Storyline

Love for Sale is a romantic comedy about Trey (Jackie Long), a twenty-something delivery guy that can't seem to catch a break. Trey's whole life is in shambles- no money for college, girls don't know he exists and his uncle's recording studio is about to be foreclosed. After a failed attempt to talk to the girl of his dreams, Kiely (Mya), Trey encounters the incredibly, beautiful Katherine (Melyssa Ford) while on delivery. The older woman falls for him despite their age difference. This seemingly perfect development soon proves to just complicate Trey's life even further. Written by Anonymous

Love for sale is a basically a simple(low-budget) black Comedy/Drama, but a real good one at that
26 October 2008 | by dbgotitSee all my reviews

Love for sale is a basically a simple(low-budget) black Comedy/Drama, but a real good one at that. Two of the main characters are from T.I.'s ATL movie and two others being Mya and Melyssa Ford. It has the same kind of feeling as ATL, but a little different, but basically the whole down south thing. But it's much more than that as well. I don't want to say to much about the plot, but it incorporates a love triangle sort of thing, an out of date, but good record studio trying to be saved from closing and a small black business (restaurant, and other things in one place, run by a black loving white older man and a white hating black man, who are tight ironically, and the black guy always talks about how evil white people are, and the white guy keeps crying and saying "I don't understand why white people are so bad" ... you will laugh your a$$ off). Maybe this movie didn't have the kind of budget as all of the "big" Hollywood movies, but it's just that, it's Hollyhood. You could say the plot was predictable, that the acting wasn't perfect, but still, you watch this movie, have a few good laughs, enjoy it, and when you are deep into the movie, you will just keep hoping that it won't end for a long time. It's definitely a feel good movie. I could basically recommend this to everybody. You'll have a good time watching it, trust me.
