A little bit too slow to be really bad-good, this is C-movie shows a lot of heart. The DVD box screams goofy race comedy, but the movie itself doesn't go in any one clear direction. The actors take their work seriously and the few debatably funnily-unfunny jokes there are (i.e. "Why do you think Luke was so upset when he found out Darth Vader was his father? Because he was black!") are buried under convoluted, plodding melodrama.

When we first meet the manifestation of Beethoven's conscience (the far-right woman on the cover), I was hopeful it might lead to some adorable... Well, anything. Imaginary-person-only-one-person-can-see; where can you comedically go wrong? Instead, she shows up sporadically at best, adding next to nothing to the plot except getting to see a black woman get dismissed, called a bitch, and portrayed as a conniving nag. A lot of the other racial elements of the film were at least well-meaning if over the top, but her scenes made me uncomfortable and sad.

Ultimately, there's some entertainingly out of place montages and a couple good moments, but the movie loses all charm to poor pacing. It takes about an hour into the film to figure out the setting. Overall, it also just lacks that certain something that would make it Wiseauean in quality. An abridged version of this film would be modestly entertaining, especially one containing the weirdly-edited moaning-over-unrelated-footage sequences.

This movie was good. It was a man (Carl Anthony Payne II from "Martin" television series) questioning his relationship with a white woman whom he grew up. The reasons are obstacles such as people who are against interracial dating/marriage, etc. She had some white man trying to be with her while he had other black men and even an imaginary black woman trying to encourage him to break up with the white woman. I did not really like those events. But, fortunately, the interracial couple reconciled stronger than ever. They realized that they would never find and love someone else as much and the same way as they do with each other.

I came across this film by recognizing the lead star (Carl Payne) from the Martin Lawrence Show. The film gives a light hearted yet refreshing approach to the subject of interracial dating. Much of the writing seems to pay homage to Kevin Smith. The film has an independent feel to it with some hysterical scenes. The lead (Carl) does a nice job delivering inner conflict and comedy. Overall I enjoyed it. I give it 4 stars, (I never give 5).

I really enjoyed this movie! It's really cute, very funny and well done. Carl Anthony Payne does a great job. Lots of great people in this film. Stephanie Griffin is VERY sexy and is a great actress.
