Plot: Eva Dandridge is a very uptight young woman who constantly meddles in the affairs of her sisters and their husbands. Her in-laws, who are tired of Eva interfering in their lives, decide to set her up with someone so she can leave them alone. They end up paying Ray, the local "playboy," $5,000 to date her. The plan goes by smoothly, but troubles comes when Ray actually falls in love with Eva. Runtime: 105 mins Release Date: 06 Feb 2003
The movie started off very funny, but at the end it turned out to be a romance. I think this is a great date movie, because you saw all the smiling couples walking out and kissing. This isn't a "chick" flick and can viewed by a group of girls and guys. The age group I would say this is aimed at is 15-24 females.
Predictable but good (by Newsense)
Yeah, this movie is kind of predictable. The ending could have been seen a mile away but I like this movie a lot. It was recommended to me by the same friend who recommended American History X to me. He wasn't wrong about that movie and he wasn't wrong here. I was skeptical about seeing Gabrielle Union who is too fine for words playing a feisty character but the movie was a lot better than the previews led me to believe.Story: 3 men who are constantly hen-pecked by their girlfriends' sister Eva hire a player named Raymond played by LL Cool J to date her so they can spend more <more>
time with their mates. Raymond ends up falling for Eva when he realizes that there is more to her than meets the eye.Gabrielle Union was perfect as the high-strung Eva. I never looked at her the same after this role until I watched the movie recently and saw that her character wasn't that bad. The people that really annoyed me were the black three stooges Mike, Tim and Darrell. I mean, kidnapping Raymond because his relationship was making theirs look bad was in bad taste. I know it's just a movie but that was pretty low what they did. I laughed a lot at Eva when her attitude changed around once she started to date Raymond. The scene where she was in the beauty salon after a night of passion with Raymond had me on the floor rolling. I know women tend to act funny after receiving great sex but man was she goofy. I'll admit that LL Cool J and Gabrielle Union made a great looking couple on screen. There is actually chemistry there and LL lends a certain charm to his character Raymond. I think we need to give LL a little more credit as an actor. When he did his first lead in Out Of Sync I laughed at him but now he's lot better. He was good in Edison Force, S.W.A.T., Deep Blue Sea, Kingdom Come and here in Deliver Us From Eva.Critic are being too hard on this movie. Of course it's predictable but what movie isn't these days. I wasn't checking my watch every minute so that has to be a good sign. It was pretty funny at times and it was sweet. As a retelling of Shakespeare's Taming Of The Shrew its pretty good. As a product of Black Cinema its one of the best romantic comedies of recent memory. There I said it.
If you were to judge a book by it's cover, you would think "this film is a cheap urban black film". However, once you get into the film and the plot slowly reveals - it is a very great, underrated film with an astonishing story. Congratulations to the writers who came up with the concept and the cast for shaping the film into a remarkable film that it is! Gabrielle Union is such a talented actor, it was unpredictable how influential her role would be in immersing myself to watch this film with a fantastic sense of fulfillment. LL Cool J plays as the imposing, strong man who will <more>
make your women his, within a second of paying attention to her and the guy who is a female attracting magnet! His acting in this film assists this in being overall amazing!
I caught this movie on cable the other night never hearing about it before and I was pleasantly surprised by this well-made and highly entertaining film.Three friends hire a Romeo Cool Jay type "player" to try to romance and dump the ultimate "dragon lady" Eva who manipulates their women and eat up and spits out men without a thought. The idea is that the Romeo will dump Eva making her leave and then they can have control over their women and their lives.Not to give anything away but the longer Cool Jay "romances" Eva, he finds himself forgetting his purpose <more>
and falling for Eva. Also, as Cool Jay gets closer to Eva, life only gets worse for the three friends that hired him, much to their chagrin.Cool Jay gives an excellent and believable performance as the "player" and the actress that plays Eva is also perfect. There are several hilarious scenes that had me laughing out loud. The "Women only" club that is the beauty parlor has several enjoyable scenes as well.
This movie had me laughing out loud from beginning to end. I saw the DVD version so the LL Cool J and K-Ci & JoJo videos helped wrap up the story lines. Gabrielle Union and LL Cool J were amazing. It was great to watch the personality transformations as they happened. Even Jacqui lightened up a bit and she seemed more stiff than Eva at times. It's a really funny movie. You don't have to think too much, you can just sit back and enjoy. Make sure you watch the deleted scenes at the end as well. It helps to clear up some gaps. It actually would have been nice to have these re-added <more>
with the release of the DVD version. I don't know why filmmakers don't do that. See it! You won't regret it!
Good romance comedy with average production.You get here exactly what is promised to you.Main attraction is the sex appeal of the KING OF HIPHOP LL Cool J. Could have used better screenplay.Only for fans of Hiphop and LL and this particular genre........
Surprisingly Warm!!! (by nifabs)
Despite criticism, this manages to deliver a bit of comedy and drama. Gabrielle Union gives a standout performance as the unbelievable Eva Dandridge who needs someone like Ray to knock her from her high horse but she's that way cos she's taken too many knocks from life. She is pure evil. LL Cool J is a bit too neat or not too expressive maybe it's the role maybe not but he cuts a slightly bland figure. Between the two of them,they manage to create a cracking chemistry that sizzles and makes all other characters pale by comparison.This movie was touching and sincere for a Black <more>
movie a trait which is played down in most Black flicks , there's been a recent departure from the gangsta and hood epics or drugs and money flicks. Gabrielle Union was a delight to watch as ice queen Eva Dandridge who's been jilted by a one time-fiancée , watching over her sisters with a ruthless passion and closely guarding her heart against intrusion. I kinda felt sympathy when I realised she'd given up on her life when her parents died to raise and care for her siblings, but the time came to take a backseat, she moved on and was woman enough to breach the gap she'd created between her siblings and their men.LL Cool J was smooth as the player who took her on a bet. I admire the way he brought Eva down to earth, that's what women respect in a man. Knowing your own self worth, never kowtowing to them but meeting them at the right point and giving in only if need be. This may sound sexist but show me a sista or woman who'd respect her man if he yessed to her all the time. Not One!!Gabrielle and J simply stole the movie, the supporting cast are just supporting no insults meant , there was no one who came close to touching the two leads not because they were the stars but they infused strength and dynamism into their respective roles, they breathed life into them...It's good to see Black movies with a forte like this; it portrays us as intelligent and coming of age, which we did centuries ago anyway!!LEAD ME INTO THIS!!!!10/10
When I start to watch this movie I wasn't expecting the movie of my life but it's a good romantic comedy. The 105 min of this movie seems 10min.Good cast, nice interpretation and a reasonable direction. If you already saw Breaking all the rules with Jamie Joxx don't waste your time because it is very similar. Gabrielle Union seems to like this kind of movies and she do it well but not perfect.It also had a good plot which kept my attention. In resume this is a film that you don't have to push your mind to the limits to understand him, it is a very light movie, watchable, <more>
I'm sure you gonna have lots of laughs and when the movie its finished you will have a large smile in your face.
