This movie is truthful. As much as we would hate to believe it, but relationships with your parents and your significant other is just like that with most people. There's usually always drama With urban people. Not to say that it's not that way with suburban people, but for some reason we "urban folks" almost always make the news. Anyhow Tyrese did a good job as Jody and I was quite suprised. He potrayed a lazy son, a decietful baby's daddy and a young man who had somewhat of a desire to do better, just caught up in temptation. His mother Addrienne Joi Johnson did a fair job, she looked rather young to be his mom, but isn't that truly the way it is. She didn't seem very supportive as a mom, but her part was to give some advice and to stand her ground on having a man in her life played by Ving Rhames. Tyrese main girl Taraji P. Henson did an excellent job playing her part as his baby's mom and the girl he truly cared for. We as women feel just like she did when it comes to a man we love, we want them to do right by us and if they dont, we express ourselves. We want them to leave if they cant act right, but we give them numerous chances to straighten up. This movie has numerous sex scenes, violence and profanity, not for the little ones it's truly an adult film. This movies has a pleasant ending. Check it out!

I can remember when this movie was advertised, the studio did no favors for the makers of this film. Tyrese stars as a young man who has trouble letting go of his adolescence while being confronted with adult issues. I'm not a Tyrese Gibson fan (see any of his Fast & Furious performances), but he is good in this movie. His odd mix of mama's boy while trying to be a player worked for me.

Baby boy was a good movie because of alot of truth. The situation with Jody and his baby's momma has happened many times. All a girl wants is her man to be true. This is a story of a brotha who needed to grow up and realize what he was about to lose. It took alot for him to realize it, but he finally did and I personally thought the movie was GREAT. I highly recommend this film.

Singleton's solid direction didn't save the uneven pacings of this film , and not only the pacing, theres alot of Gap that occured here, i dont know what it is exactly but probably the lack of resolution and the absence of consequences that suppose to be given to some of the lead characters, i don't know maybe its just me, after Boyz n' the hood(1992) where the ending is brilliantly justified or the murkier 'Menace to Society' (1993), this one seems to be too easy going on facing the hard days yet to come, so i should probably blame it on the script.
The story opens with a fresh sequence on the definition of why a black male is defined as a baby boy, we are then introduced with the title character , Jody , A 20 yr old unachieving young man trying to break free off the directionless life on the street but seems to do little about it,instead he preffers the good old in and out and sampling other local females, despite already giving babies to his steady girlfriend and another mistress type of woman,oh yes, he also lives with his young mom who still samples on different type of thug boyfriends, that is until the biggest thug,Melvin aka Ving rhames came by , took the heart of mom, and leave Jody with oedipus angst, now i leave it to here, since it is really hard to break down a summary for this one, every scenes seems to be working like a mini episodes of themselves, which is also the weakness of this film.

I have to admit, that this movie was really "Straight in your face". There were so many scenes that I really felt. I thought that this movie was just going to be another hood movie but the reality of the plot really hit home. You don't have to be from the hood to feel this movie.

I have everyone in my office grooving to this movie. It's great. From Snoop Dogg's character, to Tyrese's immaturity, Ving Rhames great body and an excellent story about life in the hood, what else can you give it but 5 stars?

They dont make movies like this anymore. If they do, they usually come straight to dvd and aint that good. My pops bought this movie sometime in 2002 when it came out on dvd and I ended up accidently selling the movie sometime in 2006 or somewhere around there. I didnt really care at the time but recently I wanted the movie again so I came here and bought it. Its a all hood movie about the lives of how the black man in america goes thru life. Baby mama drama, no job, living in the hood, the usual things you usually see in movies of this type. But this movie seems different. It has a different feel to it. I cant really explain but it is good and I am very happy with my purchase. And yes i'm black also if you were wondering.

Good story...excellent cast and well acted...the story tells it all..a young man with a kind of Oedipus complex towards his mother but in the end needed to simply 'grow up' and be a man! One of Singleton's best!
