Something New ★★ ½ 2006 (PG-13)

Interracial romance with two completely delectable leads. Kenya (Lathan) is a successful African-American accountant who's too busy for romance. She does agree to a blind date, only to discover it's with the very white Brian (Baker), an affable landscape architect. She rejects him as boyfriend material but hires him to redo her pathetic backyard. Kenya then tries to resist his wooing, especially when her upscale family and friends don't approve. Then IBM (Ideal Black Man) Mark (Underwood) enters the picture and Kenya must decide if she can get past her own prejudices and find that happy ending. 100m/C DVD .
