Tragedy before responsibility
6 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Just as seen in The Kite Runner, a tragedy has to occur before responsibility is accepted.

I would not have given this film a glance were it not for the fact that Cynda Williams got star billing. It is definitely for those who are fans only.

In what is probably a common occurrence, she becomes pregnant and her boyfriend/lover/partner Mushond Lee (2001 Maniacs) is reluctant to accept full responsibility and marry her.

He spends his time with his group of four friends, while she is with her group. Some may feel that Cynda's friends are part of the problem, as they are telling her to force the issue, but the male group is just as bad. They may be questioning when he is going to marry, but their behavior suggests that conquests of women is the sole goal in life.

Sure, things may end up in the right way, but not before the issue is forced with a huge tragedy. It was if fate seemed to push one into a right decision.

The one thing that spoiled what was a fair look at the sexes, was the presence of the typical black stereotypical drunk that just went on for too too long.
