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 »

Great Movie
14 March 2006 | by djhitemSee all my reviews

This is really an excellent movie. It needs to be in Theatres. Sean Blakemore was outstanding and this is the best acting I've ever seen Robin Givens do. Also, the writer and director who is also in the film did an extraordinary job as director and actor, something rarely seen in Hollywood. I give him major props for wearing all the hats and wearing them well. He also wrote the film. I like watching him on EVE. He's funny and in this movie he's funny and dramatic. And N'Bushe Wright is no joke. I didn't know she was as funny as she was. It was great seeing her in a comedic role. I really like, one of my favorite actresses. It was also good seeing Uncle Phil - James Avery, he played a heck of a judge. This was really a great movie.
