Deliver Us from Eva

Genre: Romance, Comedy; Starring: LL Cool J, Gabrielle Union, Essence Atkins, Meagan Good, Robinne Lee, Duane Martin; Director: Gary Hardwick; Author: Barbara Brauner, Gary Hardwick, James Iver Mattson; Release Date Wide: 02/07/2003; Runtime (in minutes): 105; MPAA Rating: R; Distributor: Focus Features

Gabrielle Union plays a Taming of the Shrew-ish piece of work who meets her match in LL Cool J as a gentleman strong enough to wrestle her into releasing her hidden gentleness. Then other, unremarkable sitcom problems arise in this very tame African-American comedy, which is much ado about zilch. (For those who catalog such scenes, much female bonding occurs in a beauty salon where Eva and her sisters high-five and mmm-hmmm each other.)
