A good-time girl, Nola Darling (Tracy Camila Johns), attempts to decide between her three steady men: caring Jamie (Tommy Redmond Hicks), self-obsessed model Greer (John Canada Terrell) and nutty bicycle messenger Mars (Spike Lee). Each makes his pitch to girl and audience alike before all three come face to face over Nola's dinner table at Thanksgiving. This is director Spike Lee's first feature film.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny and Intelligent 3 Sep 2008
By Skip
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is Spike Lee's first feature film and it is excellent. The production is shoe-string cheap, but the homemade feel to it works perfectly with the story he wants to tell. That story is about Nola, who is being sought after by three very different men and one woman, each of whom wants Nola as their possession. The style is mock-documentary, in a sense. Characters often turn and address the camera and seem to be recalling events and experiences. Other times, the action is in the present and the style is simply a shot scene. The film revolves largely around the rivalry between the three men and Nola's increasingly strenuous efforts not to become caged. The rivalry between the men and the woman is not as fully developed, except between one of the men and the woman. It's all very good, wildly funny at times (Spike Lee plays one of the three men and he has a terrific comic ability), and thoughtful. There are sex scenes and one scene that even the film describes as a rape. Not nice, and I think it could have been intimated, rather than portrayed. However, it is not gratuitous. It is important to see it as an act that one specific character commits.

5.0 out of 5 stars A gift 21 Feb 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Still, for me, Spike Lee's best film. A joy - humerous and with a message that is as relevant today as when it was made.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic 3 Mar 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
What can one say this is Spike Lee at his best and top form as a first film. I am so glad to add this to my small collection of films I'd like to have and hadn't seen for years.
