The American Black Film Festival DVD series has released a funny romantic comedy starring well-known comedienne Wayne Brady and Hollywood acting royalty Sydney Tamiia Poiter (Syndey Poiter's daughter). "The List" is a romantic comedy that features a cast of well known African-American actors. Wayne Brady stars in the film as a man named Lewis. Lewis is a man with a big heart who puts everything on the line for love and find himself dumped by the woman of his dreams on live TV. Heartbroken, Lewis decides to create a list of what he wants in the perfect woman.

Sticking to his list, Lewis sets out to meet the woman who meets all of his standard. He meets Cecile and she is everything he wants in a woman. The question is can he make it work between them? "The List" is an enjoyable comedy and it was a feature presentation at the American Black Film Festival. Warner Bros. releases the American Black Film Festival DVD series.

Also appearing in "The List" are Flex Alexander, Tatyana Ali, and Malcolm Jamal Warner.

The List on its own is nothing that we haven't seen before in countless Love Boat reruns. The plot has been done over and over. But this is the first time, Wayne Brady has starred in a movie and he pulls it off and makes the cliched story work. Sure we all know Wayne from Whose Line?, the Chappelle sketch and his talk show. But he can act too and he is fun to watch. Sydney Poitier is good as the female lead and she and Brady obviously have chemistry. Flex Alexander tried in the role of the wisecracking best friend. (everyone has their own version of Ethel Mertz.) But Illeana Douglas shines as Wayne Brady's secretary. What I enjoyed best about "The List" was the fact that it portrayed successful african-americans without resorting to portraying them in poverty,involved in crime or on drugs. It's about time. You will not be disappointed adding this movie to your collection.

It is awesome to see Wayne Brady back! The amazingly talented Whose Line Is It Anyway? star deserves a second chance after his Talk Show was cancelled. The story is about an OCD man (Brady) who is looking for the perfect woman. When he thinks he has found her, she rehects him hard, so he just keeps changing the items on "the list" until he can find the one.

This movie was not rated and while it's interesting, I was a bit surprised by some of the scenes in it.

This is certainly not for kids, it's more pg 13 rated.

I purchased this movie from Amazon not really knowing what to expect especially from Wanye Brady. To my surprise I really enjoyed the show. Excellent cast. Flex Alexander was great and hilarious. What I did find interesting was the commercial with the bi-racial couple. I've yet to see a commercial demonstrating that but with a woman and african american man running for president change is in the air. Excellent movie to add to your collection.

A solid three stars for THE LIST.

Ad executive Lewis Bond (Wayne Brady) is successful, handsome, and charming. But he's got this thing about lists. He makes a list for just about everything. So when his marriage proposal is humiliatingly shot down by his girlfriend, and, damn, on live television, too, Lewis conjures up a list which would make up his ideal woman. Items to be checked off consist of the girl having to like hockey and Thai food, singing on key (and being a Marvin Gaye fan), being well-organized and bilingual and sexy. And one hundred percent real. Easy peasy, right?

Several weeks later, Lewis runs into the lovely Cecile (Sydney Tamiia Poiter, Grindhouse Presents, Death Proof - Extended and Unrated (Two-Disc Special Edition)) in an elevator at his ad agency, and he's intrigued. It soon becomes evident that Cecile meets just about every criteria on Lewis's list. At this point, Lewis is smitten big time and proclaiming sappy things like "I think she's the one!" Never mind that she won't let him walk her home, or even to her car. Or that she won't give him her number. Or that she keeps wanting to take off whenever they're together. Around this time, you'd think Lewis might buy a clue. But, no, dude's simply too busy crossing items off on that list...

To cut to the chase: Cecile isn't as perfect for Lewis as Lewis thinks. So how will he react when he finally discovers this?

THE LIST is meant to be a heartwarming romantic comedy so odds are, it'll probably turn out alright for Lewis.

This was an entertaining movie to watch! Let's be clear....it's not going to win any awards, but it certainly will hold your interest, and it has a message with which most people will relate. It definitely gives you a good idea of the range of Wayne Brady (not just a comedian). Overall, I felt that it was worth the $$$!
