Synopsis

Collection of urban comedies. 'Nothin' 2 Lose' (2000) shows that there is only one thing that can take the spin out of a young, hip-hop music producer's life faster than he can cut a deal: marriage. In 30 days Kwame (Brian Hooks) must prove that he can change his tune from a partying bachelor to a respectable marrying man. In 'Headz I Do' (2003), two construction workers, David (Jason Smith) and Wayne (Eric Connors) consider themselves 'real men' - and love to vent their homophobic spleen at the local gay community. But, horror upon horror, they are sentenced to serve jail time at a local beauty school; and when David falls for his instructor Aqua (Monica Askew), he finds himself seeking help from his gay classmates to become a more 'caring' guy. 'Beverly Hood' (1999) sees poor couple Red and Nola Washington (Jamar French and Kim Whitley) and their family win $300 million, whereupon they pack their clothes, furniture and their Aunt Gert (Buddy Lewis) and move from the east side neighbourhood to the glitz and glamour of Beverly Hills. Trying to combine their 'grits and cornbread' lifestyle of old with their new 'champagne and cavier' neighbours makes for an interesting - and hilarious - cocktail of cultures. In the romantic comedy 'Soul Talkin' (2002), Kim (Tamara Lynch) and James (Damon Hines) have decided to end their relationship and - as part of a research project for a psychology course - they volunteer to be part of a study investigating why relationships succeed or fail. They are soon wondering whether to give their relationship another chance... In 'Fakin' It' (2003), a group of friends who are struggling with their love lives religiously play a weekly game of football to help keep their manhood in check. Together they believe that as they tackle and score on the field, they can relieve the stress of their messed-up love lives.
