Now, my only criticism is the portrayal of white women.

I'm sure you think I'm a racial activist by now (LOL), but I'm really not. The Julie Benz character is portrayed as this subservient female who's supposed to get Bellamy (who plays her lover) a sandwich whenever she wants, pour him a glass of wine whenever she wants and do all these things, 'cause apparently white women will do anything a man tells her to do, as opposed to black women who put up a fight.

Bill Bellamy (fellow stand-up comedian) is also funny as pretty much the philosopher of the group.

He also gets the chance to show off his talent as a dramatic actor.

Films like Hype Williams' "Belly" are one step away from minstrelsy, except minstrelsy was created by white people.

The movie is about friendship, commitment, temptation, love, honesty, all the things that go into a serious relationship. I like the way the actors talk like real people, and not actors maneuvered by the script like chess pieces. Not to sound preachy, but it's nice that every once in a while a film comes along to portray African-Americans in a positive light.

And it's done in a way that's funny and insightful. How often do we see a film (directed by an African-American) where the central (black) characters are doctors and lawyers?

On the subject of mother-son interactions, he has a nice, subtlely powerful scene where he confronts his Mom about her lack of showing her feelings around him. Finally, Morris Chestnut gives another fine performance as a pediatrician/cassanova, who falls for one of his patient's sisters (the beautiful Gabrielle Union).

Of course, I can't leave Clifton Powell off the list.
