Movie Info

A twenty-seven year old professional basketball player about to sign a lucrative endorsement contract that will set him up for life sees his entire future begin to crumble by the greed of a woman he swears never to have met in a revealing study of the ultra-materialistic "playa" culture starring Allen Payne, Anthony "Treach" Criss, and Elise Neal. Cedrick Tinsley (Payne) has it all: a successful career on the court, a beautiful fiancée he is preparing to propose to, and enough cash to live life in style. As Cedric prepares to enter into an endorsement contract that could propel his career to the next level, a woman who claims to bear his child emerges from the woodwork intending to sue him for paternity. The only problem is that Cedric claims never to have even met the litigious woman currently threatening to bleed him dry. Now determined to keep his career on track and allow let the "playas" that be to drag him down, Cedric prepares to fight for his future in a world where money equals power and everyone is just trying to make a buck.

Audience Reviews for Playas Ball


3.5/10. I found the score so irritating it was hard to focus on the movie. The acting is not very good, but Chelsi Smith does well. The direction is very amateurish and unfocused. Low budget and it looks it.

This was a pretty good movie. It got better towards the end...there were parts that really didn't need to be in the film, like when his (Cedric) nephew "August" died. Also, "August's mom" working out at the park while he was playing (which led to him being hit by a car). The movie was better towards the end during the trial and at the "Playas Ball" party. "There's gonna be money, honey & playboy bunnies @ this party!...(Which one are you)? I'm the bunny that's fixin to jump over this counter to whoop yo a*s!" LOL.. Cedric found out that his (bisexual) girlfriend (whom he was going to propose to) froze his sperm during sex & gave it to her friend, Tanya to impregnated herself & get his money (the reason for being in court). He found out because every room was being recorded @ the party & his girlfriend & Tanya started arguing about it. Cedric's girlfriend and Tanya were put in jail, Cedric got Joshua (the baby Tanya had), then Cedric finally realized who he really loved...Summer (his publicist/friend who had been by his side since they were kids).

A Low budget flick that wasn't too bad at all. A lesson is definitely learned in this drama. Worth seeing.
