Kenya McQueen (Sanaa Lathan) thought she had it all: a successful career, good friends and family. There was just one thing she didn't have under control: her love life. All that changes when she meets sexy, free-spirited Brian Kelly (Simon Baker). But when her ideal man (Blair Underwood) arrives on the scene, Kenya must decide between the relationship everyone expects and the romance no one expected.

What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this romantic comedy takes up a serious theme, the tensions that emerge in interracial dating. It features sexual references and situations, including a couple of gentle kissing scenes and one gently framed sex scene (body parts and faces in close-up). Characters use slang for intercourse and genitalia (e.g., "hoochie," "bone"). At a comedy club, the routine, focused on interracial dating, includes jokes about the DC Sniper and white men being serial killers. Characters drink at parties and at dinner.
