* AllStarCast: Samuel L. Jackson, Lynn Whitfield and Diahann Carroll. Also some RetroactiveRecognition with Jurnee Smollett (who went on to be in ''The Great Debaters'' and the new TV series ''The Defenders''), {{Meagan Good}}, and Debbie Morgan (SoapOpera actress who also played the BigBad in a season of ''Series/{{Charmed}}'').



* BillingDisplacement: Lynn Whitfield (Roz) is often listed as a co-star to Samuel L. Jackson, but her character is at most secondary to Eve.



* RealLifeRelative: Eve and Poe are played by real-life siblings Jurnee and Jake Smollet, explaining their onscreen chemistry.

Added DiffLines:

* AmbiguousSituation: The central plot of the movie. [[spoiler: Did Cisely kiss Louis, or did he abuse her?]] Conflicting accounts are given by those involved and the movie never gives a definitive answer either way. In the director's cut, there is an additional character who sees what happens, but he's mute, so no one else will ever know.

* FaintingSeer: Mozelle passes out after having a vision and interpreting it as one of her nieces or nephew getting hit by a car. [[spoiler: Turns out Eve was falling because Louis pushed her out of the way of a gun before getting shot to death, and a train just so happened to be going by at the time]]
