Ernie Hudson is in tune with everyone in this film; he brings dignity to almost everything he acts in -- did you see him in "Congo" -- "I'm your great white leader, escept I'm black" favorite line. Jake is a story about a street guy who befriends an English guy and the question of ethics comes around. Lots of characters run though it. Would rate this a mild R.

Jake (Ernie Hudson) calls Cameron `Birdman' because he sleeps in trees. Cameron (Graeme Malcolm) calls Jake `Drummer man' because he beats on bongos for tips. Cameron is a man with lots of questions. Jake is a man with answers... well, not all of the time. They are two homeless men who become friends.

Jake had been in the foster care system - lived with ten families in eight years. For him life on the streets is freedom; a choice he made. He didn't have a roof over his head and that was okay with him. He referred to New York City as his house and he's been homeless for years. His new friend, Cameron, hasn't been on the streets long so Jake teaches him how to survive. A tragic incident occurs and Cameron is motivated to take a stand so the homeless can be recognized. But does he really care?

Lou Rawls, Lou Myers, Phyllis Diller, Robin Givens, Doug E. Doug and Debbie Allen have parts in the movie. It was nice to see all of them; however, I bought it because of Debbie Allen. I like her, but I didn't care for this movie, and as I watched it I was grateful that I only paid around $8 for it during the Black Friday sale.

It would have been a much better movie, for me, if I didn't have to listen to vulgar language. There was way too much of it for my taste. I'm guessing the parts involving dogs was supposed to be funny but it was disgusting. And there was other content that I was not interested in watching, and I didn't; I fast-forwarded. I'm sure there are some who won't mind the content I disliked, so I plan to donate my DVD to the library.

Everything's Jake educates, and I mean it is very honest about the choices the homeless must make on a daily basis - I did not need to know all that it revealed. In the product details NOT RATED should be changed to RATED R.

A great film. Great cast, touching story. Lovingly directed. A real heart-string-tugger. My wife adored it.

The Jake of this story is a homeless man living in New York. Jake is not looking for something better and seems to be content with his place in society. Without an actual roof over his head, Jake sees NYC as belonging to him; he is a survivor and has a natural ability to look at the day to day challenges of street living as his status quo. His upbeat take on life and his humor affect many of his acquaintances such as a librarian he's taken a liking to. Jake meets a fellow homeless man and becomes his mentor, teaching him the ropes of street living but finds this "friend" may have ulterior motives.
Good solid movie - good solid acting. Worth your time and money.....bg
