    Synopsis


    A Thin Line Between Love and Hate
    Writer-director Martin Lawrence billed this comic drama as his own version of the film Fatal Attraction (1987). Lawrence stars as Darnell, a hopeless male chauvinist. Darnell is a crude-but-smooth talker and lady's man who doesn't take no for an answer. He works for a nightclub called Chocolate City and aspires to be its owner. He trades VIP privileges at the club for favors from women. Though he is an expert at conning women, he sometimes worries about what his childhood sweetheart Mia (Regina King), who is engaged to marry him, thinks of his adventures. When the classy, elegant Brandi (Lynn Whitfield) steps out of a limousine to enter the club, Darnell feels that he's met his ultimate prize. She rejects his come-ons, which only fuels his appetite. He pursues her, showing up with flowers at her real estate office. He finally wins over Brandi, but she becomes obsessed with him, even taking all four wheels off his sports car to ground him from his rounds. Cutting off his engagement to Mia is not enough to satisfy Brandi, who finally administers Darnell's punishment for his misogyny. ~ Michael Betzold, Rovi

      Funny movie about a woman that is sick and tired of unfaithful men and she has had enough. Martin was at the peek of his career, with hit sitcom and on-demand actor, when he made this funny movie that established Bobby Brown as an actor. Yeah, Bobby Brown was really acting in this movie

      This movie is a hoot! Martin Lawrence is at his finest when he finds himself trapped in a nightmarish relationship with a psychotic Lynn Whitfield. As always, Regina King is delightful and enchanting. The soundtrack is kickin'!!!!

      I'm a HUGE Martin Lawrence fan. Anything involving him is guarantee excitement. Martins' character Darnell reminds us of someone that we all know whether in our family or friend.
