35 & Ticking: A midly enjoyable take on modern relationships

By: Da'Mon Guy

     35 & Ticking is a fairly mundane, lackluster narrative that attempts to address the positive and negative dynamics of love and friendship. The film tries to use the lives of four childhood friends to showcase the different situations that people face in the pursuit of happiness. The film stars Tamala Jones (Tamala Jones), Nicole Ari Parker (Black Dynamite), Keith Robinson (Dear John), Wendy Raquel Robinson (Something New), Kevin Hart (Little Fockers), Darius McCray (Next Day Air), Mike Epps (Jumping The Broom), and Megan Good (Jumping The Broom).

     35 & Ticking is a humdrum, disjointed story which offers a mildly enjoyable combination of drama and comedy. The film premiered in limited release in 2011. It’s a movie that covers a multitude of relationship issues that are prevalent in modern society. One of the overriding themes of the film addresses is the self induced biological clock that society tends to place on women to have the desire to have a child by a certain age. In addition, the film attempts to provide a modern outlook on multiple aspects of heterosexual interactions, from relationships to dating to marriage.
