Did You Know?


During Russ' party, the characters are playing Spades. Diane plays the Ace of Spades, and then Dontae plays the low Joker. Russ then captures all the cards of that hand with the high Joker. Afterwards, Diane criticizes Dontae, saying that he should not have played the low Joker during that hand because the high Joker had not been played yet. Meaning that whoever had the high Joker could take that hand (as Russ did). However, per the rules of Spades, a player must put down the same suit that the first player of that round lays down UNLESS the player is holding no cards of that suit. Diane laid down the Ace of Spades. Dontae was only holding the low Joker (which is considered a Spade) and the eight of Hearts. So he had no choice but to play the low Joker, even though he may not have wanted to do so. See more »

With a riveting story line
6 June 2009 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

In Reggie Gaskins' latest film, Restraining Order, you'll get an opportunity to see the works of Robin Givens, as well as the phenomenal performance of Sean Blakemore, who continues to show the world that he has what it takes to bring such a thrilling novel alive. The storyline flowed tremendously well, and as Diane(Robin) tries to separate herself from a marriage that she no longer wants to be in, Dontae(Sean) ain't having it. Like many men who put forth every effort to "take care of home", Dontae is stunned by his wife's sudden non interest and he turns into a crazed individual. A divorce is not an option for him and the story has a traumatic ending, proving that honesty is definitely the best policy. The most enjoyable thing about this movie is the ability to keep the viewer speculating and wondering who the other man is. Once the individual was revealed, it was a shocker and I certainly didn't see it coming. No doubt, this is one to add to your DVD collection.

James Avery, Robin Givens, N'Bushe Wright, Mari Morrow, Reggie Gaskins
