Overview

Watch the special features on Mark Brown's Two Can Play That Game DVD and you quickly learn this battle-of-the-sexes romantic comedy is a film of firsts. Brown not only wrote the script, he also takes a 360 and delves into the female perspective after demonstrating the male side of things in Def Jam's The Player. He also makes his directorial debut, while Vivica A. Fox finally takes on a much-deserved starring role and comedian Mo'Nique makes her first feature-film appearance. Three featurettes -- "Two Can Play That Game: Surviving the Battle of the Sexes," "First Time at Bat," and "Vivica A. Fox Makes Her Move" -- take a closer look at the trials and triumphs of these neophytes while giving interesting and humorous insight into the cast's own views on each other, relationships, and the opposite sex. Also included is a director's commentary, a "Nothing in This World" music video with Keke Wyatt, featuring Avant, filmographies, and trailers for Two Can Play That Game, The Brothers, and Baby Boy. The film can be viewed in either widescreen or full format and offers Dolby Digital 5.1 audio and English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Chinese, Korean, and Thai subtitles. All in all, this is a DVD that shines a light on its stars-in-the-making, while supplementing the movie with additional laughs.

Editorial Reviews

Boston Globe - Jonathan Perry
In addition to the film's two extremely likable stars, the strong supporting cast features a who's who of rising African-American actors.

I've seen this movie at least 3 times on cable and I always enjoy it. It will lift your spirits with its playful plot line and appealing characters. It is light and entertaining, not heavy and deep; but not every movie has to have ''a message''... some can just make you HAPPY.

I loved this movie. There are moments of saddness, romance, etc. This also goes to proves that sometimes you just can't control life!!! Add me to your msn... daddys_girl2007@hotmail.com or yahoo......................smoochie1989@yahoo.com

This movie is a ''Yack Fest.'' Just a bunch of good looking actors talking loud and saying nothing. Supposedly grown, college-educated (phew!), intelligent African Americans who can't seem to get along with each other. Vivica looks good and acts even better. Morris Chestnutt just looks good -- PERIOD!! Perhaps he should do runway modeling for men, something where he doesn't have to be mistaken for an actor. Bottom line: to really enjoy this good-looking but PLOT-LESS movie, simply turn the volume down to zero and gaze at the characters. Believe me, it's alot less annoying.

The movie was well put together and the actors were great from the narrative styles of Vivca A. Fox to the comic relief of Anthony Anderson. BUT........... The main reason I went to see the movie was for one reason only - Morris Chestnutt. This man is beautiful. He is a great actor that goes unrecognized most of the time. There is one thing that we can always expect from him besides an excellent performance - a great entrance into the movie.

This movie is exactly what a movie is supposed to be - entertaining. It is funny, makes some excellent points, and has a well-rounded representation of all types of black people. I like it because it was a fun movie. It is not supposed to be intellectually stimulating, nor is it meant to send this profound message on the meaning of life. I like it because it stays real and it shows how misinformed and cluless people can be even when they think they are an authority on things. Let me make a correctin of the initial review though. Shante does NOT catch Keith out with Connie, thus sending her to the ten day rule regiment. The woman was someone from work. Like Connie said, ''Get it together!'' (Just kidding)
