I made the mistake of buying this movie before I'd seen it. Because I opened it, I can't take it back to the store. Listening to a friend, I bought this movie thinking it was good, I mean look at all the good actors in it? "A Good Man Is Hard To Find" = "A Good Script Is Hard To Find." This movie was aimless, all over the place and I had to force myself to watch all of it. Weak, weak, weak.

First of all, their son was older than they were. You remember how Cuba
Gooding, Jr. looked too old to be Laurence Fishbourne's son in "Boyz In The Hood"? Well, the son looked like he was in his late 20's and his parents looked like they were in their early 30's so they obviously had him when they were six making him a biological miracle.

This movie is slow moving, had poorly written scenes, left too many strings untied, and there was too much talent wasted on this film. Also, the title of the movie had nothing to do with its content. It should have been titled "Boring Movie" or "Wasted Talent".

I gave this movie to the friend who suggested it. I hope she makes it a happy home because it would only be in my way and take up space.

...but apparently a good movie is too! In spite of the caliber of the featured actors and actresses, I was left a bit lost and confused in the end.

Let me begin by saying Hill Harper did an excellent job as the charming-turned-cold boss, as did Melissa de Sousa and Mel Jackson as the high maintenance best friend and Renaissance man respectively.

I was thoroughly disappointed with the choppy story line that seemed to jump from one extreme to another, enabling most of the characters to fully develop. Also, some scenes (such as the throwing of the liquor bottle, the son fighting with his father) were overdramatized to the point of being ridiculous and ultimately irrelevant.

I understand the multiple messages that the movie conveyed in regards to being faithful, the importance of building a strong spiritual foundation within yourself and your family, and appreciating the things that you have instead of lusting after the things you don't need, but I just expected more.

I recommend renting the movie first before buying it; it should be available at your local video store.

I'm sorry..this movie lacked the hype I expected. I think the director took away the talent these true actors and actresses had to offer. But then again most of CodeBlack entertainment films are poor in quality and production.

Wow, this is a wonderful movie... We loved the plot, we loved the characters and the scenes were awesome.. We watch this movie all the time and are very happy to own this movie..

There is a need for more movies like this.. This was a great addition to our movie collection.

If you are looking for a positive happy movie with comedy, drama and romance etc all in one this movie is for you. A wonderful love story to us..

This is a good movies for couples night, or couples study groups, it shows what couples can go through when one's focus is not totally in the home, and one is being pulled in different ways. It also touches on how when couples begin to go in different directions.

This will show you how someone can come in between you when you are not in communication with one another and on different pages with each other. Good men really are hard to find, this movie will also help single ladies and gentlemen to see what goes on in marriages and how marriages can become broken. We think married and singles should view this movie before they marry and after they marry.

Now as far as the negative reviews, many children, teens of today look older than their parents.. They don't look as young as the children did who were born before the 80's. I don't know if it is the food we are eating, or the water we drink. We believe the son in this movie, played his role well.

As far as the title, well good men are hard to find. Many people are looking for good men, when there is one standing right in front of them. Many people look for better things in other places instead of taking the time to look at home, many don't take the time to look at what they already have.

This movie shows that message..

I love Golden Brooke and Darrin Dewin Henson (he played a much better church man in Fabric of a Man) but this was a dud for me. It had its moments here and there but most of the movie was very predictable and seem to drag on. It lacked any type of oomph and the moments you were left wanting to know more it just cut to the next scene, and never went back to wrap that issue up. Sorry this one didn't do it for me.

I only rate it 2 stars PURELY based on the talent casted for it! Otherwise, an inconsistent, choppy, lame piece of work. Although predictable, the plot would be decent IF these actors had a good script to go on! Each does the best they can with what little they're given. If you're watching this movie JUST because it's a black cast, you may enjoy it! However, if you're expecting a great movie with a great black cast, you won't!
