    Pro:

    I'm a fan of Spike Lee. He tries to add depth and convey messages in his films --- msgs that admittedly go over the heads of most casual movie goers.

    Edit: I want to see the brother Spike succeed. Best believe that Spike is the last of a dying breed and probably the closest thing we've seen to a a true black activist/film maker in the last 30 years.


    Con:

    I hate the name of this film, that it's focus is violence in my city with a damn sex strike as the solution ---a higher budget version of 'A Miami Tail", a straight to dvd flick starring Trina:

    Eh she's older so she didn't really understand how popular Trina was at the time, she was proud of the message of the movie and she was happy that we were so interested in it. She said that Trina was cool but that she always showed up late and that it took hours for her to get her hair done. She said that Tweet and Missy Elliot showed up on set almost every day.


    ALOT of the movie was ad-libbed. She said the dude who played the comic relief pretty much freestyled his own lines but he was so hilarious it was cool.

    I saw a clip when Spike was on the Daily Show last night, and honestly it looked horrible, I wanted to change the channel just during the little clip, it was a group of women discussing the plan....His description of the movie left me cold too, and I think in the light of the latest 9 year olds murder, this whole thing looks worse.
