    All Usher fans really seem to want out of a movie like this is an opportunity to ogle their idol for an hour and a half. And that's all this movie affords them.
  2. A genially cruddy B movie can sometimes go places - sort of - that bigger movies won't.
  3. As bland and forgettable as its title.
  4. Reviewed by: Christopher Orr
    The movie pitches itself as a modern-day "Romeo and Juliet," but its execution is so lazy and inept that if the lovers were to die horribly it would come more as relief than tragedy. Sadly, in this respect, as in every other, In the Mix disappoints.
  5. 30
    A jumble of genres including mob melodrama, bodyguard romance and interracial love story, none of which is handled in a remotely satisfying manner by director Ron Underwood. The film's tone shifts with all the grace of a car with a balky transmission.
  6. 11
    This vehicle for hip-hop star Usher is no blinged-out Beamer rough-riding it over to Jay-Z's joint to wallop some cheeba up off'n the Zeezer's haid; it's more of a Yugo, as in "You go to this wannabe straight-to-video tripe, you deserve what you get."

    Wow, what can I say? Usher IS so attractive, and man can he dance and sing. I would have liked to have seen a little more of "the stomach," but this movie worked. I don't understand all of the haters out there. Sit back, relax, and marvel in the greatness that is Usher! Expand

    It was a good movie because Usher and Emmanuelle looked hot in it, and it was just interesting and fun to watch!

    Extremely generic and disposable, do not need another bad movie in the world. Maybe the fans like this type of movie, yet it is still a lousy movie. I do not recommend ever. Expand

    Give me a break. Rehsu D., who wrote that "9" review, is obviously involved in the production of this movie in some way. Always watch for studio plants, people! Usher might be able to sing and dance, but this movie is a joke. Hey, am I the only one who is disturbed by Usher's pointed head? He looks like he belongs in an old SNL "ConeHead" skit. Expand

    Who knew movies could be that bad? Usher was better in She's All That. That's the best thing I could say, really, that bad.
