Terence Winter was very unhappy with the movie, claiming his screenplay is not the one that ended up on screen. See more »
When Marcus gets his Mercedes Benz S500, he starts playing his Window Shopper song. He was listening to his demo tape, driving to a meeting with a producer that was going to listen to his demo. See more »
This movie is horrendous. The terrific directing cannot separate the fact that this movie is perhaps one of the worst 'I sell records, why not make an album?' movies ever. He cannot act, sounds like he is reading his lines from a textbook, and his feelings range from dumb to ohmygod! The visual style of this movie acts, and the whole film seems like a horrible stereotype developed by racists (of all colors) who see inner city blacks as nothing but criminals. It is a shame that nice movies set to an African American theme flop, but movies that showcase the worst in society that affect kids do so well.
If you act like a criminal, you will be rich. Nice.
