Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Though predictable and possibly too sweet, Brown Sugar is charming, well-acted, and smarter than typical rom-com fare.

Common Sense Says
Hip-hop inspired romcom has language, sexual references.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Brown Sugar is a warm romantic comedy with some strong language including sexist terms and the "N" word. The story centers around two childhood friends, Sidney (Sanaa Lathan) and Dre (Taye Diggs), who question the status of their relationship when they both meet long-term partners. The language is occasional but, in addition to the "N" word, does include "f--k" and "s--t," as well as terms like "ho" and "tramp." There is drinking to the point of mild intoxication at a party and a reference to smoking drugs. There are also affairs and mention of divorce. But the movie is mostly upbeat and populated with positive characters.
