Basically, I'll See Any Black Romantic Comedy

More

My comments about movie theaters aside, I'm going to see this. I don't like the trailer. But I do like Queen Latifah. And I love the Negroes at Court Street in Bk. ("Bitch got thrown! Bitch got thrown!!") I actually troll the bad black rom-com DVDs in search of half-decent material. Every once in a while you come with a goodie. Breaking All The Rules is really underrated. And the world will not be truly postracial until you see a flick like The Seat Filler is in theaters, and The Ugly Truth is straight to DVD.

Born in 1975, the product of two beautiful parents. Raised in West Baltimore -- not quite The Wire, but sometimes ill all the same. Studied at the Mecca for some years in the mid-'90s. Emerged with a purpose, if not a degree. Slowly migrated up the East Coast with a baby and my beloved, until I reached the shores of Harlem. Wrote some stuff along the way.
