Genial indie comedy about a no-account actor (Dorian Missick) trying to win back his old girlfriend (Zoe Saldaña) before she marries—ye gods!—an attorney (Hill Harper of Love, Sex & Eating the Bones). There's something inherently creepy in this story line no matter how many rom-coms have recycled it, though writer-director Pete Chatmon, making his feature debut, cagily subverts the premise by suggesting the actor's real problem is his own fecklessness. Early scenes reminiscent of Hollywood Shuffle spoof the typecasting of African-Americans as pimps and drug dealers, but when the hero finally lands an audition for a dignified role in a serious film he falls flat on his face. With Frankie Faison. 97 min.
