Love Trap

I'd have chewed my own leg off to escape from this indie romance by Frank Goodin II, an admirer of Spike Lee who replicates the archness of Lee's early films but lacks his saving anger and wit. Shot in Jacksonville, Florida, the movie centers on a proud black man (Julius Golden) and a proud black woman (Arlicia Love) whose proud black love is derailed by the machinations of her slutty girlfriend (Jamica Sherman). A limp FM-soul score ticktocks endlessly in the background, heedless of the story's tone, and the abundant voice-over is often laughably pompous. 105 min.
