    The movie's a mixed bag, but worth seeing for the good stuff, which is a lesson in how productive it can be to allow characters to say what they might actually say.
  2. 70
    A lively, affectionate and well-acted romantic comedy, takes a raunchy look at relationships from the black male perspective.
  3. The psychological and psychoanalytical probes into sexual and emotional problems keep this reasonably lively.
  4. The cast is strong and work together flawlessly, and romantic comedies that take an unabashedly male perspective without being relentlessly vulgar or misogynistic are rare indeed.
  5. 50
    While all of the actors are excellent, we sat up whenever Gabrielle Union walked on screen. As the ever-sensible woman who disrupts Jackson's bachelorhood, she projects the pluck, gravitas and beauty of a younger Alfre Woodard.
  6. Reviewed by: Dennis Harvey
    Pic's complete lack of cinematic verve, along with bland tech work, do much to drain the juice out of what should have been a fierce, fun battle of the sexes.
