Release Date: August 25, 2006 (USA) | Length: 121 min | Genre: Crime, Drama, Musical, Romance | MPAA Rating: Rated R for violence, sexuality, nudity and language.

Note: I think Edgar Godineaux is the same dancer as Edgar Godineaux Jr. from A Rage in Harlem. IMDB has them listed as different people. I need to identify Charlie Lucas (dead heist) – I don’t think its the same person Avelyman has listed.
