Writer-director Spike Lee (Do the Right Thing) confronts the controversy over inner city gun violence by re-staging Aristophanes' play Lysistrata (about a group of wives and consorts who refuse sexual favors until the menfolk lay down their arms) in modern-day Chicago. Nick Cannon, Wesley Snipes, Angela Bassett and Samuel L. Jackson are among the ensemble cast of this heavily stylized social dramedy. 118 minutes R.
