With This Ring (2015 telefilm/Sony DVD)

Picture: B Sound: C Extras: D Film: C+

Three best friends after attending one of their friend's wedding make a vow to get married within a year ...or they will marry the last man on Earth they would ever consider. Frustrated, frantic and female, they begin speed dating, blind dating, and online dating for the chance to meet Mr. Right. But what they find is how many men isn't 'Mr. Right', each one pulls out all the tricks of the trade in hopes to hook the right man and to beat each other to the alter in Nzingha Stewart's With This Ring (2015).

Trista (Regina Hall), Viviane (the great Jill Scott), and Amaya (awesome music artist Eve) don't want to be the last girl to get married. Feeling their time is running out the realize they either have to get married soon or they never will, but each one is hung up on their past, Trista still has feeling for her ex boyfriend (even thought he's cheated on her). Viviane is already a single mother but can't forget the father of her son. And Amaya is a young starlet who is looking to hook a billionaire superstar husband. The harder they look for a man, they begin to realize man they are all looking for is closer to them than they realize and has been there right there all along beside them.

This was a comedy about modern woman getting married. Woman who choose to be single and have a successful career usually look back and when they realize they ain't getting any younger, begin feeling desperate when men aren't looking their way anymore. A secret of marriage is the harder you try the less likely you'll succeed. Not bad for a TV movie, with supporting performances from Brooklyn Sudano, Deion Saunders and Gabrielle Union (who co-starred with Hall in The Honeymooners feature film) also star.

The anamorphically enhanced 1.78 X 1 image looks as good as this is going to short of Blu-ray, but the lossy Dolby Digital is a bit weak throughout. There are no extras, not even interviews.
