Product Description

Woo (Jada Pinkett Smith) is a streetwise New York girl who has been burned in relationships once too often. Her fortune teller, Celestrial (Girlina), tells her that she will meet the man of her dreams, a Virgo, tonight, but Woo does not take her seriously. However, when she meets Tim (Tommy Davidson), a struggling law student, through her cousin Claudette (Paula Jai Parker), and discovers that he is indeed a Virgo, she agrees to go on a date with him.

This cropped up in the schedules on BBC2, and I caught it from the part where Tommy Davidson meets Jada at his apartment, and it was uber rare on UK VHS.
The film seems to have a running moral message about Tommy's buddies being lecherous, but probably socially inept, towards all the 'honeys', but Woo is at times shrill and kind of rude, amongst other things, bringing a photo from Davidson's apartment to the restaurant and mocking his past taste in women. That's all okay I suppose. Also the compliments towards Smith's character on the back of the UK box cover is not an accurate depiction of how the New York Times responded to the film, because going back to the original review from the time, the film as a whole was given a pretty venomous review. Shows you can't trust quotes. What didn't help was that according to Wikipedia, the film was shot in '96 and released in '98. Smith apparently had got praise for her role in The Nutty Professor that she had done then, and it was unfortunate that that preceded the release of Woo, which could explain the perception that this character pales in comparison.
I think its draws were its choice of a 90s R'n'B soundtrack including Brownstone and Nate Dogg amongst others. The 'chicken hoe' sequence might get a pass for its creativity and might make someone titter.

I knew what I was getting with the film as I have seen it before!
it's a quirky and off key romantic comedy with an over the top Jada Pinkett, An LL Cool J cameo (that Mark Walberg seems to have lifted for his character in Date night)
and bunch of other B list black comedians/actors!
but unfortunately my disk wouldn't play! not even on my Region One DVD Player

I recently watched this film again whilst having a clearout. Unfortunately, it has not improved with age. The most disappointing thing about this film is Jada's performance, as I was expecting it to be so much better. The only good things about this film are the line about the "wet n*gga" (and I do normally hate the "n" word), and the song "Nobody Does It Better" by Nate Dogg which plays over the credits. The scene in the gay club is good too! 5 stars for the song, 2 stars for everything else.

I remember watching this on tv many years ago, so i was glad when i found it on amazon. It's a funny film about wanting love but not been able to see it when it's staring you in the face. Starring Jade Pinkett Smith, who is as funny as her husband Will Smith. A great film to add to any collection.
