Brown Sugar
Taye Diggs plays a music executive for a hip-hop recording label, and Sanaa Lathan (Love and Basketball) is the new editor of a hip-hop magazine. They've been friends since they listened to hip-hop together as kids in Queens. Over the years, they drifted apart and led their own lives on different coasts. But when she moves back to New York, and learns that he's about to marry Nicole Ari Parker (Remember the Titans) she reacts poorly. After some minor mishaps things unsurprisingly get straightened out as you'd guess they would. But the screen chemistry between the stars is what makes the film work so well and Queen Latifa (Living Out Loud) and Mos Def (Monsters Ball) who both started in hip-hop, are sensational additions as their best friends. Rick Famuyiwa who directed has used the music as a third ingredient of the film, tying it all together into a delighful package.
