Picks and Pans Review: Woo
This one is a real stinker. A romantic comedy, it's such a sloppy mess that polishing it with all the Pledge in the world couldn't help brighten it up.
Woo's story is familiar: A long evening spent in the company of a wacky, impulsive gal named Woo (Pinkett Smith) completely rocks the world of a straitlaced guy (Davidson). Bringing Up Baby, Something Wild and even Addicted to Love have all done it better. Don't blame the talented Pinkett Smith (Set It Off), who's trying hard. But she's just one woman, she can't do it all, and she certainly gets no help from a lame, unfunny script and Daisy V.S. Mayer's (Party Girl) hapless direction. (R)
Bottom Line: Pitch Woo as far out the window as you can
