      10% 40 Reviews Tomatometer 62% 5,000+ Ratings Audience Score Woo (Jada Pinkett Smith) is a woman in control of her world. She is smart, self-confident, sophisticated and snarky. And she doesn't have any trouble attracting members of the opposite sex. But for some reason no one ever sticks around. Woo meets Tim (Tommy Davidson), a paralegal who is her complete opposite. They shouldn't click. However, Woo and Tim begin to bond when a series of weird and stressful calamities hits them while they are on their first date.

      m v Charming. A slice of 90's glam and club rolled up in adorable Jada! I don't understand why this was not more popular-Chapelle in the Chicken Ho scene makes me rock with laughter! Well worth a watch-I have probably seen it over a dozen times and it is one of my 'go-to' movies for date night. Tommy and Jada were a good match! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/04/24 Full Review Audience Member As a long time Chappelle fan i'm very disappointed to learn who he has turned into, in his years outside the limelight. When i heard of his comeback i was excited for the fresh and touching way Chappelle could bring social issues alive. But he has changed into an out of touch cynic in his years of isolation and finally his thoughts have developed into misogyny, homophobia and ignorance. I wish he wouldn't have made a comeback, because we don't need this version of Chappelle. But i guess he needed the money. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Audience Member I love this Movie most definitely top 3, so underrated and hated on This movie was amazing Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/15/23 Full Review Audience Member What's the 411? Tim is the butt of all his friend's jokes, because when it comes to the ladies, he has no game at all. One day he is set up with an eccentric, energetic, and influential lady named Woo. Her style flips him upside down and she appears to be too much woman for him to handle; however, sometimes opposites attract... "Put my fire out." Daisy von Scherler Mayer, director of Some Girl(s), Frenemies, More of Me, The Guru, Madeline, and Party Girl, delivers Woo in her second major motion picture. The storyline for this is mediocre with some dated one-liners and unique characters. The acting is fairly average and the cast includes Jada Pinkett, Tommy Davidson, Duane Martin, Michael Ralph, Dave Chappelle, LL Cool J, and Foxy Brown. "You're too fine for your own good." I came across this on HBOGO and decided to give it a shot. This was a very average picture that was cliché and felt a little like House Party (corny but you still want to see how it unfolds). Overall, this isn't really worth your time. "That's my song!" Grade: C- Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Audience Member still makes me laugh, feel good and reminds me of te 90's Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Really and truly not funny.

      Monica Eng Chicago Tribune Pinkett Smith, who was so good in her supporting role in The Nutty Professor, is here little more than a mannequin for skimpy clothes. Rated: 0.5/4 Jul 26, 2014 Full Review Dave Kehr New York Daily News A romantic comedy that strains for the screwball heights of Bringing Up Baby but mainly seems unfunny and unpleasant. Rated: 1/4 Jul 26, 2014 Full Review Melanie McFarland Seattle Times Woo disappoints on so many levels, lacking in wit and intelligence, characters with any sense of dimension and a coherent story line. Rated: 1.5/4 Jul 26, 2014 Full Review Matt Soergel Florida Times-Union Pinkett Smith does just fine. She's sexy, funny and ironic and carries Woo as it ambles all over a Brooklyn night that's one long party. Jul 26, 2014 Full Review Jo Berry Radio Times [A] truly awful disaster. Rated: 1/5 Jul 26, 2014 Full Review Forrest Green III Metro Times (Detroit, MI) Initially, Woo seems every bit the fun dating film that's guaranteed to give urban 20-somethings their six bucks of fulfillment. Unsurprisingly, it's no more than that, although at times its tenuous jokes add up to a bit less. Rated: 2.5/5 Jul 26, 2014 Full Review Read all reviews
