Synopsis

When the hottest DJ around (Usher) inadvertently saves the life of a Mafia princess (Chriqui), the reward for his bravery is a job protecting the woman from danger.

Dove Review

The RandB singer Usher attempts to toughen up his image, Godfather-style, in this film where he acts as a bodyguard for a mob boss’ daughter. This movie is an hour-and-a-half of two people flirting with each other, under the guise of a plot. “In The Mix” portrays the relationship between two grown adults as though they were immature high-school kids. That being said, the movie does address the issue of inter-racial relationships and the fact that these couples still frequently face prejudice from their families and society. Unfortunately, the people who made “In The Mix” took an issue that could have been compelling and ruined any serious discussion of the issue, just by making this dreadful movie. If you are looking for a catalyst for a discussion about inter-racial relationships, you can find a better one. Violence is made light of and carried out without negative consequences throughout this film, and the mafia is portrayed in a mostly humorous light.
