Overview

Love really is a battlefield in this war of the sexes comedy that marks the directorial debut of Def Jam's How to Be a Player 1997 screenwriter Mark Brown. Vivica A. Fox stars as Shante, a knowledgeable veteran of the dating game who thinks she's found the perfect mate in the handsome Keith Morris Chestnut. When Keith is spotted stepping out with Shante's arch-rival Conny Gabrielle Union, the spurned lover institutes what she labels the "ten-day plan," an all-out assault on Keith designed to make him come crawling back to her. Shante's scheme includes sexy lingerie, home cooking, aloofness, and other tactics intended to make Keith regret his errant ways, but Keith is receiving contradictory advice from his allegedly worldly wise buddy Tony Anthony Anderson. Two Can Play That Game is produced by Doug McHenry, director of Jason's Lyric 1994 and Kingdom Come 2001.

    We all know who the real star of the movie is - MORRIS CHESTNUTT

    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.

    Sheer Entertainment!

    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)

    Fun, Enjoyable Light Movie

    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.

    To enjoy this movie, turn the volume down to zero!

    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.
