Naturally in this case, the LL Cool J character, Raymond, falls for Eva in a big way and cannot dump her which was the plan. When she moves to Chicago from LA for a new job, he even pursues her to tell her he actually does love her. They ride off into the sunset in Chicago together.
The unfortunate part of the film is the fake funeral that the men plan after kidnapping Ray and keeping him tied up in an abandoned warehouse because they believe that he has double crossed them by not dumping Eva as was the original deal.
This part of the movie keeps the movie from being better than it is. Therefore, I would say that seventy five per cent of the movie is fine but twenty five per cent of it is very weak. Oh well, you cannot have everything.
There are no surprises in the movie and everything that happens is pretty much predictable. The cast is fine and very good looking, the script is okay except for the aforementioned funeral scene. All in all, I liked the movie and a lot of people will enjoy it. It is what it is, a romantic comedy featuring a mostly Black cast. Not nearly as good as "The Best Man" but worth the time and money to watch and enjoy.
This video is a really good romance ad both Gabrielle and LL did a great job together. It's funny, sexy, sweet and clever. Most of all, it's just fun to watch.
Basically, "Eva" (Gabrielle) is an over-protective big sister who has become a man-eater in order to keep men at a distance. She'd been hurt years before by a man who wanted her to choose him over her sisters, so she chose her sisters (who she was raising). Her sisters are all in good relationships now, but Eva is still protecting them from being hurt regardless.
The men who love Eva's sisters can't take Eva's involvement in their lives anymore, so they pay a Player ("Ray" played by LL) to date her, make her happy, keep her away from her sisters, and then dump her. Ray goes for it, but then ends up falling for her.
What I really like about this story is how Ray and Eva soften around each other. Their characters grow because of each other, and those kinds of movies are rare to find.
Plus, it's just really funny.
So, if you want a sweet, romantic comedy to watch, I highly recommend this one.
