Michelle Robinson gets dressed to meet with a summer intern at her law firm to go to a community meeting at 1. Although she is dressing to impress, she assures her parents, that this is not a date. Barack Obama, sits back and waits to the last minute to get dress and picks up Michelle for their date (he hopes). When he is late, chain smokes, and has a hole in the bottom of his car, Michelle, annoyed and shocked, carries on to go to the meeting. Barack then informs Michelle that he lied about the start time for the meeting, so he could have more time with her. The meeting starts a 4. Michelle makes her feelings known that dating the new guy is a bad image for her at the firm; but Barack can see that she her unhappiness is flows deeper. With time, the two learn about each other, “read” each other, and make a historical impression on each other.

This is a true date movie. Although, it does focus on the first date of Michelle and Barack Obama, it could be any couple and be just as good. Tika and Parker play the lead roles to an extreme accuracy. When Parker gives a speech, he has the same volume, inflections, and pace we have come accustom to hearing from the President. It is easy to see how this date could have fallen apart at any moment, but both stayed strong and saw it through to the end. This will make you look at your date or spouse in a new light. First impressions may not be the best, but it’s better if it is honest. This is worth seeing with the one you hope to love or do love.

I give it 3.5 out of 5 stars

He’s a colleague – Michelle Robinson

So, why isn’t this a date – Marian Robinson

It’s not a date, until you say it is – Barack Obama
