Movie Review: Chocolate City

Wednesday, June 17, 2015

Director: Jean-Claude La Marre
Length: 1 hr 31 minutes
Stars: Robert Ri'chard | Vivica A. Fox | DeRay Davis | Michael Jai White

Life for a struggling college student changes in an instant when he meets the owner of a male strip club who convinces him to give amateur night a whirl.

Honestly this was probably one of the worst movies I watched (as far as story lines go) in a very long time. It was a boring, honest to goodness snooze fest. And you know what is sad about that? my sister & I actually planned a whole girls trip to the theater to see this...thank good gravy we didn't pay. Well, I paid my cable bill and was able to catch it on BET. I guess because of the limited release of Chocolate City and the upcoming Magic Mike 2 movie, this one got pushed to the side. We all know how Hollywood do, especially when a full cast of color is involved. But I can't even be mad at them for this one, it was not worth movie money.

The "About" info above pretty much gives you a idea of what is going in in Chocolate City, just add in a struggling single mom (Vivica Fox), a girlfriend who didn't know and a brother who turns manger (DeRay Davis). I can't say that I was expecting much from a movie that is centered around strippers BUT if you are going to attempt to give me a story..make it worth it is all I'm saying. So what I am going to do is give ya'll a peek at the Facebook convo I had with my family about this one...

Tea Time with Sharonda BrazenBabe's Family

Didn't enjoy the movie!!!!😩😩😖😩story line was slow & lame but the bodies where most definitely on point! I give it 🌟🌟's! Good morning

So yes, I agree with my aunt. The movie itself was all kinds of corny and predictable but dem bodies! Lawdt, praise to all of the angels in heaven...they were on point!

Anyhoo's, if you catch it on your cable provider...would I suggest it? idk. What I didn't like, the next person would definitely enjoy sooo....

But dem bodies was well worth me caressing my TV anytime a dancer came on.

Keep it Moving
