Plot Summary

Eva has been in charge of her younger sisters ever since their parents died, many years ago. Eva's uncanny ability to interfere in her sisters' affairs has not endeared her to their spouses and partners. The men would like to close out and divide up the family trust fund that Eva oversees. So they concoct a simple plan: compensate cash strapped ladies' man Ray Adams (LL Cool J) to romance and distract Eva from her familial duties. Sparks fly between Ray and Eva ... but the plan goes awry.

    A welcome respite from verbal nastiness and sexual cynicism. It's nice to see characters who enjoy falling in love, even if it's to a schmaltzy light-soul score. show more

    Union is a brilliant spitfire, though one wishes the script had been run past an English major. But the movie's flaws are smoothed over by a rousing soundtrack, some excellent comic performances and the star-making moves of LL Cool J. show more
