"A Thin Line Between Love and Hate" stars Martin Lawrence, Lynn Whitfield, Regina King, Bobby Brown and Della Reese. This is easily one of my favorite movies; I often watch it when I'm feeling depressed because it eases my mood and reminds me that even though we may face hard times, someone is always going through something worse than you.
The movie is a about a player (womanizer) named Darnell who is confident that he can get any woman he wants. He was able to get women easily, because he was charming and co-owner of a hot club in town, so he was looking for a challenge. He found that challenge in Brandy Webb. Brandy is not your average female. She is high maintenance and rich. She does not deal with men like Darnell, for they are mid-class players. Darnell wants Brandy badly and goes through a lot to get her. While he is chasing Brandy, though, his old flame Mia is back in town from the Army. Darnell still has feelings for, but mind you, he is still chasing Brandy, and Mia is dating a well to do man. Darnell finally is able to get a date with Brandy, and after spending lots of time with her, he accomplishes his goal and "hits it". After he hits it, he loses interest in Brandy and pursues Mia. However, Brandy is not going to let Darnell go that easily. She does all she can to get revenge on Darnell. The whole while Darnell's mother is warning him about playing women, but he always brushes her off. In the end, Darnell CERTAINLY learns a lesson.
I absolutely love this movie. The comedic performance is wonderful. I love the plot. I have never seen a black movie with this type of plot, so it was different. Martin Lawrence showed innovation in creating this movie. It is also neat that he named this movie after the song entitled "A Thin Line Between Love and Hate". The song and movie are about the same subject: "The sweetest woman in the world can be the meanest woman in the world, if you make her that way". This is a line from the song.
I highly recommend this movie to anyone looking for a laugh and some drama.
