Something New on DVD

The romantic comedy Something New arrives on DVD May 16, 2006 from Universal Studios Home Entertainment. Something New is a film about a woman who knows where she’ s headed in business but has lost her way in affairs of the heart.

The cast is headed by Sanaa Lathan (Alien vs. Predator, Love and Basketball) and Simon Baker (Land of the Dead, The Ring Two), with Blair Underwood (Sex & the City, Rules of Engagement), Mike Epps (Roll Bounce, The Honeymooners), Alfre Woodard (Desperate Housewives, The Forgotten), Donald Faison ( " Scrubs, " Remember the Titans), Golden Brooks (Girlfriends, Beauty Shop), and Taraji P. Henson (Hustle & Flow, Four Brothers). In her directorial feature debut, Sanaa Hamri delivers a romance with a twist.

Two worlds collide as Something New unfolds against the luminous backdrop of multicultural Los Angeles. Kenya Denise McQueen (Sanaa Lathan), a beautiful, high-powered career woman, knew exactly what she wanted in a man, but with her busy life, she didn' t think she'd ever find it. While Kenya and her girlfriends, Cheryl, Suzzette and Nedra, are having fun and looking for love, she finds herself unexpectedly falling for a man (Simon Baker) outside of her social circle. The DVD is priced at $29.98 SRP. Preorder close is April 11, 2006.

Kenya Denise McQueen (Sanaa Lathan) appears to have it all - beauty, brains and a prestigious job at a top accounting firm. She also has a long list of requirements for the type of man she wants to marry, but she's not having much luck finding someone who fits the bill. Dispirited after hearing that over 42 % of African American women never marry, Kenya impulsively agrees to a blind date with Brian Kelly (Simon Baker), a sexy, free-spirited landscape architect, who isn't exactly what she pictured for herself. While not the man she had in mind for romance, she hires him to fix up the yard of her new house and finds herself irresistibly drawn to his earthy, laid-back charm. When she finally meets her theoretically perfect match, corporate attorney Mark (Blair Underwood), Kenya is further thrown into confusion. Everybody has an opinion, from her trio of girlfriends Cheryl, Suzzette, and Nedra (Wendy Raquel Robinson, Golden Brooks, Taraji P. Henson) to her socially prominent parents Joyce and Edmond (Alfre Woodard, Earl Billings). Ultimately, Kenya must decide between the relationship everyone expects and the romance no one expected.
