Director/co-writer Spike Lee adapts Aristophanes' play "Lysistrata" into a timely, music-filled satire set on the violent streets of modern-day Chicago. As the fighting between the Trojan and Spartan gangs escalates to increasingly deadly heights, the beautiful Lysistrata (Teyonah Paris) talks the girlfriends of both gangs' members into not having sex with their men until the war ends. Nick Cannon, Wesley Snipes, Angela Bassett, John Cusack, Jennifer Hudson, and Samuel L. Jackson also star. 93 min.
