Shows Promise, But Falls Short of Potential
16 March 1999 | by IboChildSee all my reviews

A vast improvement over his absolutely dreadful first film. In this film, the director seems to be trying to make a statement about materialistic women. Unfortunately, the male protagonist is such a self-pitying slacker, that his girlfriend's ultimate rejection of him seems understandable. This film is strictly for die hard Salli Richardson fans.
