Talking Southside with You

Inspired by Barack and Michelle Obama's first date, SOUTHSIDE WITH YOU recounts that eventful summer day in 1989.




So who is going to see it?
Looks like they're giving it the Ghostbusters treatment.

I saw a trailer for this not too long ago. It looked ridiculously sappy, although it might actually be pretty decent. Can't imagine I'll see it though.

You mean they're already rebooting it, with Melissa McCarthy as Barack Obama?!

Re: Southside with You

I saw it. It was a fine film. It has sharp dialogue and the performances were solid. There's sly humor peppered throughout, but there are no "meta-winks" to the audience about what is to come. Think of it like My Dinner with Andre only with out current President and First Lady. It gets my highest recommendation--I didn't look at my watch once during the proceedings.
