A sensible chuckle, and the best satire I've seen in a while
This film knew how to tackle the issue of stereotypes in black literature and knew how to be funny about the addiction of stereotypes
Extremely clever script that keeps getting distracted with boring family drama stuff. Or maybe that’s the point, very layered film
Works as both a satire of the literary world and a family drama. Brown is simultaneously heartbreaking and hilarious
A clever and funny satire with a welcome focus on the protagonist’s family. A bit mixed on the ending, though.
Makes the stereotypes of black people into a comedy. This was an okay watch with an elite cast
This movie presents itself as a satirical comedy while under the surface it’s about learning to accept the family you came from.
While I cannot relate to most of the movie, but can acknowledge and appreciate it, the subplot of the brother was very relatable.
Funny well made satire about the world of Stereotypes being written in black literature with life lessons on top of it,Wright & cast deliver
Started off as an amazing satire and got watered down in its third act. Before the end, ML tells us he loves ambiguity but this felt rushed.
