Lackluster interracial romance about a career-minded African-American executive (Sanaa Lathan) who falls for her white gardener (Simon Baker) prompting predictable reactions from her friends and family. Directed by Sanaa Hamri, the film reverses racial stereotypes in exploring society's unspoken prejudices, but its sentimental "love is colorblind" message is weedy with cliches and preachy dialogue. Several implied sexual encounters, a scene of passionate groping, a tacit approval of premarital sex and a suggestive dance performance, as well as some crude sexual language and humor and crass expressions. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
