    This one is my favorite!!! It showed black professionals dressed to the nines, in a black-owned business and living life to the fullest!!! Love it!!!

    This is always a favorite in my household as my honey and I were in our twenties when this came out and was actually working at the World Financial Center /World Trade Center/ Tribeca area where this film was made. So we got a chance to see the full production on the weekends/late nights when the Hudlin Brothers were shooting the film. To this day, we have great memories of this film and the time period. Miss those days, brothers and sisters were working it at the time, we all were Marcus, Angela, knew a Jacqueline, and hung out with Tyler and Gerards. I think I’ll play this tonight!

    Yes, def. a classic ladies! I think we all loved the setting, the casting, and the fashion. @Moni, that HAD to have been so awesome to see the production and also to see your own lives mirrored (for the first time really in decades) of black professionals living it up in NY. I watched that and was inspired!

    The film also inspired countless individuals to pursue careers in advertising and marketing, and is actually the inspiration for our non-profit, The Marcus Graham Project. So excited that the film is celebrating its 20th Anniversary this year.

    This movie was ahead of its time (did anyone other than me notice that Marcus had a plasma screen tv? In 1992?!?!) The cast was legendary and the cinematography was incredible. One of my top 2 movies of all time. Not BLACK movies, movies period.

    Yes Marcus, you are so right! And just the depiction of black professionals is historic… the look, the ownership, the atmosphere — just amazing. I didn’t notice the plasma screen! I’ll look out for that the next time I watch this. And let’s not forget the soundtrack as well. That was R&B at its best.
