5.0 out of 5 stars A Reality check 15 Oct 2006
By Teterie
Format:VHS Tape
I saw this at the movies when it came out all those years ago, and found it so profound that it's memory still lingers.

Although I did not know it at the time, I had found my 'Jason' and to this day he calls me 'Lyric'. MEN! Watch it if you have not seen it yet, with 'that special person' whom you want to keep; trust me, you'll score points!!

By Mr O.
Format:VHS Tape
This film is a masterpiece, the story unravels its self as you go along. After the death of his Jason’s father the family went into a break up with Jason as the good son in his mother’s eyes but his younger brother holds him responsible for his fatherless childhood, leaving jason a choice between family or love. This film will have you watching throughout it deserves it’s my high rating.
