low budget, but not bad example of LA hood genre
19 March 2002 | by See all my reviews

If you are a cynical person then you might watch this all the way thru. There is violence (or the danger of violence) plus the requisite love scene. Pretty good acting (especially Terence Stamp) gets you thru the clichés in the script.

A racetrack milieu is involved. Note the title of the movie, which is both a banal comment on the ambiguous nature of relationships, and the name of a race horse - in the 'Baby' race! (that horse has no role in the plot, that I remember).

This movie is a bit better written than your average hood flick (I gave it a 6 out of 10).
