The Men welcome CHARMEL SIPPIO of the Reluctantly Adult podcast (http://www.ireluctantlyadult.com/) aboard the Mission to review 2002's BROWN SUGAR starring Taye Diggs, Sanaa Lathan, Queen Latifah and Mos Def. A Rick Famuyiwa (DOPE) film that doesn't hold up too well to criticism but still strikes a chord with the reviewers. The trick is - what does that chord sound like?
The refreshing but quirky coming of age comedy by writer-director Rick Famuyiwa and starring Shameil Moore reintroduces the streets of Southern California as the setting for thuggery and geeky hi-jinks 21st Century style.
