Vivica A. Fox
Jason Winston George
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.
