Guilty As Charged....

In the comments for favorite films, a couple of people sheepishly admitted that they like "Drumline". Well, despite my feelings about "Nerdy Nick" (the other blogs' name for him, not mine) Cannon's personal life, I'm guilty of liking Drumline too. For those of you who that don't know, the film is based loosely on super-producer and super-blabbermouth Dallas Austin's college experience. From IMDB:

A fish-out-of-water comedy about a talented street drummer from Harlem who enrolls in a Southern university, expecting to lead its marching band's drumline to victory. He initially flounders in his new world, before realizing that it takes more than talent to reach the top.

I.W.: Zoe (who I now know is black-thx Cocoa Lounge) Saldana is in it, as well as a low key and somber performance by Orlando Jones, who actually looks pretty good in it. Someone named Earl Poitier is in it....anyone know if he related to Sidney?

Check it out to see maybe the first and last film where Nick Cannon was bearable besides "Bobby".

No shame in liking this flick. I missed the stepping movie that came out earlier this year, but I love movies about very particular elements of black life. Wonder if somebody could do a movie about bid whist??

Or hair shows maybe?

Too late...2 films came out about hair shows that I know about...I can only imagine bid whist and dominoes are right around the corner...

Kind of random question... wasn't ATL (loosley) based on Dallas Austin's (and T-Boz'z) life too?

I mean, really tho?

Invisible Woman said...

@Tayo...I've never heard that one.
