Bob Thornton is a second-generation prison warden, the son of
the supremely-racist Peter Boyle and father of dutifully-confused
heir-apparent Heath Ledger. He and his son share a love of detachment
and whores until Ledger takes his own life shortly after participating
in the execution of Sean Combs, who just so happens to be the
criminal ex-husband of Halle Berry. As chance would have it, Berry
and Thornton are united, without either of them knowing the "real"
connection, over the tragic loss of her son. The whole mess soon
comes to light, but Thornton and Berry both change enough through
their experiences together that their love can survive. Morals
and a couple of engaging sex scenes ensue.

Sure, this movie has Amber Rules as the hooker with a heart of
gold (and sacks of saline), but the crowning achievement in this
flick occurs when Berry and Billy Bob set to banging one another
for what seems to be an eternity. It's hot, and Halle flashes
enough T&A to keep Mr. Skin happy for a long, long while!
to the nudity involved, Vanessa L. Williams and Angela Bassett
both passed on the role that would eventually win Berry the Best
Actress Oscar. Oops!
