Movie synopsis
Director John Singleton (BOYZ IN THE HOOD, SHAFT) revisits to South Central L.A. with BABY BOY. Former Calvin Klein model Tyrese Gibson stars as Jody, a smooth-talking but immature black male who has children from two different women. One of them, Yvette (Taraji P. Henson), wants him to be faithful and move in with her, but Jody prefers his room at Mom's (A.J. Johnson) house, and his life of aimless womanizing and hanging out with neighborhood pal Sweet Pea (Omar Gooding). However, this childhood paradise seems about to destruct with the arrival of Mom's new ex-con boyfriend, Melvin (Ving Rhames). And when a dangerous former lover of Yvette's (Snoop Doggy Dogg in a nicely unsympathetic performance) gets out of jail and moves back in, the stage is set for Jody to either stand up like a man, or die in the attempt.Singleton tells the story in a series of vibrant vignettes, and though he supplies plenty of crowd-pleasing sex and violence, the focus remains on his characters. A rich score of old and new rap and R&B gives the film a nice boost, and Rhames is superb as the aging former thug trying to find happiness with Jody's mom.

The Movie

Baby Boy is my favorite movie of all time. I love John Singleton. He is a great director and this movie baby boy spreads a good message about being a man so you can also be father at the same time. Yeah when i recieved the movie it was loose in it's case and it did cause alot of scratching on the DVd but it still works like new. I want to say if any one has seen this movie they too can agree that it is a great movie.

Hood Classic ! !

Baby Boy is a hood classic! This movie gives a great depiction of life, love & relationships in African American life. The sex scenes at times can be a little too much, but overall, this is a great movie!

Baby Boy (DVD, 2001, Special Edition)

Bought this move for my wife who knows every line to this movie. To me, the movie was good as it dealt with Tyrese's character trying to find himself in regards to growing up and being a man for himself and his girlfriend. Good movie that will make you laugh and think back to your time as a single person dealing with relationships.

baby boy

I bought this movie a month ago . It is a great movie. Its a very underated movie in my opinion. It is in my top 10 favorite movies. The story line is strong and the acting is good. I would recommend this movie to anyone however there is drug use and very strong sex scenes.
