"Seems to speak to a continually-budding generation of Twitter-philes that are equal parts socially aware and self-obsessed." — Dan Mecca, The Film Stage

"A welcome change of pace compared to the conventional tripe that comes off Hollywood’s assembly line." — Nick Spake, Flickreel

Ray (Brice), 100% player and lightly employed writer of the blog “Occasionally Dating Black Women,” is begging for comeuppance in this snappy romantic comedy with a knack for just desserts. Ray meets his match in Rochelle (Wise), a fellow writer with a high-powered career and a healthy disdain for his bed-hopping ways. Heartlessness and thoughtlessness make for a lethal cocktail when this cocky would-be suitor, one foot in mouth, lets his finger do the talking by hitting “send” too soon, for a viral reaction he’ll live to regret. (BS)

Note: Includes nudity and sexual activity.
