Two Can Play That Game is a romantic comedy that centers on one woman's attempts to keep her boyfriend wrapped around her finger. Shantal Smith (Vivica A. Fox) is a succesful black woman whose life revolves around giving women advice on how to keep the man in their lives. She believes she knows everything about a man's actions. Shantal uses her own advice to make sure her own boyfriend, Keith (Morris Chestnut), stays loyal and honest with her. At the same time, Keith's friend, Tony (Anthony Anderson), gives him advice on how to get Shantal to do whatever he wants. When Shantal spots Keith on the dance floor with another woman, she puts her "Ten Day Plan" into action. This plan includes not answering Keith's calls and making him jealous by using another man as her pawn. Tony knows what her plan is all about, so he gives Keith a plan of his own to follow, telling him "Two can play that game."moreless

    Variety Robert Koehler

    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."
