Goofs

During Russ' party, the characters are playing Spades. Diane plays the Ace of Spades, and then Dontae plays the low Joker. Russ then captures all the cards of that hand with the high Joker. Afterwards, Diane criticizes Dontae, saying that he should not have played the low Joker during that hand because the high Joker had not been played yet. Meaning that whoever had the high Joker could take that hand (as Russ did). However, per the rules of Spades, a player must put down the same suit that the first player of that round lays down UNLESS the player is holding no cards of that suit. Diane laid down the Ace of Spades. Dontae was only holding the low Joker (which is considered a Spade) and the eight of Hearts. So he had no choice but to play the low Joker, even though he may not have wanted to do so. See more »

A Powerful Movie
27 March 2007 | by bless1See all my reviews

This is one powerful movie. After you have seen it, the situations involved within the movie will linger around inside your head a while. It will certainly make you think. This is by far one of actor Sean Blakemore's best. He and Robin Givens go well together in this movie. They both are great actors(actresses). The only major draw back from this movie is that it is low budget. It is definitely worth seeing! Producer/Director Reggie Gaskins who also stars in this film was not a natural for the role that he played. He was decent, but the character that he played would have fit someone else better. Last but not least, the beautiful Mari Morrow. She always somehow seem to fit right in with movies like this( you should see her in the movie Uninvited Guest) You will always try to figure out the ending. You're in for a surprise! Enjoy!
