Good movie with simple story
This is the story of a fairly successful young black man, just shy of 30 years old, who decided he needs to be less of a workaholic and meet and date women, with marriage and family as a goal.
He signs up for a dating service that is NOT online. It's an old- fashioned matchmaking type service that sets a person up with a member of the opposite sex for dinner or coffee. They don't do a lot of business but they do have some success (a well-known actress becomes engaged after meeting someone through them, so that's a good sign!)
The young man has three friends and the movie is about them as much as it is about him. By the end of the movie, they have all found love (heterosexual love, no surprises there) but that's about as much of the plot that I'm going to give away.
There are some plot twists along the way that keep it interesting. The acting is fine; I really believed these people might be friendly off screen.
It ends with the 30th birthday party. It started with a night out, dancing at a club, so it seems to come full circle. There's an appearance by Johnny Gill, who had a hit song with Stacy Lattishaw, 'Perfect Combination'.
Good movie - a surprising treat. The main character - so handsome! The others, not too shabby either!
