My Favorite Five is 2015 romantic comedy-drama film produced by Powell Robinson, its director and editor, directed by Paul D. Hannah, and written by Brian W. Smith. Starring several Hollywood icons such as Rochelle Aytes, Brian White, and DeRay Davis, My Favorite Five follows the story of Hailey (Rochelle Aytes), a self-made CEO of a successful dating website who has a list of five ideal traits she wants in a man. Hailey consequently meets and dates a string of seemingly perfect guys, but always finds something wrong. She, however, finds herself in a conflicting love triangle when, unexpectedly, her childhood friend, Christopher (Brian White), subscribes to her dating service and begins to woo her. As she grapples with Christopher's newfound feelings for her, Hailey also experiences a quarrel with her best friend, Monica (Erin Christine Buckley), and as she reevaluates her constructs of a perfect man, she faces the possibility that the love of her life has been by her side all along.

The movie opens with Hailey dressed as a fairy, hosting her friend's birthday party. When one of the guests asks her about her five perfect traits for a man, she tells them that it all began when she was a child and decided that these traits would be what love was made up of. Hailey presents her friend, Monica, with a lavish gift- a guy who fits her friend's attributes of a perfect man, and this gift sets the overarching tone of the movie. My Favorite Five revolves around a group of friends living in Los Angeles and their varying love lives. Hailey, the lead character, has been running a successful dating website for five years, and still, she cannot seem to find the perfect man with the ideal characteristics on her list. The film explores whether Hailey's notions about love and qualities in men are preventing her from finding love.

Hailey meets a string of good-looking men with traits that align with her list. However, none of these men seem to fulfill all of her criteria. As an example, the tall, dark, and handsome-man, Timothy, seems to have it all but is a smoker, which is a deal-breaker for Hailey. The charming, Randall, is a recovering alcoholic, and Daniel, beautiful and witty, struggles to keep his room clean. In a bid to continue her search, she installs her dating service application, giving her increased access to her dating pool. Moreover, Christopher, Hailey's childhood friend, joins the service incognito, unbeknownst to Hailey, and starts wooing her. Hailey is initially unaware of his true identity and judiciously dismisses him before realizing the truth.

As Hailey overhauls her annual list of love attributes and allows her friendship with Christopher to blossom, Monica deals with her own torn emotions as she takes a break from her cheating boyfriend, Quinton. Her relationship turmoil culminates in a dramatic confrontation that threatens to jeopardize her lifelong friendship with Hailey.

My Favorite Five is a lighthearted and relatable film that follows the adventurous and colorful love lives of its characters. Kelly Bennet's costume direction is spot-on, with Hailey's whimsical outfits effortlessly capturing her character's creativity and exuberance. The Los Angeles backdrop, with its scenic cars and iconic architecture, contributes to the movie's visual appeal. The film's interracial cast adds to the movie's dynamic element, with interracial romance in Hannah's oeuvre being recurrent. The performances of the characters by Aytes, White, and Davis are masterful, with the intense and heartfelt emotions shared between Hailey and Christopher adding to the film's overall charm.

In conclusion, My Favorite Five teaches us that love is not limited to a checklist of characteristics. The film also highlights the importance of communication and attentive listening as the key ingredients to successful relationships. My Favorite Five is an engaging and uplifting movie that combines drama, comedy, and romance, making it a definite must-watch.

My Favorite Five is a 2015 comedy with a runtime of 1 hour and 33 minutes. It has received moderate reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.3.
