Woo: Directed by Daisy von Scherler Mayer. With Jada Pinkett Smith, Tommy Davidson, Duane Martin, Michael Ralph. Gorgeous and extravert Woo meets insecure and straight-laced law clerk Tim at a blind date.

“u0026quot;Woou0026quot; has a fine cast. Jada Pinkett has great charisma. Tommy Davidson is a fine comic actor, though he isnu0026#39;t too convincing as a straight-arrow law student. The film is written in sitcom format. The film consists of one implausible scene of conflict after another (especially at the Italian restaurant), desperate to find a punchline. Some of the scenes work. I thought the scene at the transvestite bar was hilarious. And I liked the little cameo by Billy Dee. That gave the film a touch of class. Itu0026#39;s too bad LL Cool J only had one scene. I liked his smooth u0026quot;mack daddyu0026quot; character. But with a film like this, even though itu0026#39;s a comedy, your disbelief elevates by the minute and it just doesnu0026#39;t have a natural, character-driven flow. It forces itself upon the audience. And the third act is predictable and unconvincing. This is a film that couldu0026#39;ve been more than OK, if it had a little more wit and focus. If this is about a 1 or 2 dollar rental at your local video store–this is not a bad film to rent. Otherwise, I wouldnu0026#39;t recommend this one.”
