Editorial Reviews

Kenya McQueen (Sanaa Lathan) thought she had it all: a successful career, good friends and family. There was just one thing she didn't have under control: her love life. All that changes when she meets sexy, free-spirited Brian Kelly (Simon Baker). But when her ideal man (Blair Underwood) arrives on the scene, Kenya must decide between the relationship everyone expects and the romance no one expected.

    Format: DVD
    I am a white/Italian man newly married to a super black woman. We are both in our 40's and working professionals. We went to see this movie when it came out in the theaters, and then purchased the DVD when it came out. We both enjoyed the movie very much, I guess for obvious reasons. It's a positive and uplifting movie. There simply are not many movies that realistically try to present relationships involving a black woman and a white man---especially this movie which comes at you from the woman's perspective.

    Although not perfect, the movie did a very good job portraying the hesitation, uncertainty, obstacles, unknown, pain, awkwardness, and yes, passion, excitement and humor, involved with inter-racial relationships. Both leading characters were very likeable and believable. (Who said Sanaa Lathan is not attractive and talented--you've got to be kidding??) Brian and Kenya's first meeting at Starbucks is priceless. You also just have to smile and laugh at the scenes involving Brian/Kenya and her hair---white men really don't know anything about black women and their hair!!

    For me, one of the most telling scenes in the movie is when Brian and Kenya are arguing in the supermarket, and Brain states he does not want to "talk about race" that night. Kenya responds that "race" is something black people are forced to deal with every day and every night. This is something I did not appreciate as a white person until I married a black woman. When you are a black "minority" woman in a predominately white male world, you're forced to deal with race everyday, whether you want to or not. I have found this to be true with my own wife. Race is always something we are ready to talk about or deal with--but it does not dictate or drive our relationship/marriage.

    I am not sure that I got the same thing out of the film that everyone else did. I am mulatto. So my opinion is the opinion of a mulatto observer.

    I really liked this film, and I do believe that it is, in some aspects, very realistic. The thing that I found the most interesting in the film is that it not only depicts racism, but the movie bravely portrays the problems with reverse racism. The main character in this film is extremely racist (Kenya) and she does not know it. She treats Brain, her white boyfriend, with contempt in many scenes within the movie. She is unfair to him and blames him for the bad experiences that she has had with other white people in her life. The development in this movie comes when Kenya comes to terms with her own racism and stops projecting outward the feelings that she has herself. Everyone has to behave the way that they would like people to behave.

    Brain is an educated man in a lower social class than the girl he is trying to date. His low status is displayed realistically. He is treated in an inferior manner because of his job--despite his his good character. He displays the most mature behavior of any character in the movie. He is completely untouched by racism even though he does not always understand the social implications. As a character, he is not a saint. He is ignorant of the damaging experience that black women experience on a daily basis, but he tries to understand. This character is probably the most beautiful that I have ever watched in any film; he tries. He is also extremely patient in the face of mistreatment, refuses to complain if he thinks it is nonconstructive, and looks constantly for the positive in the situation. He is an enlightened person and he does not have the status of a professional class job.

    Format: DVD
    "Something New" is a romantic comedy with a social agenda. Kenya McQueen (Sanaa Lathan) is a workaholic investment banker with no time or patience for men. She yearns for companionship but has impossibly high -and very specific- standards. Urged by her friends to loosen up and "let go" of her concept of the ideal man, she agrees to a blind date arranged by a co-worker. If only the date were colorblind too. Kenya is set up with Brian Kelley (Simon Baker), a handsome, easy-going landscape architect who abandoned his corporate career to go into business doing what he loves. But Brian is white. Kenya is black. And white men are at the top of the list of things Kenya doesn't do. But she does need a landscaper for her new backyard. So she hires Brian, and their mutual attraction blossoms -to the variable horror and curiosity of Kenya's friends and family.

    The moral of the story is that social conventions don't always know best in matters of the heart: You might find the companion you seek if you are open to other possibilities. Kenya and Brian's story is predictable, but Sanaa Lathan and Simon Baker are attractive and interesting to watch. The greater social insight of the film may be in Kenya's coterie of friends, all upper-middle class professional black women who fret over the dearth of suitable black men available to them. Their predicament and their views of men and race are interesting from the perspective of an outsider. White members of the audience will doubt Brian's willingness to tolerate the enormous chip Kenya carries on her shoulder. And he is more tolerant and self-sacrificing in the face of Kenya's self-absorption than is believable. But romantic comedies require some suspension of disbelief, and "Something New" is entertaining.
