Storyline

The two black men (Anthony and Michael) are successful in the high tech world of Silicon Valley, and have known each other since childhood. The story takes place over the course of a day, when the couples get together for an afternoon of dining, drinking, and hot tubbing. Later, one of the wives is found dead in the hot tub, setting off a series of events that reveal their inner beliefs. Things turn dark as racism, paranoia, and the mistress come into play. This results in more deaths, until the ultimate realization that your thoughts and actions are more important than the color of your skin. Written by jazzmyne

I liked it
19 August 2005 | by Bill-459See all my reviews

Even though the movie was, in a lot of instances unbelievable, it sure held my attention. Why would the cops even consider a noise complaint during the middle of the day at a house set in a remote area? When the person was found in the hot tub why wouldn't that Victoria lady immediately call 911. She kept saying she wanted to call the police all the time.

I would have liked to have seen that R rating used better so we could have seen more of those good looking women -- if you know what I mean. This movie also struck me as a lot different than the movies you typically see on TV.
