Storyline

Shanté Smith has moved to Atlanta where she's the Love Doctor, helping women get their men to the altar. Tiffany calls her after she catches her boyfriend, Byron, in a clinch with his boss, Carla, just after he wins a competition similar to "The Apprentice." Shanté initiates a five-step program for Tiffany while Byron seeks advice from his best friend, Gizzard. The five steps include her meeting his family and her offering and withholding sex; Byron and Gizzard respond with their own strategies. Then, Bryon consults Shanté: has the Love Doctor switched sides? And, what happens if Byron finds out that Tiffany's playing games? Can true love run without a play book?

Vivica you are very naughty))
14 May 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

first 10 minutes are kind of boring; the plot is all over the place(i was afraid that might become something about a "reality" show, at which point i would have quit watching). but glad my fears were proved wrong))) Jazsmin Lewis and Jason Winston George are the couple. he gets "busted" (not of his fault ) of being caught with another woman. to any male that follows is obviously about CONTROL, and lots of ultra-feminists clichés follow.....OK why i do actually like this feature then? first of all,Vivica A. Fox as "her" therapist and Terrance L. Campbell as "his" best friend are awesome to watch having a "proxy" war by means of the couple. how far it gets i will not tell you here, but is FUN. secondly all those ultra-feminists issues goes to such extremes that they become clearly something to be ignored or laughed at hard with an open mouth.(more like teasing your girlfriend if watch this as a couple and her tease you back. as a matter of fact all vivica a.fox comedies are directed towards spicing up the bedroom atmosphere, especially if the viewers are having strong aggressive or passive-aggressive personalities). thirdly Vivica A.-Fox manages to take the meaning on "b...h" to higher levels.there are so many moments in the movie that all a guy could think as a male is if such a girlfriend is worth to have had in the first place( it becomes obvious that this is all about a power play about who will be the dominant "specie" in the relationship). more like those "girlfriends" that WANT you to make a step "wrong" so they can get the "moral" high ground. if this would have been a drama i would outright LOATH the whole clichés about men seen simply as "animals" that need to be "domesticated" LOL. but because it is a comedy , it is FUN to see all this aspects and yes i am sure anyone can relate to ANY OF THE 4 MAIN CHARACTERS. this should be popular with high school teenagers as well.

this has entertainment value as long as not taking it personal or worse, literally.if know anyone having a therapist "a la" Vivica A. Fox then PREY for them regardless of sex, hehehehe; i guess she likes to stay true to her name))))i give it a 7 for mood well defined eventually and good acting all around. 3 points taken for some clichés and ultra-feminist exclusive aspects, that even if done with style, they remain as such.

err..."sls5s"..."ust promotes playing games and all the stupid stereotypes for African-Americans"; what exactly is that supposed to mean!?
