the only one who noticed and commented on this misleading picture!!
I did enjoy this movie a lot more than I expected. Sam Jaeger is the best part of this movie and kept me watching until the end.

No Subtitles But Understandable

I've been looking for this movie ever since it came out in 2011. I watched it in a hotel once but never got the name of it. Just last year after searching the net for it I finally found it. At 1st I wasn't a THOUSAND percent sure if this was it, because it didn't show much in the trailer from my memory. But I'm so thankful I took a chance on buying it from here and I love it, it's going into my movie collections. It also arrived a day early than it says it would, good job. I gave it a 4 stars because there's no subtitles in it, but I'm cool with that. At least there's really not much to go on as moving around on TV. This brings back lots of memories when this happened to me (how the story of this movie went). This was popular back then before "Facebook", "Tinder", and so on became on internet...it was just all about talking and sharing over the phone. I love the ending of this movie, it was sweet and amazing.

Great play on words with the title. This movie was excellent! It was cute, humorous, funny, relatable, and magnificently portrayed of how we never know what life can and will throw our way. All of the acting was great and the best feel good movie I could have chosen for myself to watch. I experienced many emotions while watching the movie because there were so many parts that I could truly relate to.Robinne Lee truly made her character believable and Gabriele Union was hilarious in her role. Makes you realize how important it is to discover what makes you happy and how important it is to go after those things. After all life is short and time flies by. [[ASIN:B00BSBWCJW Miss Dial]]

Great movie. It was refreshing to see characters talk long enough to determine if they liked each other instead of hopping into bed because of lust. Great metaphors. When we don't trust or develop our instincts we convince ourselves that things are better than they are. The main characters job was to placate customers which in tern made her placatable.
I am okay with being pulled in by two of my favorite actors Dule Hill and Gabriel Union to learn a life lesson. I loved how Sam Jaeger's character talked about how people who love Olive Garden think they are eating authentic Italian food. Shout out to O.G. I love the Zuppa Toscana, stuffed mushrooms, and calamari. Do people even wait for or seek their best (without a side chick or side dude) anymore?

Misleading cover
Verified purchase
The cover of the movie is misleading those characters aren't main characters at all. The movie is about a black woman getting with a white man.

Pleasant Surprise
Verified purchase
I saw Dule Hill on the cover and had to see it. He's in it for literally about a minute, but the whole story is cute! It's actually an interracial love story and I really liked it! My mom, sis and I watched it and we were ready to see a bad movie and it ended with us wanting to own it. It has a few bad words, but never gets dirty or unbearable. I was really waiting to see an awful film but found that this is a well done low budget film. Lots of cameo's from working actors you've seen around and the main guy in this story (Sam Jaeger)is in another independent film I saw that was really cute too called "Take Me Home" and I recommend that as well.

I actually stopped the movie to check the reviews and, then, decided to continue watching it. I am glad that I did. I am a Gabrielle Union fan. And, I am now a fan of Robinne Lee. Most of all, I loved the diverse cast used within this film. It is a really cute movie with a message. .

Just happened on this because could not find anything else to watch. Was quite surprised. It was nice and had a lot of known actors in it.
