"I Love Your Smile" is a song
recorded by R&B singer Shanice and released
in 1991 as the first single from her album Inner Child. The song features
saxophonist Branford Marsalis. It met success in many countries, including
U.S., where it reached #2 on the Billboard Hot
100 and number one on the Billboard R&B charts. To
date, it is her best known and most successful hit. Talib Kweli referenced the song in his single "Hot Thing".
The song features a saxophone solo by Branford
Marsalis. The radio and video version of the song edits out the
rap bridge from the album version. Janet Jackson and René Elizondo can be heard
laughing at the end of the song. The track was crafted by producer Louis Biancaniello and the vocals were captured by producer Narada Michael Walden.
In the music video, Shanice is in a
studio having several pictures taken by a photographer. One scene shows her in
a leather jacket, another has her sitting in a chair in front of a microphone
stand, and another has her dancing with several backup dancers. In the middle
of the video, Shanice walks through the park and the photographer hides behind
a tree while he takes more pictures of her. At the end, Shanice offers to take
a picture of a family, and then takes a picture of the photographer.

Worthington is an escaped convict attempting to prove his innocence in the most
elaborate way possible: He climbs out onto a hotel ledge and creates a suicide
spectacle/diversion that allows his brother (Jamie Bell) to steal a diamond
from an iniquitous real estate baron played with a perpetual scowl by Ed
Harris. It's all ostensibly part of a master plan, as is his requesting
Elizabeth Banks' beleaguered negotiator.
What's Good About the Movie:
Well I went to see this movie because there wasn't anything else I wanted to see and I am glad I did. After pushing this one aside, I came away thinking it was kinda worth a look. The way the movie progressed and kept you on the end of your seat @ times REALLY worked for me and the pay off @ the end made the bad things about the movie so, so.
What's Bad About the Movie:
There were some plot holes that left me feeling like huh? Sam's character was told that his father was sick by his former police partner and he died a scene of two later and this is when his escape plan came into play. What I found interesting about this is scene is that his former partner is a police officer so he should know if Sam's father ACTUALLY died. And the other scene that bugs me is the fact that in his escape, his vehicle was hit by a train and Sam came through that without a scratch.
Overall Grade: C-
