Something New - quick review

I thought this was a film that earned most of its emotional/romantic payoff based primarily on the chemistry between Sanaa Latham (Kenya) and Simon Baker (Bryan). Uptight Kenya is a successful senior level financial manager on the verge of making partner at her firm (but she perceives that being black forces her to work twice as hard to earn her keep, and Bryan is a landscape architect who happens to be white. They initially meet on a blind coffee date, but Kenya just isn't open to the idea of dating a non-black man, but they cross paths later, and Bryan sort of wears down her defenses. While being a little predictable, it still a nice romantic movie if you're in the mood for such fare.

I give it 2.75 stars, or a grade of B-.
