Classics like Love and Basketball, The Best Man…How Stella Got Her Groove Back, and the holy grail of black romcoms, Love Jones. The days of Sanaa Lathan, Nia Long, Boris Kodjoe, Gabrielle Union and two of the original chocolate drops, Morris Chestnut and Taye Diggs. Oh how I miss those days.
okay Okay OKAY, 44-year-old Morris Chestnut, fine. You’ve convinced me: I’ll get back in the gym, dude. You’ve made your point: you can make a movie in 1999 then come back like 14 years later and be in even better shape than you were last time, when you were 30 or so. I’m not a hater so I don’t hate, I congratulate, and where appropriate, emulate.
But for real, everybody in this movie looks as good or better than they did in the first one. Nia Long went to the Phylicia Rashad school of How To Stay Fine Forever and Ever Amen. She just had a baby not too long ago, too. Ooooooh, kill em’!
