I felt that the plot for Player's Club just barely held water. The second to last scene was a joke. A wheel chaired gangster with a tommy gun and a rocket launcher in the deep south was too much for me. The last scene with the beat up cousin was too much. How do you go job hunting days after being attacked. Even Al Bundy doesn't want a beat down ex-stripper pushing his wares.
However as an Ice Cube fan and a fan of local "players clubs", the movie wasn't a total waste. It was the supporting characters that deserve credit for carrying this movie. All and all it's worth renting.
