Black Girls' Night Out: The Cast of "He's Mine, Not Yours" (2011)


I admit; I like to see beautiful successful Black women with chic apartments.  It's the primary reason I'm drawn to these flicks and I'm glad that since 2009 - 2010, there appears to be a burst of them.  I also see the casting is similar, which means some folks finally started to see the big picture, and began to network, pool their resources, and do their own thing.

That being said, this movie's biggest problem (aside for the title) is the continued obsession of getting, having, and keeping a man.  Granted, it's meant to be a romantic dramedy you watch with your girlfriends over a pitcher of margaritas on a lazy afternoon.  But at the same time, there's a negative depiction of an ambitious career woman whom, realistically at this stage of her life, ought to be focusing on her career and not letting her life come to a standstill because she's not sure her man can be faithful.

Can't get enough of Caryn Ward.


My favorite, I think.

  1. Honestly......if Ol Dude is willing to let Wile. E. Coyotette get under his skin and on his *SHUTYOMOUTH!*, then the protagonist is much better off without him. Just my opinion.

    And why it's so damn hard for me to watch movies like this. With all of the positive, why focus on the negative? Why does it matter so fucking much whether a sistah has a man or not? *shakes head*

    1. There's a scene where her whole life seriously comes to a screeching halt as she tries to decide whether to hire the "man-stealer" or not. Like seriously? Beautiful as she is? Great job that she has? Awesome apartment? And she's having a nervous breakdown over a man?

      We also find out Wendy Raquel Robinson's character is being cheated on, despite the projection of having a "perfect marriage." She knows about it, and she puts up with it, no doubt to maintain her standard of living. The fuck?
