"Two Can Play That Game" has some amusing moments, showcases a terrific cast, but falters in real matters of the heart.

Fox and Chestnut, with their fine looks and fine wardrobes, are all dressed up for a party that most guests bailed on in the last days of the old millennium.

Anderson's and Mo'Nique's talents make Two Can Play That Game just amusing and light enough to be worth the trouble despite its often trite familiarity.

Even if [the film] is rather like a sitcom, it is like a really good sitcom. Think "Friends."

Brown has done a fine job with the script and direction in that everyone behaves realistically.

Few recent movies have conceived their central female character more contemptuously -- a fanatic for a lifestyle that appears to have come from the bestselling The Rules and someone who is obviously set up for a satiric fall.

It's got the kind of friskiness that makes you exchange glances with the stranger seated next to you because both of you know how many things it gets right about relationships.

A feature-length movie demands a story, and this one barely has the substance of an anecdote.

Fox gives her all and manages to rise above the material.

It's too bad that Shante and Keith are the movie's designated couple who must get back together, because the movie misses the opportunity to do something different.

It seems quaint rather than edgy, coming across as awfully pallid and obvious despite its ersatz 'cool' surface and its attractive cast.

More often than not ... the characters resort to painfully stereotypical behavior and commentary.

Doesn't anyone get sick of this same old routine?

The movie doesn't just hate women; it despises them.

Moira MacDonald
Seattle Times
September 7, 2001
A pleasant enough entry in that category, if you like your romantic comedies short on love and long on battle-of-the-sexes gamesmanship.

We don't like the characters -- both because they have no redeeming qualities beyond their looks and due to them being one-dimensional creations.

[Brown's] writing is often insightful, and he manages to split the viewpoint between men and women.

In the game of love there are winners and losers, but with this flick, we've all hit the jackpot.
