It's About That Time...Romcom Season

I know what you're probably thinking: When isn't it romcom season? Well, the short answer is never. But trust me, I will get about 10 more romcom trailers flooding my inbox between now and February 14, even if the films aren't even coming out on Valentine's Day. Like THE PERFECT MATCH, for instance, the Queen Latifah-produced cinematic romp starring Terrence J. (Think Like a Man), Paula Patton (Precious, About Last Night), Donald Faison (Clueless, Something New), Dascha Polanco (Joy, Orange is the New Black), Brandy Norwood (Broadway's Chicago, Moesha)...and a slew of other R&B singers.

Directed by Billie Woodruff (Honey, TV's The Game), THE PERFECT MATCH looks like most other romcoms in which the lead male characters is a playboy avoiding true love until love smacks him in the b*lls. Of course, Lionsgate/Codeblack Films has a more sophisticated description:

In THE PERFECT MATCH, Charlie (Terrence J.) is a playboy who's convinced that relationships are dead even though his sister (Paula Patton), a therapist, tries to tell him otherwise. His best friends bet him that if he sticks to one woman for one month, he's bound to fall in love. Charlie takes the bet because he believes that he's immune to love... until he crosses paths with the beautiful and mysterious Eva (Cassie Ventura). Turning on his irresistible charm, Charlie coaxes Eva into a casual affair but soon finds out that Eva has turned the tables on him. Now Charlie is questioning whether he may actually want more than just a one night stand.

See? Watch the trailer:
