Although I'm happy for Monique and Gabourey, my friends and I have spent the last couple months discussing, celebrating, and condemning, the movie Precious and all of the reasons for its success, which seem to suggest that African American actors and actresses only receive Oscars when they portray the most violent and evil characters.
But I've said enough about that.
I have discovered an upcoming movie with a lighter subject matter
I hope this movie is well written and acted, and does well at the box office because I truly need some variety in my movie viewing. I want Boomerang back; the few movies that portrayed young African American professionals in the work place without guns, drugs, or undercover cops.
