Writer and director Ice Cube (Anaconda, Friday) leads an all-star cast in The Players Club - a revealing, gritty and funny look at a gentlemen's club through the eyes of a strong-willed co-ed. For gorgeous and smart Diana (newcomer LisaRaye), there is no choice but to work her way through college. So it's difficult to resist the easy money that club owner Dollar Bill (Bernie Mac, How To Be A Player, Friday) offers her to strip at The Players club. She avoids the pitfalls of dancing by trusting no one except the respectable and funny DJ (Jamie Foxx, Booty Call, TV's The Jamie Foxx Show). But when her naïve cousin joins the club and gets into all sorts of trouble, Diana has to figure a way out for both of them before they go down with the building. With a heavy-hittin' soundtrack featuring Ice Cube, Master P and many more, The Players Club is a laugh-filled, music-backed, action packed ride through the sleaziest part of town!]]>

Top Customer Reviews
Soon, Diamond, is the toast of the Players Club, but trouble lurks in every corner not only for Diamond, but also for the club's owner. Realistic, somewhat sensitive to the trials many young women who are down on their luck face, director Ice Cube does a great job directing his actor in telling this tale of life in the new South. At times the story can run a bit too long, but at the end, the viewer is reassured that Diamond has moved on to bigger and better things in her life.
The film features great performances by Jamie Fox ("Any Given Sunday"), Charlie Murphy ("CB4"), and of course LisaRaye, who is a very talented actress. The "Players Club" is much more entertaining than some of its stripteasing film predecessors (e.g. "Showgirls"; "Striptease")and it does illustrate Ice Cube's talent behind the camera. It is a good film with a message of survival mixed in, and plenty of behind-the-scenes coverage of what goes on at a gentlemen's club.
