In the Mix

Rated PG-13 95 minutes 2005

Usher plays popular nightclub DJ Darrell, who gets an offer to spin at the birthday party of an old childhood friend named Dolly (Emmanuelle Chriqui). Darrell hasn't seen Dolly in years, but agrees to do the party for free as a favor to her father, Frank (Chazz Palminteri). See, Darrell's late father was Frank's favorite personal bartender. Dolly has grown up to be a total hottie, and her father is a successful Italian American businessman, which, in the movies, means he's obviously in the Mafia. During Dolly's party, unnamed assailants attempt a drive-by shooting of Frank, but Darrell takes the bullet instead. He is then nursed back to health at Frank's rural estate; eventually, when Frank insists that Dolly select a bodyguard from anyone in the house, she chooses Darrell. All of these plot developments seem half-hearted -- which is a shame, because the star has the charm to succeed if given a better movie. As for director Ron Underwood (City Slickers) . . . what the hell happened?
