Observable, fast-talking party man Darnell Wright (Martin Lawrence), gets his punishment when one of his conquests takes it personally and comes back for revenge in this "Fatal Attraction" themed comic thriller.

"A Thin Line Between Love and Hate" was released in April 1996 and went on to gross over $30 million at the box office against a budget of $8 million. The film was shot on location entirely in the city of Los Angeles, California from June 5 until August 11, 1995.

Yes, somehow this made money. Quite a bit of money, really. How much of that ended up in Martin Lawrence's pockets, I don't know, but I can't believe how wildly popular this was. The humor is terrible, the language is crude, and it is not particularly memorable, even hours after watching it. I wonder if it took a beating on home video, because I saw it paired with "Love Jones", an actually good movie.
