Morris Chestnut avoids heavy, demanding emotional relationships and is wary of making personal commitments. Morris Chestnut often makes decisions solely for emotional or personal reasons, because something "feels right" or because he has always done it a certain way and is uncomfortable acting otherwise.
He needs ample mental stimulation and feels close to people with whom he can share thoughts and intellectual interests. Even when Chestnut thinks he is being rational, his prejudices, intuitions and feelings influence his thoughts a great deal.
The movie depicts very honestly, and in a humorous way, the games men and women play with each other.
Anthony Anderson is a riot as Keith's friend, Tony, who helps Keith battle the very sly Shante at her game.
