Proceed With Caution Apr 11, 2008
This movie would be recommended if you have not watched a movie in your life. I should have read the prior review before purchasing it. The main character was so skittish and flighty that she made me angry. When she ran out of the church on her groom, I realized they could have gotten another actress to fill that role.
The whole time during this movie, all the actors/actresses were behaving like they knew they were on cam. No natural acting abilities whatsoever. The plot could have come alive had it not been for the amatuers carrying out the acting. And where was the drama and suspense? And the music was horrible! Somebody needs to tell the producer that music plays a large portion on movies. Leave out that music, choose better performers and tighten up the plot (i.e. be more creative) and you could have had a 4-star movie. Even if a plot is a repeat or parallels past movies, you could use your own imagination and so forth and at least make it "look" original. I truly do not recommend this to anyone. This movie reminds me of a bad joke!
So Bad, it's Good Sep 27, 2007
Low budget is no excuse for making a truly bad film. 'Clerks' was low budget. 'Memento' was low budget. These films have gone on to win a great deal of critical acclaim despite their limited production costs, unlike this film which falls solidly into the category of "it's so bad, it's good." It's a Madea film without Madea. The 'jazz singer' storyline seems tacked on and totally unbelievable considering that the lead actress is obviously not a singer. The music performed here could hardly be dubbed as "jazz." It's cheaply produced R&B background music set to chincy Yamaha drum track presets. This is the type of film I would actually buy just to have a good laugh with friends and family. It's that bad. I give it two stars because at least it was entertaining to watch--in a 'train wreck' sort of way. It's really just another "I can't find a good black man" story that's been done to death in recent years. Only this one is done from a Christian perspective, which, if you're just hard up for entertainment, might be considered a good thing. It borrows heavily (read: steals) from mainstream films such as Runaway Bride and Waiting to Exhale, and rehashes those plots into something utterly bland and uninspiring. Bad acting, bad storyline, bad music...view at your own risk.
