All About You is a 2001 African American romantic comedy film that was written and directed by Christine Swanson.[1] The film stars Renee Goldsberry as a woman who tries to find love and ends up in a complicated romantic triangle. The film had its world premiere on August 4, 2001, at the Urbanworld Film Festival. Swanson initially had some difficulty in finding a distributor for the film, as distributors stated it was "not edgy enough".[2]

Swanson released a followup entitled All About Us in 2007.

Just as Nicole and Brian realize they have feelings for each other, Robbie wants to try a relationship with Nicole again.
