Only for fans of Braugher, Gossett and Townsend.
27 August 1999 | by (Marietta, GA, USA) – See all my reviews

This is a made-for-cable movie with three intertwining segments, one starring Robert Townsend, one with Louis Gossett Jr. and the third features Andre Braugher. Each man directed a segment as well, a first for each, I believe, but no one directed the one he starred in. The stories are all slices of life in an urban setting, with some of the same characters showing up in more than one segment. It might sound more interesting than it is, because there is nothing here that's really outstanding. All the stories are a little too ordinary and each man has done better work before. There's nothing bad here, but nothing distinguishing either. At best it's a fairly pleasant way to while away some free time.
