Wonderful More than 1 year ago
Sweet movie. Wesley Snipes is one of my favorite male actors. From the movie, I find that is so much easier to be up front with each other. I would have preferred being friends first, but life is choice. I read the book before the movie was out. The book is excellent and goes into much more detail. A very sweet love story!

This was a great movie! Gina Prince Blythwood amaized me again. Sanaa Lathan and Wesley Snipes take you deep into the souls of the characters they so greatly portrayed.

I believe this is the BEST Africian American movie put to screen. The actors, the movie, the message (outstanding). Words can not express the depth of graitude in knowing there are performers willing to interpret positive messages in the black community about striving to have something good in life as well as love, this movie has convince me that I can have it all. And thank-you Sanaa for truly representing a size 14 woman in the movie.

I think anyone that has or has had a relationship can sympathize with this film. The scenes and the plot was so realistic and wonderfully played by these 2 actors. Sanna Lathan is becoming one of my favorite actresses. She's talented and beautiful. Only a movie this good can make a girl stay up until 3 in the morning crying and laughing alone. I loved it and i would watch it 100x

Disapearing acts is a romantic yet realistic drama. Entertaining your every thought of any and every relationship you've ever taken part in.

Recorded this off satellite casually at 2am and was blown away by the depth of direction and acting. First class characterisation. First class story line and a sensible black film as well by the way. SANAA LATHAN I love you! even though I prefer you with the extra 20lbs you have in the film. I will see all of her films now. Wesley Snipes does well.
