Editorial Reviews

A high-energy romantic comedy that follows three bachelors, speeding through life and scheming on women. When it comes to the opposite sex, it’s about the “chase” and “finish line.” Dog (Chico Benymon, Life Is Not a Fairytale: The Fantasia Barrino Story) and Beaver (Leonard Robinson, TV’s Nick Cannon Presents: Wild ‘N Out) spend their last dime on a nightclub, while Too Cool (Wesley Jonathan, Roll Bounce) devises the ultimate scheme to get women and money – SPEED-DATING!

There's alot of criticism for low budget movies.., This particular movie is the "break through" kind, The casting was a blockbuster assemble of young & seasoned actors, they pulled the (typical)script thru no matter how large or small the parts were.., The sound & lighting was B+.., The scenes weren't "Hangover Dvd" funny, But this ran a close 2nd place... Definitely a Dvd you'd pull out the collection to entertain friends...

1.0 out of 5 stars I love to support indy/black films but... July 26, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Just got through about half of this movie and had to shut it down. I've made it through some really bad movies in my day (both indy and hollywood) but this one was really bad.

An overdone plot (the player meets the girl of his dreams).

Bits and pieces of comedy (one liners or the woman that turns out to be a man) that have been done in to many diffferent films.

Poorly acted and executed. If we give movies like this 5 stars we are telling African American directors/producers that this is the type of garbage we want to see.

I'd much rather watch The Best Man, The Brothers, or Love and Basketball for the 15th time rather than watch another movie like this.

Don't worry this will show up on BET at some point and you can watch this bad movie for free. I wouldn't even sit through it then.

Man, I wish Amazon gave refunds for bad movies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Speed-Dating February 11, 2011
By Mz. Pat
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I saw this (comedy) movie in a Chicago theater. The story line was refreshing, fun and entertaining. Singles are actually participating in speed-dating activities which allows them to gather information about each other before actually going out on a real date. I just had to order the DVD to add to my collection.

1.0 out of 5 stars Has its moments, but an overall failure December 25, 2011
Format:DVD
Written and directed by Joseph A. Elmore Jr., the romantic-comedy SPEED-DATING centers around three friends - Too Cool (Wesley Jonathan), Dog (Chico Benymon), and Beaver (Leonard Robinson) - who concoct a speed-dating event to meet as many women as possible. In truth, this speed-dating event is more of a ploy, because its main objective is to sweet talk each woman and get her into bed for sex. The premise sounds interesting; unfortunately, Speed-Dating hits many speed bumps throughout with overacting, weak storyline, boredom, and dry comedy, leading to the inevitable - a crash.

The three friends/roommates are described as follows: Too Cool, a millionaire playboy who's just not that into you"; Dog, a freeloading friend who favors "the R-Kelly tapes"; Beaver, a culinary enthusiast who is suspected to be a "man-tickler?" Both Too Cool and Dog suspect Beaver's homosexuality and pester him in various scenes, but he strongly denies being gay (but questions himself). His sexuality is tested in two unamusing scenes: the gay club and the house party.

(Note: Spoilers will be revealed, mainly the speed-dating happenings with the various women they meet.)

The movie begins with the three roommates on a track field in sprinting position. As they sprint, the scene cuts to a speeding car and shows each character engaging in two activities: posting flyers and talking to women. The following scene focuses on Too Cool who is accompanied in his bedroom by a fake accent-speaking white woman in lingerie named Frenchita (Mary Alexander Stiefvater). She claims to be his girlfriend, but Too Cool denies any relationship and claims she is only a sex partner and forcefully removes her from his house.

Very good and very funny.
I noticed that there was almost NO cursing. That means the writing had to be decent.
