Through all of the office politics jealous friends and nosey landlords the couple finds one another hard to resist. The rules of love have just been rewritten.System Requirements:Running Time 85 MinFormat: DVD MOVIE Genre: COMEDY Rating: NR UPC: 634991282222

Work place romances. They can really be tricky. Gina Torres (Serenity) stars in Fair Game as a busy executive named Stacey. Her co-worker Michael is in a transitional period but clearly enjoys their tryst. After asking one of her co-workers to stay late at work they find themselves caught up in a moment of passion she dismisses as a "one time flukish thing." Their one time flukish thing turns into a multi-time thing. When Mike finds himself needing a place to stay he turns to Stacey who has vowed that their affair is a no strings attached thing. Stacey opens her apartment to Mike and let's him stay for a few days. Mike is stuck sleeping on the couch. He wants more from Stacey than she is willing to give. He goes above and beyond to impress her. When a handsome executive starts spending time with Stacey, Michael is really left to ponder what he should do next about the situation.

Fair Game is a very interesting film about a common topic that is not addressed much on the big screen. It's a really great film. Stacey and Michael have a real chemistry, but the prospect of a big promotion and other factors stand in the way of the two of them pursuing a relationship.

Fair Game won several awards on the film festival circuit. Although Gina Torres is probably the most well known cast member, Fair Game features stellar acting from Christopher B. Duncan, Kellita Smith, Michael Whaley, Terri Vaughn, Mother Love and comedian Mark Christopher Lawrence.

I like buying these types of movies (One's that are not highly promoted) because they usually have decent story lines. This wasn't a movie where the men were degrading the women or the women shaking their behinds all over the place.

It was a movie of black professionals who were finding their way in their professions and personal lives. A good date movie.

Speaking as someone who was in the film, I admit I am going to be highly biased. Keeping that in mind. I loved working on this film and I loved the script. It is a wonderful romantic comedy and I highly recommend it to anyone who likes that genere.

This could have been a great movie. Excellent plot ideas, an experienced cast, good cinematography. The direction though... Gina Torres is a good actress but for a moment I thought her horribly stillted performance was the sign of, "Oh she's just starting out." then I looked at the publishing date and realised that it was the director's fault. This had all the right elements to make a great romantic comedy but then the director dropped the ball and lost it down a sewer drain.
So many parts of this move did not mesh properly, the side plot ideas were good but attached to the movie like trying to add multiple wigs to an irish wolfhound. The twists and turns of the plot were either presented as so unexpected it was, "Where did that come from and what was the point." or so badly telegraphed as, "Why are the characters surprised about this?"

Michael Whaley, either go back to film school for more practice in a less damaging environment or please don't direct again. Lots of experience as an actor does not a director make, particularly when you act in and direct your first movie outing.

Watch this move for an evening's light entertainment nothing more. If however you are a film student you should definitely watch this as an example of how micromanaging good talent will mess up your movie.

This movies was so good I had to watch it again in 2 weeks. I did'nt like the Boss lady at first with her 'sexual harrassment' that was never called that because she and her employee, Michael, was enjoying it each time it happened.

But the way the movie turned out was just fantastic. Who would have ever believed that the Boss Lady and Michael, employee...Well, I'll have to let you fine out what else happens.

It is worth the money and you will smile, laugh, love it all. Tell others to buy this movie and many other Black movies to support our people. If we don't who will.

I am building a Black movie library for myself. I love my Black movies because I am tired of looking at White movies. I have them but there needs to be a change in my life. I want to see more of my
people in good, decent movies that don't have cursing, sex, nudity, bad language, nappy leaving a bad taste in my mouth.

There are a lot of Black decent movies out there, and you just have to look for them. I search everywhere for them, read review and decide to buy. I also buy black plays that I never got to see or even knew they were out there.

So lets keep buy Black movies and plays and support this media that is just beginning to thrive from us, no one else will but us.

Also buy Fire & Ice; Breakin' All The Rules; After All; Masquerade; Marrying Up (stage play); A Private Affair (BET). You wont' be sorry. Get them all from Amazon.

THIS IS AN ENJOYABLE AND LOVEABLE MOVIE.

This movie is not that great at all. It is a waste of money. It shows about office power and romance between a boss who is the female for a change and a male who is the employees. Both of them and all of the people in the office is so stupid and not even close to funny. Bid on it so that you can enjoy a few beers while watching it. It might blow your buzz however. And for me to say that makes it really really bad. (because I do not even drink).
