Dont get me wrong, they are funny, but like i said, the film's issues in my opinion are too serious to warrant it. The main character Jodie is not likable, and i feel he is supposed to be a bit of an antihero type, but he simply doesnt come across like that, due to partly not great acting, and bad writing.

Romantically, he's having relationships with two women: Yvette, the mother of his son, and a new interest. Written by Anonymous. I get the feeling that John Singleton hates women.
If the Yvettes of the world are all he knows in women, I can understand why. The way he paints women as miserable, self-loathing creatures disturbs me greatly. As a woman I would have been deeply ashamed to work on this project. As a black woman, I would like viewers of this film to know that I never met any pathetic creature such as Yvette, nor have any of my friends.
