After 3 years together and with an upcoming marriage, Clara and TV writer Ray have an announcement to make to their family and friends during a dinner party at their apartment. He's meeting her disapproving parents for the first time. There's her best friend Mishawn (Tiffany Haddish) with white boyfriend Ty. Clara's wannabe gangster brother Freddy brings his baby momma Aubyrn. Billy and Channel are their weed friends, and Chad is their white neighbor. Despite Clara's objection, Ray invites his best man Sam. The situation gets more complicated as secrets are revealed. With Tiffany Haddish's rising stardom, it's no wonder that she gets half of the cover space. She has a supporting role which doesn't allow her to fully stretch her comedic skills. There's a fun discussion about a beauty contest between dick and vag at the beginning. Then a secret is revealed and her character cannot function as the sassy best friend. The secrets essentially killed this movie. If this has any chance, the central relationship has to be rock solid. The story is constructed to fail. The actors vary but mostly, it's the uneven writing and directing. The filmmaker is static mostly due to its limited setting. The characters are stuck and some of the characters are too one-note. This is a fundamentally flawed movie.
