More details. Work-obsessed Waymon Tinsdale III (Joseph C. Phillips) is the golden boy in the prestigious New York real estate firm of Drake, Gearson & Burke. Styling them Brooks Brothers, at ease at power lunches, in firm command of multi-million-dollar presentations, Waymon is this close to landing that partnership, if only he can close the very lucrative Savoy Tower deal. He's got it going on, or so he thinks. Never mind that his work friends make racist jokes behind his back. Never mind that his uptight, toothpick-shaped girlfriend Diedre (Anne-Marie Johnson) treats their relationship like a corporate merger and that, when they have sex, she orders him around like a drill sergeant, and, afterwards, she hands him a wipee. "For the thing," she says. Ugh.
And then one day Waymon's orderly world is upended as he catches sight of Natalie (Berry) in a restaurant. And, just like that, the very lucrative Savoy Tower deal gets put on the back burner. And there's Bobby Johnson's foot in the door.
Bobby is a street-savvy night owl and a serial party animal. He's also a mail room clerk who's always tardy and so gets shade from his mean boss (Samuel Jackson). Yeah, it makes sense that Bobby hasn't made headway in getting into that training program to advance himself.Read more ›
The story: Waymon Tisdale(Joseph C. Phillips) is a bank investor that is not too happy about his love life with his swishy and domineering girlfriend Diedre(Anne-Marie Johnson). He meets a beautiful girl named Natalie(Halle Berry) and ends up falling for her. He calls upon the help of a mailroom clerk named Bobby(Tommy Davidson)to aid him in getting her.
Tommy Davidson is funny as hell in this movie. So is Joseph C. Phillips. He is pretty good as the square but likable Waymon Tisdale. Halle Berry was just gorgeous here as Natalie and to tell you the truth I like her 90s movies better than the junk she's in now. There are too many funny situations to name them all and Strictly Business perfectly captures everything about the 90s urban culture whether its the music or the fashion.
Pay no attention to pompous and sheep-minded critics that cant even write real reviews and dont even have the decency to open up an account(still hiding behind the customer review option huh? Lazy punks). If you want a 90s comedy that's fun to watch then look no further. If you want something overrated beyond belief then follow these easily manipulated puppets but prepare to be disappointed if you do.
