  • Well Above Average for The Feel Good Genre by 7

    Its a Hallmark-style movie so its not going to win any major prizes, but this is an above average example of the genre. The writing is decent. The acting is above average. Not sure why these movies always have main characters that are all black or all white and intermingling is rare, which seems unrealistic. Also not sure I believe that a young black woman getting a PhD in English would want to write a thesis on Jane Austin but I guess its possible. A bit of a tear jerker just to warn folks.

  • Diverse romance by 9

    We don't see a lot of diversity in the lead characters of romance films so this one needs to be acknowledged and supported. We want more diverse stories that follow the same feel good formula.

  • Cheesy and Made for TV feel, but great COVID Lockdown movie... by 9

    People are less forgiving when the feel good romances feature black people, but sometimes we want to see a simple, cheesy, slice of life movie with Black people. Not a complicated movie, totally predictable, but that's what cheesy romantic comedies are about. I give it a 9 not because its a great movie, but great for the "Cheesy Romantic Movie Featuring Black People" Sub -Genre....
