Movie Info

A man who's devoted his life to running around on his woman finally meets his match in this comedy. Dray Jackson (Bill Bellamy) is a ladies' man par excellence, who never lets the fact that he has a girlfriend, Lisa (Lark Voorhies), get in the way of making time with as many other women as possible. As he spends a typical day going from house to house "visiting" a number of beautiful females, Dray fills his friends David (Pierre Edwards), Kilo (Jermaine Hopkins), and Spootie (A.J. Johnson) in on

I watched the whole movie and am still not a "player." Therefore the film is a failure. Plus it's also pretty awful.

Riddled with misogyny, glorifying slovenliness and brutish behavior, Def Jam's How to Be a Player doesn't even begin to come up with the nasty laughs of a Booty Call or Sprung.
