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 »

Give Ski Trip A Try
27 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am actually surprised that more people did not like the film. I know that it was "low-budget", but a lot of good movies are "low-budget" and are still worth watching. I think the storyline was very fresh and rarely seen: Black gay men living in New York and dealing with life after 30 and there is hope, love and even a few laughs to help you make it through. I think also that it showed the diversity that exists even within the black same-gender loving community. The characters were ones that we were familiar with...or so we thought and then now they are presented in a different light, which makes us think about them, and perhaps ourselves, differently. Honestly, as soon as the movie started and I saw the tell-tell "low-budget" look to the set, I wanted to turn it off, but, I am glad that I gave it a chance and it proved itself worthy.
