Metacritic Score

    The New York Times Elvis Mitchell

    Another demonstration that current movies about upscale black characters have much more traditional values than ones about catty white teen-agers.

    Overall, this smooth, glossy, enjoyable film showcases an impressive new authorial voice.

    Entertainment Weekly

    It's a tribute to the actors' appeal that they can sling this hash and keep our sympathies, but they can't squeeze much drama from pure soap.
