Storyline

In Harlem, Martin Blaze, a writer for Vibe, thinks he's a loser since his fiancée cheated on him. The evening after his father's funeral, he meets the lovely Paula, runs into her the next day, but is sure she'll never look twice at him. His older brother Junnie offers to coach him on how to be a player, promising Martin that within two weeks, she'll be his. The lessons commence, and Martin succeeds in meeting women and getting their phone numbers. But he's neglecting his work, carping at his mom, and behaving badly toward his loyal friend Bobbi. Meanwhile, Junnie's life isn't going well either as money problems mount. Can Martin regain his better self - and not lose Paula? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Decent yet really drags near the end...
13 April 2003 | by champion-oneSee all my reviews

This really isn't a bad movie, but it loses a lot of momentum and drags towards the end. It's almost the romantic comedy equivalent of "Barbershop" without any sort of real climax. However, I did like the ending.

There really aren't a lot of laughs per se, but what's there is genuine and the characters are likeable. I rented it and didn't regret it.
