I jut got back from seeing this movie and it was pretty damn amazing.
The acting was great.
The plot was great.
The drama was even better.
But, it left me with a ton of thoughts on the way home.
I’m sure Al Green crooning through my speakers with “I’m Tired of Being Alone” didn’t help either.
So I have a question and it is one I am sure every Fox could co-sign with.
Where is he?
So let’s get into the movie…
The movie centers around Jason (Laz Alonso) and Sabrina (Paula Patton) who fall – well hit– in love and they rush towards a wedding during 5 months of dating.
As the movie develops, you realize that she hasn’t met his family and that is where all the great drama continues.
(Can I just say how beautiful Angela Basset is?)
Anyway, her family is upper class and his family is ghetto Brooklyn – you already see where I am going with this.
Makes for a great romantic comedy (with an array of fine men and a great black movie WITHOUT a pistol packin’ grandmother).
I won’t give away too much but you already know how the movie ends and what it made me feel like.
It made me want what Sabrina must have been feeling.
Not menstrual cramps – but the feeling of having someone dominant want her.
Someone who is a fuckin’ man and knows his role.
Laz Alonso is just so sexy and so masculine.
It was a turn on the way he would look at this character and saunter about.
I know that getting married and having the big wedding hoopla is not in our lifestyle,
and quite frank I wouldn’t want all of that that,
but can a Fox just meet a Wolf who will be his best friend for life?
And in this eternal search for Wolfie,
why is it that when I turn around that all I see are feminine Wolves?
Glitterati super tight jeans, the mega switch in the strut, and giving extra drama wherever he goes?
And if he does happen to be masculine, where is his swag?
Did he lose it trying to keep up appearances (or not)?
I mean dusty jeans, bad breath, and so much dirt on his sneakers that you couldn’t tell they were white before.
I know that all of us want a Laz, Romeo, or even a Pooch “Derwin” Hall but are they hiding somewhere?
We thought they were online but obviously that is FALSE and one I strongly not put to much hope in.
Do we have to pray him into our lives?
Does God really answer these kind of prayers?
Do we accidentally meet him when our grocery cart bumps into his and we exchange numbers over cans of tuna?
Do we go to the clubs in hopes of meeting Mister Right Now and try to turn him into Mister Right?
You see where I’m going with this?
This is one movie that I call “My Life” that will be continued…
