IN THE MIX

Geelong Advertiser - TV Guide - - MOVIES -

SEVEN, Mon­day, 12pm, M ( 2005)

Af­ter con­quer­ing the mu­sic world, ul­tra- smooth hip- hop artist Usher makes his first play at the big screen with this ve­hi­cle from on­ce­promis­ing di­rec­tor Ron Un­der­wood ( City Slick­ers). He plays as­pir­ing hip- hop DJ Dar­rell Wil­liams, whose fam­ily friend­ship with mob boss Frank Pa­celli ( Chazz Palminteri) and quick think­ing dur­ing a drive- by shoot­ing leads to a prime gig as body­guard to Don Pa­celli’s daugh­ter Dolly ( Em­manuelle Chriqui, pic­tured). The gang­ster el­e­ments mix un­easily with the hip- hop thrust of the story, but Usher oozes charisma and his ef­forts should elicit swoons from fans.
