Movie Reviews

Worth Buying!
Didi Mahaffey | Atlanta, GA | 03/04/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Playas Ball" is the story of a young star athlete who -- right after signing a major shoe endorsement deal -- is hit with a paternity suit by a woman with whom he has not been involved. The movie's intent is to show the public that, although often envied, professional athletes are frequently exploited. This movie will engage the viewer and take them into the oft misunderstood world of professional sports. The script was well written and the production is great."

"Allen Payne is a good actor in my opinion but he should avoid poorly directed/scripted films such as this. I enjoy seeing Elise Neal in anything because she also is a fine actor and very easy on the eyes to boot. Her character did represent some semblance of logic in this disorganized film. I guess any work beats no work at all. I bought the DVD so I earned the right to be critical, two thumbs down from me. Are films about Playas and Hustlers, pimps and Ho's all we want?"

"This movie wasn't exactly terrible, the plot was decent at times although it got dumb in the middle.

1. I think there are a few charachters that were needless and brought down the quality of the movie. The cooks (the son and dad) kind of made this movie dumb for me, along with the cousin and MC Lytes charachter. None of these charachters really improved this movie.
2. Treach was terrible as well. He's always been a terrible actor to me, ever since Jasons Lyric! In fact, imagine Treach's charachter in Jasons Lyric, well it's the same charachter here just bald!
3. And this plot twist that every one is talking about was not that big of a suprise. I figured it out the first time the "other woman" came to the house. If you pay close attention you'll see this plot twist and it is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO dumb.

The only thing anyone has said about this movie that I agreed with is Allen Payne and Elise Neil had good chemistry. I would love to see them together again."
