What the hell?
21 December 2001 | by (Woodbridge,VA) – See all my reviews

Da Game of Life has to be one of the worst films ever made. Snoop Dogg who's a good actor wasted his talents in this bland Carlito's Way rip off. The cinematography is almost as nonexisent as the scirpt this film would be worse to watch then finding out your girl is cheating. Don't see this film please.
