This reprehensible effort is not only an embarrassment to Duke, but to everyone involved ... the offensively homophobic message behind this movie is not the only thing that makes it truly awful.
| Original Score: 2/10
February 19, 2008
A cinematic disaster which attempts to address a pressing social issue, but only fails miserably in the process.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4

Entertaining in a way the filmmakers probably weren't intending.

February 22, 2008
Would be a candidate for the year's most unintentionally funny movie so far - if it weren't also the most homophobic.

The flesh is weak but the spirit is indestructible in Cover, a ham-fisted morality tale.

Director Bill Duke aims for social awareness, but delivers second-rate melodrama instead.

Fo shizzle, if it doesn't attain the well-deserved status of a camp classic, only the straight-to-video aesthetic will be to blame.

Approached as comedy, Cover is a riot.
February 21, 2008
Duke appears to be aiming for a Tyler Perry-style mix of the taboo and the saintly, but his touch is so leaden that one ends up giggling, not weeping.
February 22, 2008
So overwrought that it quickly crosses the line into unintentionally funny and never recovers.

A perfect storm of movie badness.
