dark comedy - pun intented
shazam1950 from United States
28 December 2010
For me it was a good movie. A realistic look through at least 4
perspectives of marriage, relations. divorce. custody, court issues.
infidelity, adultery, jealousy, bureaucratic mistakes, red tape, and
and human foibles involved in out of control hormones and personal
agendas. I know those are a lot of issues jammed into a low budget
straight for DVD movie. It uses racial disparity to show that these
topics are not limited to just one narrow spectrum. The film starts off
with a woman's criteria (passed from her mother) of a man's worth as a
husband - a job, a car, and a home. The second story line concerns a
Latino mother with 3 kids having an affair (her husband is in prison).
Third storyline is a successful business man finds his wife cheating on
him. the fourth plot line is the divorce judge having a clandestine
tryst with his clerk. The characters are a racially mixed batch which
is good representation of the demographic of L.A. IMDb does not have
very many details about this production. It reminds me of the gradual
tone of the movie WAR OF THE ROSES. It started like a typical low brow
comedy with sex driven parodies but with character development and the
down to earth casting of mostly unknown but realistic looking actors it
seemed to have a documentary feel that impressed me.
