Trivia

Because of the slim production budget, the director could not afford a full complement of extras for several scenes, especially the club scene. In order to make it look like there are enough people in the club scene, he reshot the same extras as many as five times, in changed wardrobe/costumes, in order to make it look like the club was properly crowded. Look closely, you will see some of the same faces multiple times, in different spots in the club, in different poses, wearing different wardrobe. See more »

I Really Enjoyed This Movie
22 July 2005 | by See all my reviews

I just saw this movie last night at a film festival. When it first began I thought to myself, not another "queen" or "club" movie. For a while it seemed like that was the direction that it was going in. For me things began to change a little when John Rankin who plays Omar appears on screen. As the movie goes on you see what an adorable character he is. He is the modest, down to earth, boy next door type. He is such a beautiful and charming man. He is totally believable in his role. I felt like I could fall in love with him because he is so my type. Omar is not the main character in the movie, but he was for me.

Getting back to the rest of the movie, things got better and this turned out to be a pretty good movie. There were good, unexpected twists in the plot that you didn't see coming. There were a lot of laughs and some good music. I felt that a few things about the ending didn't seem too realistic, but other than that I really liked this movie. There are not that many black, gay romance movies out there, so I give props to the writer, director and star Maurice Jamal for bringing his vision to the screen. This is my favorite movie of the year so far.
