Or at least on a first date that’s hopefully not a $200 date. As soon as the news hit, social media started with the jokes about how if French could pull her, it lets you know that anybody could have. We think these women are great catches so the men they date should also live up to that standard that we believe them to be. I remember when I found out that Lil Wayne and Lauren London were expecting.

Oh, and fellas, if you intend to go splitsies on this date as so many men seem to be doing nowadays, as Teedra Moses said on her landmark work, (a work that I’d bet money Sanaa is familiar with), specifically the song “You Better Tell her”, well “…you better tell her…” Women HATE the dutch surprise date ending. It was the same type of joke that Chris Rock made about Jermaine Dupri dating Janet Jackson, as if Jermaine Dupri was some poor man’s, budget-boyfriend that somehow slid in Janet’s DMs (or would have if Instagram and Twitter were a thing back then) while the rest of the available, and more suitable populace of men, collectively blinked.

Out Friday (February 3), the flick stars Sanaa Lathan ("Blade") as Kenya Mc Queen, a black 30-something workaholic who has thrown her personal life out the window in order to rise up the ranks of her high-profile accounting firm.

"Kenya has all these characteristics she needs to have in her mate, but the person she ends up meeting doesn't fit a lot of that criteria," Lathan said.

"I think that's a lesson that your heart is going to fall in love with who it's going to fall in love with, and it's not necessarily what's on paper." "If you're in love and there's that chemistry, that's what it's all about.
