Ready to feel old? It’s been 20, yes, TWENTY, years since the release of the romantic movie Love Jones.
In this classic flick, Darius (Larenz Tate) and Nina (Nia Long) meet at a poetry lounge in their hometown of Chicago and forge a love affair that is passionate, but experiences many twists and turns. This is far from a storybook romance, which is what we love most about it. The screenplay gets major cool points for speaking to the dating struggles of us average joes.
You may remember that halfway through the movie, Nina has a brief fling with Darius’s frenemy Hollywood (Bill Bellamy) while she and Darius are on a break. The plot thickens once these total opposites try to claim the heart of same woman using very different game. You may think you’d know who to choose if you were Nina, but are you really sure? Ladies, take this brief quiz to see who you’d likely end up with if you were in Nina’s shoes.
