Two Can Play That Game turns love into a brutal battleground of the sexes. It's not about relationships as much as it is about the "rules" they abide by (or don't abide by).

A Thin Line Between Love And Hate Review


Good
There's a thin line between love and hate, and there's an equally thin line between cute and campy, and Martin Lawrence's comedy version of Fatal Attraction ends up on both sides of the line, and it's hard to tell where the movie's going from one scene to the next. Still, it has enough comedy (courtesy of its sparring leads, with Whitfield going berserk on Lawrence's playa) to make it worth a modest amount of attention. Any movie with a bar called Chocolate City can't be all bad, right?
