Movie Info

When a successful young attorney becomes involved in the deteriorating marriage of a longtime friend, the repercussions of his actions could spell disaster for all involved in this tense martial thriller from director Reggie Gaskins. Dontae McNeil loves his wife Diane deeply and strives to be the best husband he can, but Diane simply isn't happy in the marriage. Russell Jenkins is a powerful defense attorney with a beautiful wife and a sprawling home. An old friend of Diane's, Russell has everything she has ever wanted in life. When Diane comes seeking Russell's advice on how to handle her marital problems and the pair grows increasingly close, Dante soon begins to suspect that Diane and Russell may be having an affair. Upon confronting Diane, Dante's erratic behavior causes his frightened wife to seek a restraining order against her husband. Infuriated that the woman he loves so deeply could take such drastic measures, Dante becomes consumed by his anger. When Diane makes the fatal mistake of asking Russell to discuss the matter with the increasingly irrational Dante, the fury of being confronted by the very man he suspects his wife of sleeping with drives Dante over the edge of sanity.more

Audience Reviews for Restraining Order

Whoa!! Pretty good movie. After all that talk about Diane, played by Robin Givens, and Russ, her best friend, sleeping together... I thought the ending was going to end up like the typical cheating spouse, psycho killing scene from her husband finding out, but that didn't happen (yet)... to find out.. Russ wasn't even with Diane... Diane, though still a cheat, was sleeping with yet another man... "I was supposed to be happy!!", she said... it didn't seem to end that way though. Oh well.. you shouldn't rush into marriage because of a pregnancy anyway.

MEC reviews

5.5/10. The cheesy production hurts, but I liked the film in an odd sort of way. Not enough to recommend it though. Bad score, the acting is not that good. The story was decent though. It could have been really good if more professionally done.
