August 12, 2009
A thin line? Not in this case.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
August 12, 2009
Tiresome stuff, bearable only if you can overlook the questionable premise and find something to like in Lawrence's Eddie Murphy-lite turn.
March 26, 2009
Sluggishly paced and too seldom funny...
February 9, 2006
The script lacks wit and depth, while Lawrence's direction is meandering and undramatic, full of showy, over-elaborate camera movements.
January 12, 2004
A ponderous vanity project that is unfunny and, worst of all, just plain boring.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
May 20, 2003
Too serious to be a comedy, too flippant to be a thriller, it often feels like a backhanded act of penance for the misogynist humor in the star's comedy act.
June 18, 2002
[Lawrence is] a charming, gifted comic with a killer smile, but he's way out of his depth in this Fatal Attraction knockoff, which he also co-wrote and stars in.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4

In showing the importance of monogamy, the film is profound enough that it could lead couples to reevaluate themselves; women will look at their new men a bit more quizzically, and men will be less likely to say "I love you" unless they mean it.
May 28, 2002
Any movie with a bar called Chocolate City can't be all bad, right?
| Original Score: 3/5
January 1, 2000
The screenplay is credited to four writers, and its unevenness argues that none of them were on the same wavelength.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
January 1, 2000
Once it gets going, A Thin Line is moderately entertaining, but, oh my, that first hour...
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10
January 1, 2000
Martin Lawrence bites off a bit more than he can chew with his four roles in this haphazard comedy. As a result, nothing seems quite focused.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
January 1, 2000
Sexual stereotyping provides the grist for much of Martin Lawrence's humor and, for the most part, it's on target.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
January 1, 2000
Lawrence the director should have pulled the reigns in on Lawrence the star, as his constant mugging is both out of character and ridiculously exaggerated.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
January 1, 2000
A Thin Line Between Love and Hate takes its name from the Persuaders 1971 hit that has been re-recorded by the Pretenders, Annie Lennox and H-Town. You could have just as much fun simply playing one of them and skipping the movie.

[Lawrence] doesn't seem to know that his protagonist is a deceptive, frivolous, fast-talking and surprisingly stupid womanizer.
