Hilarious, witty, sexy, suspenseful, and totally beautiful!
15 August 2001 | by (Vienna, Virginia, USA) – See all my reviews

In my opinion, A THIN LINE BETWEEN LOVE AND HATE is a hilarious, witty, sexy, suspenseful, and totally beautiful movie. It is also one of the best Martin Lawrence films I have ever seen. I thought that Martin (Lawrence) and Lynn (Whitfield) lit up the screen like magic! One of my favorite quotes of this movie is, "You put your hands on the wrong woman." That REALLY made me feel good and smile. But the part that REALLY made me feel good and smile was when Brandi (Lynn Whitfield) got even with Darnell (Martin Lawrence) at her home towards the end. Also, I thought that Erica (Malinda Williams) looked VERY beautiful in her prom dress -- Especially with the way she had her hair done. That sure brings back memories for me. In conclusion, to anyone who's a fan of Martin Lawrence, I recommend this movie. You're in for a LOT of laughs and thrills, so, go out there, rent it or buy it, kick back with a friend, and watch it.
