    Edward Guthmann San Francisco Chronicle

    The best scenes are the ones that Fox shares with Tamala Jones, Wendy Raquel Robinson and the full-figured Monique as her sassy girlfriends. There's a ripe, crackling spontaneity when these women get together. show more

    Claudia Puig USA Today

    Women may appear a bit smarter here, but both sexes are portrayed as superficial and silly. show more

    Aside from the shamelessly promoted corporate sponsors, nobody emerges from this game a winner. But the biggest losers are the ones who paid good money to watch it. show more

    Boston Globe

    In addition to the film's two extremely likable stars, the strong supporting cast features a who's who of rising African-American actors. show more

    The movie does have charm and moments of humor, but what it doesn't have is romance. show more

    Lou Lumenick New York Post

    The characters are so cartoonish, it's hard to care on any level -- except that it wastes such talented performers. show more

    Loren King Chicago Tribune

    Throws its obvious predecessor, "Waiting to Exhale," into relief, making that 1995 syrupy revenge fantasy look positively Shakespearean next to the moronic Two Can Play That Game. show more

    Stephen Miller TV Guide

    A sassy romantic battle of the sexes with a refreshing African-American slant. show more
