Why and How did this film make it out the studio?
13 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

OK, Fair Game is billed as a romantic comedy. If I go into all the details I'll vomit up my dinner. This awful "romantic comedy" is about two coworkers, Michael and Stacey,(Michael Whaley and Gina Torres respectively), who find themselves temporarily living together after Michael's landlady kicks him out of his apartment temporarily for repairs. The two discover they have feelings for each other which is hampered by the malignant presence of the company CEO, Marcus (Christopher B. Duncan)who has plans of making Stacey his right hand corporate piece of booty by luring her with the promise of a job promotion.

I'll stop here with the plot as my head hurts recalling the storyline which is too predictable and unimaginably awful. You get the feeling watching this poor quality film (not even deserving of the title "ghetto cinema") that some of the actors: Kellita smith, Terri Vaughn, Gina Torres, must have owed him (director and writer Michael Whaley) a favor from long ago...ouch , or why would they agree to offer their talent to such a poorly filmed piece of celluloid????? The storyline with potential concerning character E (Mark Christopher Lawrence)and his problem with rejection in relationships as he hesitantly embarks upon a new love interest could have been explored more.

This film seems too much like a freshman effort as the plot is severely disjointed and the little side stories with the other characters take away from the already weak stride of the fragile main storyline. This script could have been better written and directed...i simply choose to believe Whaley can and will do better work and that maybe, just maybe this was a one film deal with UrbanWorks and the last that simply had to be made and maybe...all involved knew going in this was going to be an awful awful film.
