Halle Berry’s flick tanked at the time but today is considered a pioneering rom-com and cult classic starring women of color on the silver screen at a time when that was far less common.
She said back in 2002 regarding the rom-com ‘B*A*P*S’:
Do I think that’s one of my best performances? Maybe not. But I know, for the community and my culture, I know what that means to us — as a people and as women.
