I made the mistake of buying this movie before I'd seen it. Because I opened it, I can't take it back to the store. Listening to a friend, I bought this movie thinking it was good, I mean look at all the good actors in it? "A Good Man Is Hard To Find" = "A Good Script Is Hard To Find." This movie was aimless, all over the place and I had to force myself to watch all of it. Weak, weak, weak.

First of all, their son was older than they were. You remember how Cuba
Gooding, Jr. looked too old to be Laurence Fishbourne's son in "Boyz In The Hood"? Well, the son looked like he was in his late 20's and his parents looked like they were in their early 30's so they obviously had him when they were six making him a biological miracle.

This movie is slow moving, had poorly written scenes, left too many strings untied, and there was too much talent wasted on this film. Also, the title of the movie had nothing to do with its content. It should have been titled "Boring Movie" or "Wasted Talent".

I gave this movie to the friend who suggested it. I hope she makes it a happy home because it would only be in my way and take up space.

...but apparently a good movie is too! In spite of the caliber of the featured actors and actresses, I was left a bit lost and confused in the end.

Let me begin by saying Hill Harper did an excellent job as the charming-turned-cold boss, as did Melissa de Sousa and Mel Jackson as the high maintenance best friend and Renaissance man respectively.

I was thoroughly disappointed with the choppy story line that seemed to jump from one extreme to another, enabling most of the characters to fully develop. Also, some scenes (such as the throwing of the liquor bottle, the son fighting with his father) were overdramatized to the point of being ridiculous and ultimately irrelevant.

I understand the multiple messages that the movie conveyed in regards to being faithful, the importance of building a strong spiritual foundation within yourself and your family, and appreciating the things that you have instead of lusting after the things you don't need, but I just expected more.

I recommend renting the movie first before buying it; it should be available at your local video store.

I'm sorry..this movie lacked the hype I expected. I think the director took away the talent these true actors and actresses had to offer. But then again most of CodeBlack entertainment films are poor in quality and production.

I love Golden Brooke and Darrin Dewin Henson (he played a much better church man in Fabric of a Man) but this was a dud for me. It had its moments here and there but most of the movie was very predictable and seem to drag on. It lacked any type of oomph and the moments you were left wanting to know more it just cut to the next scene, and never went back to wrap that issue up. Sorry this one didn't do it for me.

I was surprised! This was actually a well put together film. Strong actors really made this film pop for me. Real situations and real reactions made it more real for me. Not over/under done. JUST RIGHT! My guy D.D. Henson and my girl Golden Brooks, did their thing!

First off this is a terrible title for the movie!!!! The main character is a good man, but he didn't get what he needed to do, and neither did the female lead. The editing or the script or the direction of this movie needed a bandaid because I ended up turning this movie off, which saddened me b/c most of the cast are my favorite actors/actresses. I didn't get why someone had an attitude one minute and then there was a clip of the same person two seconds later wanting to get it on, that was DUMB.

I don't knwo some movies there doesn't need to be a story, you just want to see your favorite actor/tress on screen, but this movie, i was like what is the point of this movie? church, love, what? 2 many subplots, the lighting was good for a low budget movie.

This movie was just OK. Considering the actors involved, I expected better acting. A movie with the title "A Good Man is Hard to Find", should have focused more on what a "good man" endures and tries to accomplish in his everyday life.
The lead male character is a blue-collar worker who is married to a newly accomplished MBA graduate. The husband has paid for her education and at one point in the movie she practically emasculates him by saying that his brain is small and she should have never married a blue-collar man. Oddly enough, her despicable behavior in this scene is never addressed again in the movie. This is one of the things that is experienced by many good men in the African-American community. A man who tries to be the best man he can be, but is constantly berated by his woman, because he drives a bus, or cleans floors. The movie could have dealt with this on some level, but failed to really make a point in the end.
