Ugh, junk
Man, I've seen some bad movies with attemps at pretensions, but this one takes the cake. The premise is this: white wife attempts to avenge her black husband who was shot by a white cop after they're caugh getting jiggly with it in their car, parked under a bridge, in the dead of night. What's worst, when it looks like the cop is racist and obviously begins harassing them for no other reason than it's a white woman with a black man, the couple starts getting indignant and openly refuses the cop's most basic commands.

Look, I'm a minority, and I've been in more than one traffic stops, and I DO EVERYTHING the cops tell me, because I know they'll throw my ass in jail just for messing with them. But our power couple here (she's an exec and he's a professor) thinks they're special -- actually, the screenplay treats them as special (I don't know, maybe because they're a mixed couple? Who knows.) and flat out starts messing with an obviously racist cop. The husband gets shot. The wife goes out for vengeance. Whatever.

Good premise, but terrible execution. Screenplay is full of soap box speeches and moments. Go see SLAM or JUNGLE FEVER if you want actual portrayals of white-black relationships. This one is just beyond comprehension.
