Editorial Reviews

Chicago Reader - Jonathan Rosenbaum
The eccentric tics in Hav Plenty begin with the title--which conflates the first name of heroine Havilland Savage (Chenoa Maxwell) and the last name of hero Lee Plenty (Cherot)...;the periodic sound of amplified heartbeats and perhaps thunder; a series of sudden and seemingly unmotivated pratfalls; Plenty addressing occasional asides to the camera and viewer; and a plot that's doggedly anticliché, flouting every expectation.... [O]ne thing that makes Hav Plenty fresh is the absence of overt attention paid to the characters' blackness; the class difference between Plenty and everyone else is more of an issue than the racial or cultural background of anyone. And Plenty, a passive and emotionally evasive intellectual without much glamour and only a modicum of wit, is an unlikely romantic hero, which only adds to the sense that the movie is proceeding by countercliché...

    Not to be missed!!!

    The fact that this is based on the writer/director's true experience only makes this film "mo better." The characters are real and well fleshed out which is a rarity for African-Americans in film. The music of Babyface keeps the vibe of the movie on key but all credit goes to Christopher Scott Cherot for taking an uncomfortable situation in his life and turning it into a funny, entertaining and engaging film.

    Great

    I like this movie because it not only portrays african americans as being successful, it is a love story which shows the attraction between two people and the pitfalls that they have went through. The title is a very unique one at that. Hav Plenty, which was composed of the 2 main characters names, also had a biblical meaning. It is a great movie, and I recommend you see it.

    A great addition to the film library.

    Hav Plenty is an unusual romantic comedy because its characters are not the ''Usual Suspects.'' The all Black cast of characters are complicated, intelligent and classy. Hav Plenty is a favorite of mine because it validates what I have known for years...African Americans are uniquely diverse; they are complex and sophisticated.
