WHAT'S IT ABOUT?
Shante Smith is back as a relationship expert who helps women get the upper hand.
IS IT A GOOD MOVIE?
Black people acting sassy. That's something you've never seen before. Good thing we have THREE CAN PLAY THAT GAME to rectify the problem. It's the much-awaited sequel to TWO CAN PLAY THAT GAME, answering all those burning questions I'm sure you had left over from the last go-around. They've gone ahead and stripped away most of the original, more recognizable cast members, replacing them with actors you've never heard of, and after seeing for five minutes, you'll pray you never have to again. Donít worry though, the obviously desperate for work Vivica A. Fox is still here, offering more sass in one snap of her fingers than a whole gospel church full of Mo'Nique's shouting out, "Heeey girlfriend!"

The level of incompetence found in THREE CAN PLAY THAT GAME is almost unparalleled, even going as far as to screw up simple things like framing and lighting. The acting is ridiculously over-the-top, and the attempts at humor cringe-worthy. The screenwriting is ridiculously poor, constantly having Fox's character talk (and often, shout) directly to the camera and present dating advice. It feels better suited for one of those cheesy public access commercials you'd see at 3:00 in the morning.

The film hardly has a plot, with the whole focus being on two unsympathetic lovers playing really stupid mind games with each other. It reminded me in a way of HITCH, in that it tries to provide some sort of intellectual analysis of people's actions/reactions in the dating world. Only difference is, HITCH actually handled the concept well, whereas THREE CAN PLAY THAT GAME appears to have been written by a high school dropout who picked up a copy of "How to Trick Somebody Into Loving You"* at the library.

*Sorry, I don't think that's a real book. Best of luck though.

Deleted Scenes round out the disc.
