Actually that they're back together, they could be excellent for every other, except that Dre's about to marry lawyer Reese and Sidney claims not to be interested in Dre romantically. Meanwhile, Dre is growing increasingly restless with his company's focus on profit over artistry, which leads to signing the gimmicky duo Ren and Ten while ignoring the talented Chris

Brown Sugar Reviews:

My summary of the film is my opinion. I love this film because I feel that Sidney Shaw is using a metaphor throughout the entire movie. She is comparing Hip Hop to her greatest mate Dre, both of which are alike. I search this film nice because of all the metaphors found within the movie, that only one can search if they look closely.For example, when Sidney and Dre are in the shop looking at something to purchase for her fresh place, they come across a "vase" and the girl at the shop explains to them that many couples play that piece. Soon within the movie, you see that that vase is in Sidney's house.I also play this film because everything that is said, and everything that is done within the film has a meaning behind it. Foreshadowing is found everywhere, you just have to look closely enough for it. Nothing in this film is done without a reason.Every line told within the film is told beautifully and has significance behind it. My favorite line within the movie, that I've carried with me ever since I heard it is, "So what is the difference between rap and hip-hop? It's simple. It's like the difference between telling you love somebody and being IN love with somebody. Rap is just a word." When I heard that line, I fell in love with this film and I had to watch it over again, and I have watched it many times. Every time I search more meanings that I missed the first time. What I like even more about this film is that they test current artists in the film that state their opinion on "When they first fell in love with Hip Hop." "Brown Sugar" spoke to me. It's real. Nothing in it is fake like in the majority of movie's these days which is why I think I play it so much. I suggest this film to anyone who has a passion about something or to anyone who looks for significant meanings behind anything.


Brown Sugar (2002) should have been retitled Love & Hip-hop if only to simplify matters. Like Love & Basketball, it marries the tried-and-true romantic flick formula to the emergence of mainstream "black" culture. Because of these similarities and the presence of Sanaa Lathan, most viewers will quickly lump Brown Sugar into one of two pools. They will either see it as yet other "black" movie about a lifestyle that was once counter-cultural and is now, thanks to MTV, cliched or as one more in a long line of romantic comedies.This movie fits into both genres but is far better than most of its fellow films. The hip-hop culture is a childhood background that has turned into a profitable lifestyle for Dre and Sid, the two main characters. Their careers are products of the American craze for pop culture but their love for hip-hop is powerful enough to let them the hope that they can somehow create a difference in the business. Movies with black stars tend either to drown them with imagery of the ghetto (a la Menace II Society, Baby Boy, etc) or fully ignore the African-American element, dress the characters in business suits, and absorb them into the "white" corporate globe of success. Brown Sugar does neither. Hip-hop is natural to Dre and Sid and is show in their conversations without being obtrusive. Writer Michael Elliot is wise to allow them lead their lives in the corporate globe without ever losing their childhood backgrounds.In the another camp, romantic comedies generally sacrifice hero development and plausibility to accomodate the dreaded near-misses, love misunderstandings, and the climatic stage where the boy publicly confesses his undying love. For the most part, Brown Sugar steers clear of these pitfalls and remains real to its characters. The film never pretends that any of its characters are excellent or indeed that any of them are ever sure of any of their emotions. This is not a fairy tale film where characters have sex because they are in love. This movie is more realistic. The characters are young and romantic at heart and for one reason or another, they search sex first. That then leads them to at least the misguided pretense of love. As one hero explains it, "put a boy and a girl together for long enough and something's bound to happen." Infidelity is shown as a sign of emotional uncertainty not of villainy. Even the greatest of the characters eventually considers it. But neither Famuyiwa's camera or Elliot's script vilify them for it. The characters earn the viewer's sympathy despite their mistakes and when confronted by their mad spouses, they do test their greatest to be honest and direct.The script also avoids the kinds of contrived jealousy traps that most romantic comedies rely on. When one hero finally falls for other and acts on his feelings, he is not lead astray by a misunderstanding. He arrives early enough to realize that she has managed to search love elsewhere while he was making up his mind, but too late to do anything about it. Even the public pronouncement of love is cleverly flipped. All in all, this film could be watched by anyone who has seen one too many low romantic or African-American comedies and needs to be reminded that a string of terrible films does not crash a genre.


They're both approaching 30 and have found success in their various but equally demanding careers. He's a hip-hop producer/exec, and she's a magazine editor for XXL. Their relationship is defined by their mutual love of hip-hop, and for every other. His name is Dre (Taye Diggs) and her name Sidney (Sanaa Lathan).It was three years ago that I fell in love with H.E.R. (a woman called Katie) and offered her "Brown Sugar" as a Valentine's Day gift and for her birthday (which was two weeks later). For most who fell in love with H.E.R., hip-hop started back in the '70s with DJ Kool Herc driving around the Bronx flatlands blaring the sound of a fresh era on his speakers. For me, I fell in love with H.E.R., hip-hop, the first time I heard "Walk This Way" by Run-D.M.C. and Aerosmith, which was recorded in 1986.Director Rick Famuyiwa has a passion for the music, and it seems to have culminated with "Brown Sugar," a movie that some have named an urban ver of "When Harry Met Sally" with a hip-hop beat. Sidney starts nearly each interview with the same question: How did you fall in love with hip-hop? For her, it was July 18, 1984, when she discovered a melody category with break dancing, DJing, emceeing, and graffiti tagging - the four elements of hip-hop.It's the passion for the rhythm and the beat that brought Sidney and Dre together as children. Early in their time in college, they both considered giving it a go at romance, but Sidney decided it wouldn't be right. Her close mate Francine (Queen Latifah) warns she's turning into a Terry McMillian character. Now, as adults with careers and goals, their romance lives have taken radically various courses. Dre has become engaged to Reese (Nicole Ari Parker), who is pretty and not some creature as films like this would require. There is a sense of sincerity in a stage where she and Sidney confront one other about Dre.Dre, meanwhile, who works for Millennium Records, has been assigned by his boss (Wendell Pierce), who wants MTV rotation, to produce a pair of jokesters called Ren and Ten and who call themselves the "Hip-Hop Dalmations" - "they represent that entire unity (that's 'u.n.i.t.y.') thing." Dre quits Millennium after this fiasco and decides to begin his own label by first signing Chris Shawn (Mos Def), who he believes is a true artist. Dre and Sidney both realize they have to hold their feelings for one other on the down-low, especially since she is actually involved with professional ballplayer Kelby Dawson (Boris Kodjoe)."Brown Sugar" works as a cute sweet romantic comedy that also doubles as a metaphor for the loss of dignity in hip-hop. Sid and Dre's being in love is paralleled vs hip-hop's acceptance into the mainstream, and its loss of any meaningful qualities. They both feel the beat, and the passion since that day in July 1984 when they fell in love with the same thing, and its growth over the years. But despite the over-commercialization of my favourite melody genre, one thing is certain:I still love H.E.R.7/10
