Trivia

Tim Alexander started his career as a fashion photographer with no real experience as a filmmaker. After a life of making bad choices in the women he chose to deal with, he decided to make this film, by himself as a crew of one, to show the world the challenges a good man has in a relationship. It was a personal challenge to tell his personal story through the lead character Jimmy Jean-Louis. Tim is now happily married with twin sons. See more »

Great movie, great message
29 May 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Tim Alexander's movie can show young black women who don't want to make the mistake of "living and learning" that there are good black men out there.

It is the job of the elder generation to share their experiences and show the young folk how to avoid making the same mistakes and have a better understanding of each other..who should not want that.

Loving each other should not be this hard..

Tim has taken on the job, out of love to try and wake up the village.

You sure won't see any movie of this importance to the community coming out of Hollywood.
