If you have Netflix and you’re looking for something to watch this holiday weekend, then I recommend The Incredible Jessica James starring Jessica Williams. I LOVED this movie! And take note that I’m not an all caps type of person.
Williams is known mostly for her role as senior correspondent on The Daily Show. I think she’s awesome. She’s funny, smart, sarcastic — black girl magic. And as she describes herself in the film, a cocoa queen.
Overall the film is fun and lighthearted. Something to take your mind away from all the bad news in the world for an hour and a half.
The character Jessica is a quirky young woman trying to find her place in the world and get over her ex-boyfriend. Also, she is a teacher and the scenes with her students are absolutely adorable.
What else? The film is sexy, romantic, sweet and inspiring. After having watched the movie, I was left wanting way more and hope that this movie can turn into an ongoing series. I want to see what happens next! You probably will too.
