  • Summary: A kindly, church-going family woman is pushed to her limits as she tries to hold her family together in the face of scandal. She discovers that her husband has led a double life and possibly introduced a deadly disease into their relationship. But is this crisis enough to drive her to murder?

  1. The sledgehammer message is clear: Best friends can help when you need a McMansion, but only God can help when your husband needs a man.

    This is a weirdly schizophrenic movie, one that's light on the murder mystery and heavy on the sermonizing.
  3. 38
    So overwrought that it quickly crosses the line into unintentionally funny and never recovers.
  4. While this actor-filmmaker has delivered such worthy films as "A Rage in Harlem" and "Deep Cover" in the past, this misbegotten effort would be instantly forgettable if not for its potential as future camp classic.
  5. 25
    Featuring eyeball-rolling performances by Vivica A. Fox, Patti LaBelle, Clifton Davis and the singularly named Leon, Cover would be a candidate for the year's most unintentionally funny movie so far - if it weren't also the most homophobic.
