Plot Summary
The story of Jody (Tyrese Gibson), a misguided, 20-year-old African-American who is really just a baby boy finally forced-kicking and screaming to face the commitments of real life. Streetwise and jobless, he has not only fathered two children by two different women-Yvette (Taraji P. Henson) and Peanut (Tamara LaSeon Bass) but still lives with his own mother. He can't seem to strike a balance or find direction in his chaotic life.

  • Lacks the cumulative impact of "Boyz," since Singleton allows repetition and sermonizing to dull his theme about the infantilization of black males. But Baby Boy leaves you shaken. show more

  • Now Singleton, too, dares to take a hard look at his community. His characters are a little older, and he is older, too, and less forgiving. show more

  • An easy movie to pick apart, but it lives, breathes and switches moods from humor to despair better than any American release this year. show more
