All right, maybe the movie does have an obvious agenda, but I still liked it as a romantic comedy

Poor Robert (Darrin Dewitt Henson). First, his boss fires him, even though Robert's father actually started the company! It's a surprise. Then, when this handsome man gets home, his mercurial girlfriend declares that she is moving out, since no ring has appeared. It looks like a double whammy for Rob! His crazy, coffee seller cousin Julian (Christian Keyes) is there to help him adjust. But, sometimes things happen for the better. First, Robert can devote more time to his side business and true love, interior painting. His skill can transform office space into something magic. Then, at a secondhand bookstore, Robert spies a beautiful lady, Morgan (Gabrielle Dennis). Although he doesn't get a chance to introduce himself, SHE calls him soon, for she wants her office redecorated, as she is a lawyer. But, curiously, Gabby doesn't seem to want to respond to Robert's obvious interest. All too soon, Robert learns that her ex-husband may want her back and is messing with her mind. Then, Robert finds out that his ex-girlfriend is having an affair with his former boss. So, that's why he was fired! Will Robert be able to win Morgan's affections? Maybe so, as he hatches a brilliant idea in his mind! This movie, to some, has an obvious agenda. African Americans need to become small business owners in order to truly make the big bucks. Yes, this may be a great idea to ponder. But, even when the flick is most blatantly persuasive, there is still a nice romantic comedy at the core. We fans care most about this! The cast is nice, with Keyes, especially, very funny. Also, the setting, costumes, story and direction are quite capable, resulting in an enjoyable watch. If you love your romcoms, like me, pick this one, brew up some coffee and gobble some cookies, too.

Bad movie.

This was a bad movie. In the bookstore the camera rarely moved. The same establishing shot showing the door was used each time. That says the filmmaker was lazy. Same thing for every scene that takes place where the cousin was selling coffee. The scenes were long and talkie and they weren't funny or poignant. SO MUCH talking. Basic tenet in film is, "show me, don't tell me." This was a high school film done with a better camera. It's telling when the editor is not listed on the IMDb page. The pacing coupled with the unnecessary long dialogue scenes just made it excruciating to watch. The writing for the characters was atrocious. In the 21st century a Black female confident in her abilities entrepreneur lawyer is going to let some man cock block her life? Not buying it. And our painter has to move in on the lawyer on the pick up mode from jump. Beautiful woman discount indeed. Clichéd and stereotypical. The soundtrack was sappy and not happening. Just a bad film all the way around.

Some Coffee with a Touch of Karma

This film begins with a young man by the name of "Robert" (Darrin Dewitt Henson) getting fired from a job at a company his father started but now being managed by a man named "Nate" (Josh Ventura). Needless to say, since he is a hard worker and Nate was his friend, this news comes as quite a shock to him. Not only that, but when he returns to his home, he finds that his girlfriend "Mita" (Erica Hubbard) is leaving him as well since, now being unemployed, he obviously cannot continue to support her in the manner she is accustomed to. He later discovers that Mita has been cheating on him with Nate. It's during this time that he meets an attractive female lawyer by the name of "Morgan" (Gabrielle Dennis) and sparks fly between them. The problem is that Morgan's ex-husband "Hill" (Lamman Rucker) is pressuring her reconcile with him and this makes any romance with Robert extremely difficult. Now, rather than reveal any more, I will just say that this was a cute rom-com helped in large part by the chemistry between Darrin Dewitt Henson and Gabrielle Dennis along with the comedy supplied by Christian Keyes (as Robert's cousin "Julian") and Erica Hubbard. Admittedly, the focus seems to be geared more towards a black audience but even so I still enjoyed this film and I have rated it accordingly. Slightly above average.
