1. 30 Minute Man
It's a funny movie. Kevin Hart is in the film and he was literally knocked this out on set in 30 minutes. He was able to improv. He was just brilliant. I really appreciate his relationship and friendship. It's a lot of [subliminal jokes] you have to pay attention throughout the film. You're going to see there's scenes where there's jokes within jokes. We have nuggets of different things. We even mentioned the moment when Kanye West took the microphone from Taylor Swift's hands [during the VMA Awards in 2009]. If you're a fan of hip-hop, you're going to pick up those things.
2. Old School, New School Need To Know This
It's relatable. Anyone can relate to this film. No matter what age you are, we've all been in relationships even if you're 12. I can remember being 5-years-old and I had two girls. All right? I had to get rid of one of them. So whether you're a kid or completely grown up, you're gonna be able to relate to this. The strategy was to make this come out around Valentine's Day, when relationships are in full effect.
3. Urban Legend
The third reason is because it's not your typical urban film. It's not a violent film and it's not about people going through struggles. It's really something people can relate to. It just so happens that the actors and the writer of the film are African-American. When I first read the script, I was really impressed. When I got the script, I just knew I had to do it. From the beginning I read the script, I knew it was something different and a void we were filling by making this movie. This was a dream come true.
4. Comedy Central
Number four is because if you're a fan of Anchor Man or 40-Year-Old Virgin, this is a film I would like to say compares to that. It has an African-American cast. I hope I'm not saying the same thing twice, but if you're a fan of those films, you're going to like this.
5. The Methodology
The final reason is because if you need to break up with someone, this film will do it for you. You don't even have to do it. You can just go see the film, say "Man, I thought we were in a good relationship but this film is showing me how to break-up." This film is going to do the breaking up for you. Just follow the main character. You can break up anytime of the year, especially on Valentine's Day. You'll see this film and [recognize] it's not just a "guy break-up film". There are women out there who can learn how to break-up too. You're going to see all of these different exit strategies used in the film and you're going to say, "Man, why can't he just be honest?" It's like [showing you] mirror reflection for yourself. So we're showing you how to break up and you can choose what exit strategy might work best for you.
