Consensus: As a romantic comedy, Two Can Play That Game is more mean-spirited than romantic. Also, some critics say the movie is misogynistic in its attitudes and has too many blatant product placements.

Few recent movies have conceived their central female character more contemptuously -- a fanatic for a lifestyle that appears to have come from the bestselling The Rules and someone who is obviously set up for a satiric fall.

Michael Dequina

A cute little trifle that delivers on the good time it promises.
