Product Description

Amazon.ca

At the heart of this dynamic film is the love of a man for a woman, a mother for a son, and a brother for a brother. Rarely is one man's struggle for inner peace so poignantly displayed as in this engrossingly sexy and unflinchingly violent love story. Lyric is the young woman who rekindles the dreams of a man tormented by a father's alcoholic violence now perpetuated by an unstable brother. Allen Payne and Jada Pinkett make for one of the screen's most memorable duos in the title roles. Each brings emotional intensity paired with powerful sexuality to their roles. Director Doug McHenry speaks to the 1990s by deftly balancing the story's heightened drama with just enough hope to give it impact. --Rochelle O'Gorman

4.0 out of 5 stars good film Oct. 2 2004
By bill
Format:VHS Tape
I think that this movie was very good because it is very realistic as far as the situaions of life in the ghetto,love,and the struggles of life. It's not like most of these trunped up "hood movies" that seem to always glorify ghetto life instead of potraying it as it is.I think that it's not an innapropriate movie for young people in their pre teen and early teen years because the movie potrays issues that effect alot of kids these days in real life. But overall it's a must see.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love IS courage. Sing Jason's Lyric! June 17 2004
Format:DVD
Jason's Lyric is a true love story. In the midst of so much blight this film shows you that you don't need to have a Monster's Ball to know that love is courage and that there is hope in the bleakest of situations.
Allen Payne and Jada Pinkett give the best performances of their careers in this story of a man coming to terms with his troubled past while trying to help his brother (Bookeem Woodbine) who has just got out of prison. One day at work he finds his true love Lyric (Jada Pinkett) who wants to help him achieve his dream of a better life. He gets several chances, but is forced to turn them down because of his obligation to his brother. In a climatic conflict with his brother, Jason stops being his brother's keeper and resolves his personal issues. Jason achieves his dream and moves on with Lyric.
The script is well written; characters are well defined and have more dimensions than shown on the surface. The choices they make in their to change lives feel natural and not forced. Allen Payne makes you feel Jason's pain while Jada Pinkett shows us Lyric's love and compassion. Both Payne and Pinkett deserve better than what Hollywood has offered them currently, when given quality material they shine. Bokeem Woodbine makes you feel sorry for Jason's brother; you hate what he does, not him. Other noteworthy performances include Suzanne Douglas and Forrest Whitaker as Jason's Parents, and the two child actors who play young Jason and his brother. The production values are top notch on this film; I don't know why critics roasted this movie. It is very well done and should have been nominated for some Oscars.
This film has quite a few steamy love scenes; this film is not for kids. However, adults will find this to be a powerful and moving story full of hope character and courage.

5.0 out of 5 stars Timeless masterpiece!! Sept. 24 2001
Format:DVD
This has to be the most beautiful and highly underrated movies of all time. I fell in love with this movie back in 1995, after I missed seeing it at the movies. Payne {Jason} and {Pinkett} Lyric portray lovers torn between Payne's undying love and devotion to his brother. The passion between them is undeniable and their love scenes are incredibly HOT!! Payne's ne're-do-well brother, Joshua {Woodbine} plays the hard-headed prison thug who struggles to stay on the right path. Payne is also plagued by nighmares he suffers as a result of a struggle between his parents that ended up in tragedy. In effort to get away from all the drama and the nonsense, he and Lyric plan to just go far away and leave everyone -and everything- behind. Everytime I watch this movie, I cry. Oscar-worthy performances by Pinkett, Payne, Woodbine, and Whitaker. Excellent movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best film's I have ever seen Dec 2 2001
Format:DVD
Jason's Lyric is one of the only movies to have realistic romance and passion there are very few films that have that. I feel this is one of the best romances ever made. Allen Payne performance is amazing so is Jada Pinkett Smith (...) the whole cast is great I loved this movie. But its a film for adults only they cut some scenes out of the movie to avoid a NC-17 rating. But even with the scenes they cut it still should have got the NC-17 rating. The love scenes in the movie are still very graphic. I have seen NC-17 rated movies and the sex in those films are not even close to the sex in the R rated Jason's Lyric. So I don't know what the Mpaa is doing but there giving the wrong movie NC-17 and giveing the ones that should an R rating. But anyway this is a amazing film and is for adults only.(...)

5.0 out of 5 stars A TRUE LOVE STORY July 7 2004
Format:DVD
I saw this movie ten years ago when I was 13 and ten years later, I still love it. But now that I'm older, I can appreciate the story line even more. Jason is a troubled man haunted by his past that he continues to have nightmares. Due to his past, he feels obligated to help his brother who nothing but a criminal and content to stay one and his mother to help her out with his brother. But when he meets Lyric, a woman full of passion, sympathy and dreams, he realizes that he has to let the past go. But his brother continues to come between Lyric and himself until the end when he has to make the ultimate decision: to be with the woman he loves or to be with the brother he loves.

5.0 out of 5 stars BEYOND GREEEEEEEEAT!!! March 31 2001
Format:VHS Tape
This movie was an excellent beyond great love story. The movie was so endearing and touching that words can't even express how good it was. This movie is like one of those old African-American back in the day GHetto movies. I love movies like these. Plus JADA PINKETT is my most favorite Actress I love her to death Will Smith is a lucky man to have a woman with so much devotion and love. Jada's rolls in her movies have spunk and so much liveliness and that's what I love about her.I own this great classic movie on VHS and so can you. PEACE

3.0 out of 5 stars It Gets 3 Stars, and for a GOOD Reason.
This film is a bland and servicable love story set in Texas. But it gets three stars for ONE good reason: Allen Payne's and Jada Pinkett Smith's TREMENDOUS "performance"... Read more
