Synopsis

Dre and Sidney (Taye Diggs and Sanaa Lathan) grew up together in the midst of hip-hop music and break-dancing in their New York City neighborhood. Both dreamed of becoming musicians, but instead, Dre becomes an executive at a music production company and Sidney is editor for a hip-hop magazine. Through the years, they keep in touch, still considering themselves best friends. Their friendship, however, interferes with their love lives. But their romantic partners see sparks between Dre and Sidney that are missing in their own relationships. “Brown Sugar” is a light romantic comedy filled with upbeat music and humor. If hip-hop’s your beat, “Brown Sugar’s” your treat.

Dove Review

In the game of true love, friendship plays a major role; yet, in spite of Dre and Sidney’s mutual admiration, they keep looking elsewhere for love. Comments imply that Sidney and her boyfriend become sexually involved early in their relationship and one brief bedroom scene is shown. Dre and Sidney are also shown in bed together. Six obscenities and a slang term for prostitute spouted in hip-hop lyrics and comical conversations show further poor taste. “Brown Sugar” isn’t that sweet.
