Can't Help But Like It--But Contrived
7 February 2004 | by artemis2854See all my reviews

Just caught this film on Black Starz.

I grew up on the very same street that this movie was filmed and can remember it actually being filmed. This is why I can't help but like it.

That aside, the story is rather dated by today's standards, and having grown up in "the neighborhood," I can honestly say that no one ever burned crosses on people's lawns or blew up their porches. As a matter of fact, by the time this was filmed, there were already a few black families on the block an no negative incidents had occurred. However, if anyone remembers Mr. Breslin's column in the Daily News, we all know what poetic license he was fond of taking.

Watch it, if not to see Olympia Dukakis before anyone knew who she was.
