Rapper and actor Ice Cube's directorial debut, The Players Club comes to DVD with both a widescreen anamorphic transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1, and an inferior standard full-frame transfer. Closed-captioned English soundtracks are rendered in both Dolby Digital 5.1 and Dolby Digital Surround. English subtitles are accessible. Supplemental materials include the original theatrical trailer, biographies of the cast and crew, and a pair of music videos, "We Be Clubbin" and "My Loved Ones." New Line has done a very good job with this release that will surely please fans of Cube, and may find the film a broader audience than saw it in the theater.

Synopsis


The Players Club
Rapper/ actor Ice Cube directed this urban comedy-drama about African-American single mother Diana (Lisa Raye), who aims for a career as a broadcast journalist. To finance her education, she works as a stripper at the raucous Players Club, run by hustler Dollar Bill (Bernie Mac). When naive Ebony (Monica Calhoun), Diana's young cousin, also signs on at the club, Ronnie (Chrystale Wilson) attempts to lead Ebony into prostitution, creating conflicts, while club deejay Blue (Jamie Foxx) begins dating Diana. This film is Ice Cube's feature directorial debut; he also scripted and appears in a supporting role. ~ Bhob Stewart, Rovi

    Making some strippers look educated

    With his directorial debut, Ice Cube showed that he is a threat behind the scenes as well as in front of the camera. Lisaraye did pretty good as leading actress, with this being her debut also, but Jamie Foxx did his thing. Now Bernie Mac, once again stole the show with his lines and acting.

    I love Jamie Foxx. Charlie Murphy, Bernie Mac, rapper Luke, and all of those sexy women. It also has a good storyline.

    not a movie for everyone. if you are looking for great acting, probably not the movie for you. but definitely a "hood" classic.
