Trivia

Director/Writer/Producer/Editor Shavar Ross secured a home video (DVD) and cable/broadcast television rights deal for the project before a script was ever written. Barry Gordon, Vice-President of Acquisitions at Image Entertainment was so impressed with Shavar's 35 minute short film entitled, "A Taste of Us", that a full length feature film was requested. The only thing was, Shavar's short was originally a drama pilot presentation for the new TV ONE Network and was based on the civil unrest of the 1960's. Shavar simply kept the title "A Taste of Us" to appease his distributor and came up with a whole new concept, and storyline, conforming a script into an inspirational romantic comedy. See more »

Best Sleeper of This Year's Films
30 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This under-promoted movie was a delightful surprise. Well-directed, charming, funny, sweet... and does the camera ever love Nadia Turner as "Kayla"! Hope to see more of this sexy and beautiful newcomer in future films. Also delightful were Joe Clair as the lovable loser "Jewels" and Johnny Brown as the Rev. Thomas's opportunistic brother, "Cephas." Bill Tolliver as the "Rev. Henry Thomas" brought dignity and pathos to his grieving character, and one would expect no less of this fine actor.

The out-takes on the DVD are worth watching. They give the viewer an insight into each actor's approach to their role, as well as a delightful glimpse into the camaraderie of this ensemble.

After renting the movie, I have now purchased it. I want to watch it again. Two thumbs way up.
