5.0 out of 5 stars The Crazy and Wild World of Stripping! November 6, 2004
By Marcus
Format:DVD
This movie sounded stupid when I first heard about it. Who could make a 2 hour movie based on stripping at a club and have it make sense? Obviously, Ice Cube could. This movie stars LisaRaye in her film debut as Diana, who is known to the stripping world as Diamond, a hardworking college student who needs a better way to pay to get herself through school. While working at a shoe store, she meets Trixie (Adele Givens) and Ronnie (Chrystale Wilson). They convince her into quitting her low-paying job and working at The Player's Club, a run down joint owned by a lowlife loser named Dollar Bill (Bernie Mac). When Diana's cousin Ebony (Monica Calhoun) comes into town, she tells Diana that she wants to work at the player's club. Ebony gets caught up in this world and is drowning in the lows of "using what you've got to get what you want". This movie is a thrill ride and the fight scene towards the end is the best part of the movie. Featured in the movie are Jamix Foxx, A.J. Johnson, and John Amos. The plot is perfect and the script is well written. This movie has to be one of my favorite.

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining drama September 17, 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I don't know why, but I've always liked this film. Yes it's crass and everything that guy said, but it still doesn't fail to entertain. I'm white, sorry.. and bisexual (not sorry for that though hehe) but this is still one of my favorite films, mainly for the beautiful women, good acting, and the different characters. Diamond is beautiful and sexy, but tough and classy, and also smart about what she decides to do and not do. Ronnie is a complicated character because sometimes she is helpful and you almost want to like her, but other times she is lying, coniving, and betrays people who trust her. I think the reason why ice cube "kept it real" is mainly because he is a rapper and because of his image. He played kind of a thug up to no good. What did you think he would play a cop or something? I also really enjoyed the police spanking scene, that was hysterically funny. Another one of my favorite scenes, is when diamond first dances, and the other is when ronnie stands up after ebony gets off her lap and she has on a red cowgirl hat and thong, and as she walks away you see how nice her body is, and how nice her a** is, as well as how tall she is. And i loved her blond hairdo's. Too bad she was one of the crazy strippers that ends up getting her a** whoooped by diamond in the end. Another great scene. Which is why i never understood the term catfight because girls can be great fighters, i've seen some pretty brutal and vicious fights involving girls where fists are involved and broken noses, no nail scratching like most guys think. I once saw a fight between two new york girls outside a club, and the girl's head was being slammed into the cement over and over like a ragdoll. I didnt think a head could handle that much trama. The term catfight, is merely a sexist and stereotypical made up word by men. But anyways, this movie is entertaining, and i never get tired of it. This may be a guy movie mostly, but i'm a woman, and i like it!

2.0 out of 5 stars Like someone else said... Cult Classic! February 26, 2004
By T Mack
Format:DVD
This isn't one of the best black films around, but it is a cult classic. Funny, and dramatic at times, the plot isnt' all that great but holds together a little better than some. Tired of seeing these type of movies though.

Format:DVD
If Ice Cube were as great a filmmaker as he is a rapper, then "The Player's Club" would have more to offer besides being a hip-hop flavored "Showgirls." Wishful thinking. The appealing LisaRaye stars as a struggling college student who abandons her part-time shoe salesman job to begin a life of a stripper. Along the way, she befriends another stripper and gets into all sorts of drama. The film's script is clumsy and never rises above the predictable and stereotypical. There's also a very unpleasant rape scene that's unnecessary as it is vile. Cube, I'm sure, wanted to "keep it real" by making this film as raw as possible, but in doing so, he forgot to "keep it right" by making a decent and believable film. "The Player's Club" isn't the worst film I've seen, but unlike "Showgirls," it isn't bad enough to qualify as camp. It's just simply bad.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Promising Directorial Debut December 3, 2000
Format:DVD
In his directorial debut, rapper/actor Ice Cube chose to paint a tale of a young, single mother living in the South, who takes a job as a stripper to survive in the real word. Diamond (excellently played by actress LisaRaye), one of the top names at the "Players Club" is a young mother trying to support herself and her young son. Determined to attain her college degree, she is lured to the world of stripteasing by two strippers who encounter her at a dead-end retail job.
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.
